backyard homeThis initiative aims to accelerate development of Additional Dwelling Units (ADUs), including backyard homes, within the city's Urban Low-rise Zone. It will also offer grants for the construction of ADUs. To accelerate the development process, pre-approved ADU "templates" will be made available for free-standing units. 

What is an Additional Dwelling Unit (ADU)?

An Additional Dwelling Unit generally describes adding another separate living space to the home you already have. They can be built inside the house, onto the house, or in the yard. Depending on the size of your lot, an ADU is allowed in most urban residential neighbourhoods.
