Two women, Sam and Stasia, co-founded the BC Tiny House Collective in 2016 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’re using a 3-pronged approach to try and legalize tiny houses in their area that seems very interesting and effective:
1) Educate and engage with the community;
2) Research to find out who is interested in tiny houses and what current barriers (legal or other) prevent tiny houses 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.
