Victoria is the latest Capital Region community to take a look at tiny homes. City staff have been directed to look at various housing options including tiny homes as part of the strategic plan.

A tiny home is typically defined as a home with between 100 and 400 square feet of living space.

In Victoria movable tiny homes are not allowed but garden suites are, meaning any one with a single family dwelling can build a suite in their backyard – excluding duplexes or homes with secondary suites.

Marian McCoy, spokesperson for Tiny House Advocates of Vancouver Island (THAVI), says no municipalities in the CRD allow for movable tiny houses with wheels to be lived in full time but says the need is increasing and municipalities need to exert more effort towards authorizing them.

Would you consider living in a tiny home? Take our poll and let us know what you think.
