Registered dwellings

Many students live in a second-unit dwellings due to their affordability, but it’s important to ensure they are legal before you move in. A second-unit dwelling (often a basement apartment) is a self-contained unit with cooking, sleeping, and bathroom facilities located within a townhouse, semi-detached, or detached home.

Depending on where you live, a second-unit dwelling may be required to be registered with your city by your landlord. Brampton and Mississauga require second unit dwellings to be registered. A registered second unit ensures your place is safe, legal, and livable. It must comply with the Ontario Building Code, Ontario Fire Code, and Zoning By-Law.

Check if a second unit dwelling is registered
