gal and safe secondary suites in Calgary. This registry is aimed to promote the importance of public safety and make citizens aware of the safety requirements for a secondary suite. Now it will be easier than ever before to determine if the suite you are living in, or looking to rent or buy, has been registered and approved by the city.

If a suite has been inspected, has all necessary permits, and meets the requirements outlined by the Alberta Safety Code, it will be listed in this registry. An approved suite will be issued a numbered sticker that corresponds with their address. Owners then have the opportunity to place this sticker on the entry point of their suite to inform current and future residents that their home is both safe and legal.
Another secondary suites development this past month was the introduction of the Development Permit Exemption Program. If your property is zoned to allow a secondary suite, or you already have a Land Use Redesignation, then you can skip the development permit process – allowing you to invest more time and money into the development of your suite!
