2009 EcoDensity Initiative for accessory dwellings in Vancouver BC*

The city of Vancouver, British Columbia created the EcoDensity Initiative and relaxed regulations to encourage the construction of laneway houses with the intention of increasing density and creating alternative housing options in an unaffordable housing market.  Since the inception of the program over 2,660 permits have been issued and density has been increased without altering the character of the neighborhoods.
