Join us for a panel discussion taking place between representatives of community organizations
each actively fighting for housing justice in their neighbourhoods on the Island of Montreal.
The Panelists will be asked to present, based on their experiences working with gentrification
issues in their areas, how they define gentrification, what challenges they have learned from in
the past, and what the greatest issues they face in the future.
Dialogue will be encouraged between panel members, as well as questions from the audience.
Through these anecdotal presentations, there is the expectation that conversations regarding
strategies, common struggles, and a clearer picture of how gentrification struggles look like
on the island of Montreal will emerge. Participating groups on the panel will include :
Olivier Prud’homme (Comité d’Action de Parc-Extension)
Patricia Viannay (P.O.P.I.R)
Jonathan Aspireault-Massé (Comité BAILS).
This event will be free and open to all, with plenty of refreshments and snacks
The presentation will take place in French, will English whisper translation available
