Secondary Suites

Under Regina Zoning Bylaw No. 9250, (Chapter 5 & 6), secondary suites are allowed in most residential zones and in some commercial, industrial and special zones and can only be located in detached 1-unit dwellings. They are not permitted in duplexes, semidetached dwellings or other types of dwellings.

Building permits for secondary suites

Your proposed secondary suite must meet strict building code and zoning bylaw regulations. The Secondary Suite Regulations lists the requirements involving windows, fire protection, forced entry protection, separation of dwelling units, sound proofing, smoke alarms, hand rails, room heights, air duct system, furnaces, plumbing, exits, and address naming conventions for your secondary suite.
