History of Secondary Suites
In a 2010, secondary suites were permitted as part of a pilot project in the area South of McKenzie Avenue. Building on that experience, a study was undertaken to explore the potential legalization of secondary suites in the area North of McKenzie.
The goal of the study was to look at the issues and possible regulations regarding the potential legalization of secondary suites North of McKenzie Avenue, in consultation with Saanich residents.
On October 24th, 2014 Council gave fourth and final reading to bylaw changes that expanded the area where secondary suites are permitted in Saanich.
