Garage Suite Development

The City of St. Albert regulates Garage Suites in residential areas, as per Land Use Bylaw 9/2005, Section 8.12, "Dwelling, Garage Suite". Property owners who wish to build a Garage Suite are required to obtain a development permit. Only one Garage Suite is permitted on a lot with a single-detached house and must be located in a rear or side yard.

A Garage Suite is accessory to the principal single-detached house, has an entrance separate from the vehicle entrance to the garage, and contains cooking, washroom, living, and sleeping facilities which are separate from those of the principal dwelling on the site.
