A motion will be going before Calgary council on Monday to seek higher punishments for residents who manage illegal secondary suites in their homes.
Councillor Andre Chabot wants to have more of a consensus about the process of registering a secondary suite and come down hard on landlords who advertise an unregistered suite.
Chabot says it’s all in the name of safety, because legal suites meet Alberta building and safety codes.
The motion also includes a request for administrators to come up with a list of zones that would be allowed to have secondary suites.
