Secondary suite amnesty ending in West Kelowna

West Kelowna’s amnesty for registering secondary suites will end Sept. 14.

Last year the district adopted a bylaw making it quicker and easier to provide affordable rental housing throughout the community, as well as increasing opportunities for housing affordability.

At the time, it started a 12-month amnesty for homeowners with non-compliant suites, extending a chance to either legalize and register their suites or shut them down. A six-month extension of the amnesty may be considered where applicants have made a full application for the conversion and legalization of any existing suite prior to the end of the 12-month amnesty period.
