Our ongoing workshop series is aimed toward homeowners and professionals seeking detailed information on how to assess properties for conformance with the City of Toronto's zoning by-laws. Our team also offers on-site group sessions that are excellent for realtors, developers, and design professionals. Send us an email to inquire about our team sessions or to schedule a workshop at your home or office.
Our workshops are a platform to educate homeowners and professionals on how to assess properties for compliance with the by-laws, and personally address questions about specific conditions, sites, and contemplated projects. The hour-long sessions provide a history of laneway housing in Toronto and an overview of the new by-law, its reasonings, and key planning goals while clarifying its requirements in simple terms and diagrams. As a proverbial on-ramp to the process of realizing your laneway suite, our workshops eliminate uncertainty and provide a broad vision for what to expect in developing your laneway property.
Our workshops provide information regarding the history of laneway housing, the design, permitting and building process, and relevant green building concepts and approaches. The sessions also feature schematic financial overviews including construction costing, financing, property taxes, rebates, incentives, and cost-saving measures. You will be provided with resources, references, and contacts to help you design and build your very own laneway suite.
