#CityDoc: Gentrification, a Montreal primer

In Montreal’s former industrial district of St-Henri, condo construction has surpassed the construction of affordable housing units. With rent rising and a new class of people moving to the area, two leaders in St-Henri discuss the rapid gentrification happening in this part of southwest Montreal.

#CityDoc: Gentrification, a Montreal primer features Shannon Franssen from Solidarity St-Henri and Valerie Simard from Le Popir housing committee.
