A citizen is complaining of the refusal of Arrondissement d’Ahuntsic-Cartierville to grant him a street address for a studio apartment he set up in his home’s basement, for the purpose of renting it.

The borough refused this request because the citizen’s property does not offer enough space to create an additional parking space.

Following our intervention, the borough reviewed the file, revised its interpretation of its regulations and concluded that the citizen could set up a dwelling in his residence’s basement, without having to add a new parking space.

A Transformation permit was therefore issued for this studio apartment and the citizen was also granted a street address.
