About this Event

Calgary Backyard Suites Workshop

If you are considering building a Backyard Suite, and want to know if it would be right for you, this workshop is a must.

This evening event covers everything from rules and regulations, City bylaws, and costs, to challenges, and the building process. Information presented at this workshop will help you save time, money, and headaches if you decide to build a suite. The value of preparing to develop your property by connecting with experts, and other homeowners who have built Backyard Suites cannot be overstated.

In summary, we will be covering the following topics:

  • Intro to Backyard Suites

Hear from Ashley Salvador, Alberta's leading backyard housing expert, about the ways backyard suites are helping Albertans live more flexible and fulfilling lives.

  • Rules, Regulations, Zoning and the Permitting Process

The City of Calgary will be presenting the latest Backyard Suite rules & regulations. You'll learn what types of lots can accommodate a Backyard Suite, what rules your suite must conform to, how big it can be, how it can be oriented, etc.

  • Backyard Suite Owners Panel Discussion

Learn from everyday homeowners who have gone through the process of building a Backyard Suite. Our panelists will be sharing tips, tricks, challenges, and benefits associated with building a Backyard Suite. The panel will be an interactive Q&A style discussion.

  • Financing Your Suite

Hear the options for financing a backyard suite from a Mortgage and Finance specialist, and receive a budget template.

  • The Appraisal and Resale Value of Backyard Suites

Any significant project on your property has the potential to change the value of your site. Learn about value, appraisal, and unique properties in Calgary.

  • Builder/Designer Showcase

You'll have the opportunity to get to know Calgary's leading Backyard Suite builders and designers. Several different builders and designers will each give a short presentation on their work and what their business can offer you.
