MONTREAL NEIGHBOURHOODS: AN OPPORTUNITY FOR SOCIAL DIVERSITY?

City Talks

Rich in social diversity, certain Montreal neighbourhoods have recently undergone a gentrification that aims to revitalize buildings and public spaces but that has also created tension among long-standing and new residents. Is it possible to change the social fabric of a district in a way that respects all of its residents, and if so, under what conditions?

Speakers:
Ron Rayside, Partner, Rayside Labossière
Daniel Weinstock, Director, Institute for Health and Social Policy
Nathalie Fortin, President, Coalition montréalaise des tables de quartier
