CityLife

Saison 9

2. Affordable Rents

TV BROADCAST:
Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m.

Montreal's vacancy rate has plummeted to historic lows in recent years. And at the same time, housing prices have soared along with rents. It's all resulted in a housing crunch with more and more people unable to find affordable housing on the island. Is this a fundamental change in the city, or can something be done to reverse the trend? We ask people directly involved in the issue why things have changed so much, and what the future may hold for Montreal families.

Guest(s) : Guillaume Hébert, IRIS Researcher Ethan Cox, Editor, Ricochet.media Nakuset, Director of the Native Women's Shelter of Montreal Hans Brouillette, CORPIQ Director of Public Affairs
