A secondary dwelling is a self contained building that is detached, and subordinate to the principal dwelling in terms of size, scale and massing. This use is exclusively used for occupancy by one household. These dwellings may include the following form(s): 

- Carriage Housing—a dwelling that is constructed above a detached garage;

or

- Cottage Housing—a one storey dwelling that is constructed at building grade. This housing form does not include a basement or a half-storey.

These are great ideas!

Despite the uninformed opinions of tenants, their advocates, some media and public housing agencies, government does not have the money to make a dent. Even the federal government’s 10-year $40-billion housing plan could generate only perhaps 18,900 units/year across Canada.

Reprinted from BC Assessment Authority: 


PRINCE GEORGE — In the next few days, owners of almost 250,000 properties throughout Northern BC can expect to receive their 2022 assessment notices, which reflect market value as of July 1, 2021.


"All during the pandemic, the real estate market has remained robust across the province including higher demand throughout Northern BC, which has resulted in higher 2022 assessment values for most homeowners in the region," says Northen BC Deputy Assessor Beau Rossel. “Northern BC property values for most communities are generally up five to 35 percent with only a couple of exceptions.” 
 
As B.C.'s trusted provider of property assessment information, BC Assessment collects, monitors and analyzes property data throughout the year. 
 
Overall, Northern BC’s total assessments increased from over $72 billion 
in 2021 to over $81.7 billion this year. A total of about $1.24 billion of the region’s updated assessments is from new construction, subdivisions and the rezoning of properties. 
 
The Northern BC region encompasses approximately 70 per cent of the province: stretching east to the Alberta border, north to the Yukon border, west to Bella Coola including Haidi Gwaii and to the south, just north of Clinton.
 

The summaries below provides estimates of typical 2021 versus 2022 assessed values of properties throughout the region.  These examples demonstrate market trends for single-family residential properties by geographic area:*
