Tiny home communities can help

Housing Options

Since 2017 we have worked to develop our tiny home community plan to expand affordable and supportive housing options in Canada. While we know it won’t solve all of the problems, it can help be part of a larger solution.

A tiny home provides an affordable housing option

An individual or couple, builds or purchases a tiny home. Where they canu2019t afford to purchase, a rent to own program will help them to transition into homeownership.

The Tiny Town network makes a tiny living lifestyle possible

The Tiny Town network of communities provides places where tiny homeowners can live within commuting distance of a host city.

Cooperative town ownership creates affordable places to live

The Tiny Town network is one large cooperative that tiny homeowners belong to. As members they can live in any community, change locations within the community, or move to a different community without having to leave and rejoin the cooperative.

One perceived obstacle to Tiny Town community developments is zoning. Ministeru2019s Zoning Orders (MZOs), modifications to existing Land Use Designations, or new designations can be created to enable the development of tiny home communities.

Similarly, other municipalities can take the initiative to enable tiny home communities through zoning and by-law reforms.
