What is a Secondary Suite?

A Secondary Suite is a type of secondary dwelling that consists of a separate, independent dwelling unit located within a principal single detached dwelling. The Secondary Suite is to be developed as contained within the primary dwelling and not to appear as a second adjoined principal dwelling. Additionally, a Secondary Suite requires the principal dwelling (the part of the dwelling which is the primary living space and not the secondary suite) to be occupied by the owner of the dwelling.
