Where do you Live? Housing Narratives in Toronto
Housing is a concern for many Canadians, as is demonstrated by the 10-year, $40 billion National Housing Strategy announced in November 2017. The razing of subsidized housing projects and replacement with mixed-income, public-private partnership developments has increasingly been used in urban centres like Toronto. This talk will explore Regent Park in terms of its history, narratives, and present-day situation as it is undergoing substantial restructuring.
