Secondary Dwelling Units

Secondary Dwelling Units (Secondary Suites)

The City of North Bay recently passed an amendment to the Official Plan (Official Plan Amendment 20) and Zoning By-law (By-law 2018-46) that permits Secondary Dwelling Units in the City of North Bay.

In order to assist property owners with the construction of a new Secondary Dwelling Unit, or going through the process to recognize an existing Secondary Dwelling Unit, the City has prepared some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and a process chart to help provide information and explanation about the requirements.
