Learn about the City's proposed zoning approach and licensing strategy for multi-tenant (rooming) houses and share your thoughts.
The zoning involves setting up five pilots areas where there is a concentration of multi-tenant houses that are not currently permitted. The licensing strategy includes new requirements to protect tenants and mitigate impacts on the neighbourhood.
The consultation sessions will seek input on things like:
how multi-tenant houses should be zoned for
maximum number of rooms allowed in a multi-tenant home
what requirements multi-tenant operators should have in place (site plan, waste management, parking, maintenance, etc)
Pilot areas (see ward maps).
