Tiny Homes – An Alternative to Conventional Housing

Affordable housing continues to be a concern across British Columbia and there is an urgent need to increase housing options for homebuyers. Tiny houses are not currently permitted in the Lower Mainland and are not regulated through the BC Building Code or Vancouver Building Bylaw. This project identifies lessons learned in other jurisdictions and explores barriers and opportunities for implementation in B.C.

The study includes interviews with experts related to the tiny house industry, and analyzes opportunities to regulate and support the construction of single tiny houses and villages.
