TINY TOWNS FOR BIG IMPACT

ABOUT THE
TINY TOWN ASSOCIATION

 

Over the years we’ve encountered many organizations who have blazed a trail for tiny home living and especially in helping those that need it most. We are grateful for their leadership, consultation and amazing resources. 
The Tiny Town Association’s mission has always been to enable tiny homes as affordable and supportive housing options. 

TINY TOWN ASSOCIATION

MISSION

To positively Impact people’s lives by offering beautiful, permanently affordable and environmentally sustainable micro-housing, developed through a lens of wellness and community centric living spaces.

Together we can help people thrive by expanding the housing options in Canada.

On September 29, 2017 the Tiny Town Association received its official Not-For-Profit (NFP) Federal Incorporation certification as:

Tiny Town Association / Association des Petites Villes

OUR GOAL

We believe that sustainably built, affordable, tiny, and small homes (collectively referred to as tiny homes) are sensible housing options for a portion of society. Our mission is to enable them by encouraging the development of places where tiny homes can reside.

Through advocation, demonstration, standards development, design/build assistance, as well as building tiny home communities, we will expand the affordable housing options available across Canada, within a plan that is environmentally responsible, replicable, and will remain affordable for future generations.

OUR VISION

As a not-for-profit, the Association is working to establish ways that tiny homes can integrate into society, not to disrupt traditional forms of housing, but support them.

The increasing costs of homeownership, especially for first-time owners are going to impact the resale value of homes when more Boomers look to downsize. If there isn’t a market of people that own homes and are looking to move into something bigger that they can afford using savings and equity, we’ll be faced with an abundance of big empty homes.

Tiny homes can be that stepping stone into and out of traditional homeownership.

OUR VALUES

We believe in deeply and and long-lasting affordable housing models with tiny homes as the main feature product.

We believe that community is key to any thriving town and thus community gathering spaces, gardens, work and support spaces are essential.

We believe people are wired to connect with and thrive along side with nature.

By designing and building sustainable, eco-responsible developments, along with a cooperative model that emphasizes community involvement, we are working towards a housing option that is also good for the planet.

We're excited to partner with local builders, developers, municipalities and the Province to create a pilot pocket community or neighbourhood in our region within the next two years.

These micro-layout neighbourhoods will be a game-changer for both urban and suburban areas looking to minimize a development footprint, maximize community spirit and see all those in need find deeper affordable housing.
