How These Women Are Going to Legalize Tiny House Living in BC – Thumbnail


Sam and Stasia co-founded the BC Tiny House Collective to legitimize and legalize tiny houses in the province of British Columbia, Canada.

They now have thousands of people supporting them, and over a hundred volunteers to help with everything from building tiny houses and analyzing research data, to updating their website.

They have a 3-pronged approach to legalizing tiny houses:

1) Educate and Engage: with the community;

2) Research: to find out who is interested in tiny houses, and what the barriers are to having them legalized in Vancouver and municipalities across BC;

3) Pilot Projects: to observe and reflect on what works and what doesn’t before legalizing on a large scale.

We really admire these two ladies and the incredible amount of passion, thought, and time they’ve put into this project to support and encourage the tiny house movement in BC.

We hope they’re successful in their goals so that other cities, provinces, and states can observe and learn from their successes and challenges. We hope to see a future where tiny homes are legitimate housing options.
