Thank you to the leaders on City Council!

Last Monday, City Council debated a plan that would have allowed discretionary use of secondary suites citywide. Secondary suite applicants from many areas in Calgary currently have to plead before City Council on a case by case basis seeking a subjective approval. The proposed plan would have allowed homeowners wishing to build secondary suites to apply to City staff and receive approval based on clear requirements and rigorous regulations set out by Council. Unfortunately, this proposal was rejected by an 8-7 vote.

We would like to thank the Mayor and the 6 Councillors who sought to find a reasonable compromise that would allow Calgary to move forward on secondary suites based on facts, sound decision making and broad citywide support. Their courage and leadership on this issue have brought Calgary closer than ever to achieving much needed secondary suite reform. In light of the overwhelming evidence, we are optimistic that a majority of Council members will support crucial secondary suites reform later this term.

Thank the Secondary Suite Supporters on City Council!

We encourage you to take a moment to thank the Mayor and these Councillors for their courage and leadership on secondary suites, and to ask them for their continued support of secondary suites in Calgary.
