What is a Laneway House?

Laneway housing is a detached dwelling on a single-family lot, facing the back laneway where the garage is located. One exterior parking space (minimum) is required on all lots with a laneway home. Houses that already have a secondary suite are still eligible. 

Why Build a Laneway House?

Every owner has their own reason for wanting to build a laneway home. Here are the most common reasons:

Aging parents: A home in the backyard provides close proximity for parents who are fairly independent but still need some care. This could also be a space for caregivers.


Adult children: Instead of moving out entirely, a separate space on the same property provides growing children a cheaper alternative to renting their own place while going to school or starting their career.


Extra income: The laneway house can be rented out as an extra income earner.


Downsizing: Owners can move into their laneway house and rent out their main residence when downsizing.


Building community: Having a home face the back of the property adds liveliness to the back lane, as well as adding the option to plant greenery where there would otherwise be only a garage and concrete.
