The Giving Tree, Tiny Homes Ontario

Bianca, founder of The Giving Tree Consulting and Tiny Homes Ontario, lives with her husband and four year old son in their 240 square foot Tiny Home on 6 acres in Southern Ontario. Her passions are minimalism, simplistic living, permaculture and affordable housing! Having downsized with her family almost 4 years ago, she has dedicated her business, The Giving Tree, to research and advocacy related to tiny homes as affordable housing options for Ontarians. You can find her speaking passionately about small space living and minimalism, gardening, and spending most of her time with her greatest obsession, her family.

Presentation: Tiny Homes on Leased Land

Bianca will be presenting her Affordable Housing Framework, “Tiny Homes on Leased Land”. This framework outlines a unique way to unlock affordable housing, enabling tiny house dwellers to finance a tiny home and legally locate that home on property through current municipal bylaws. She will outline types and certifications of Tiny, Modular and Manufactured homes, how to live tiny, how to find a builder, how to find land, and, importantly, how tiny homes are becoming legal on leased land through her Affordable Housing Framework and discussions with local municipalities.
