Secondary suite update 14/04/2020


  • April 17, 2020 
  • It is now official the amnesty period for secondary suites has been extended to December 2021. The city will be updating their website today. Anyone with an "illegal" secondary suite (basement) should take advantage of this extra time to make their suite legal, the city has stated there will be heavy fines for anyone operating an illegal suite after this date. I have some excellent contacts to help with the process of getting suites made legal, as well as contractors who are very familiar and experienced with work required. Feel free to contact me for more details.

City of Calgary website still has the following information posted:

What’s changing in 2020?

  • In June 2020, we will reinstate fees for the development permit ($471) and suite registry ($232).
  • All new secondary suites built after March 2018 must comply with the National Building Code - 2019 Alberta Edition. The most notable requirement is a second heating source, such as a furnace, for each unit. However, starting June 2020, owners of suites that existed before March 2018 should discuss their suite with a Safety Codes Officer regarding minimum life safety requirements and whether a second furnace will apply to them.
  • All secondary and backyard suites must be on our suite registry by May 31, 2020 in order to avoid fines.
