Secondary Suites

Secondary suits are an accessory dwelling unit added to or created within a single family residence that can be rented and provides basic requirements for living, sleeping, cooking, and sanitation.

Steinbach is in need of affordable housing, and this need may be met by allowing homeowners to create or legalize a secondary suite, with certain conditions being met.

Block Parties

Parties are always a highlight during the summer months. To help facilitate the fun safely, the City of Steinbach allows block parties on selected neighbourhood residential streets such as cul-de-sacs or non-through streets.

The person organizing the event must submit an application to the City at least two days in advance of the party date. The applicant is required to give their name, telephone number, address, desired location, date, and time of the proposed block party.  If the location is approved, the resident will be furnished with sufficient approved traffic control barricades to restrict access at each street closure location. 

There are no application fees for block parties. 

Block Party Application

Residents may contact the City's Community Services Officer at 204.346.6561.

Garage Sales & Parking

A garage sale notice board is available along the sidewalk on Kroeker Avenue at Elmdale Street (behind the Steinbach Fire Hall) for posting or viewing information about upcoming garage sales. This centralized location for advertisement of community garage sales is intended to replace the use of signs on boulevards, which are often distracting and dangerous for traffic reasons.
