Dwelling, marginal, occupied by usual residents
Part A - Short definition:
Part B - Detailed definition:
An occupied private dwelling which, because it was not built, maintained or converted for year-round use, does not meet the two conditions for year-round occupancy (a source of heat or power and shelter from the elements). To be included, the marginal dwelling must be permanently occupied by a person or a group of persons who have no other usual place of residence. Examples of occupied marginal dwellings are non-winterized cottages or cabins and unconverted barns or garages.
See Figure 22 for an illustration of the 2011 dwelling universe.
