Laneway Suites: A New Housing Typology for Toronto

The final report in a series prepared for Evergreen’s Laneway Suitesproject, A New Housing Typology for Toronto puts forward recommended actions and performance standards to support laneway suites in Toronto.

The report outcomes build on community consultations, online survey responses, as well as technical discussions with City of Toronto staff and councillors in the Toronto and East York District.

Finally, it recommends actions including the establishment of an as-of-right planning framework for laneway suites alongside a set of recommended performance standards that will provide a strong foundation for the future of laneway suites in Toronto.
