MPP Steve Clark says the province is taking steps to help create more and different types of homes. He was in Leeds and the Thousand Islands Township this morning to launch the new tiny homes innovation guide. Clark noted tiny homes are less costly to build and maintain, making them more affordable than traditional housing. 

The new Build or Buy a Tiny Home guide offers practical advice about building or buying a factory-built tiny home that complies with Ontario’s Building Code, according to Clark.

 “We know that the demand for alternative, innovative and more affordable types of housing is growing,” he explained. “Our innovation housing guides provide important information about different types of housing, so that people can make well-informed decisions about the type of home that best meets their needs and budget.”

Clark joined Township of Leeds and the Thousand Islands Mayor Corinna Smith-Gatcke for today’s local launch of the guide and also thanked the township for embracing the concept by amending its zoning bylaws to accommodate tiny homes.
