Secondary suite charges
Secondary suites are defined as a second dwelling unit, located within the structure of an owner-occupied single-family dwelling.
If there is no secondary suite at your property, call the Secondary Suite Clerk at 604-591-4516 to arrange for an inspection of your home to confirm the secondary suite has been removed.
Failure to do so will indicate to us that you have a secondary suite and your property will be assessed the additional utility levy for the current tax year.
All properties paying for secondary suite garbage charge will be permitted to put out one additional can or bag, for a total of 3 cans or bags. Garbage charges will be included on the annual property tax notice.
If you exceed your garbage can or bag limit, purchase garbage stickers for $2.75 from various City locations. Call 604-591-4340 for more information or get other contact information for a list of extra garbage sticker locations.
