Montreal Neighbourhoods: An Opportunity for Social Diversity?

City Talks

LECTURE PRESENTED ON MARCH 9, 2016

Rich in social diversity, certain Montreal neighbourhoods have recently undergone 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?
