​​​Secondary Suites

The Town of Midland passed a by-law in April 2010, which allows for Secondary Suites in single-detached residential dwellings. A Secondary Suite is a self-contained dwelling unit located within a single detached dwelling, secondary to the principal residence. By definition, a Secondary Suite has independent cooking, sleeping, and bathing facilities, as well as direct access to outside. The Town is requiring that all existing and new Secondary Suites to be registered under the Registry By-law 2010-32.
