SFU Urban Studies Program presenting David Hulchanski and Dr. Chow Yei Ching,

The SFU Urban Studies Program presents the following talk as part of our Gentrification and the City speaker series:

Gentrification and the future of rental housing in Canada

David Hulchanski
Dr. Chow Yei Ching Chair in Housing, Faculty of Social Work, University of Toronto

Canada’s increasing income inequality is speeding up the social-spatial “sorting” of who loves where in our cities with the almost sole criterion being money. Money buys choice, including choice of neighbourhood. The more money, the more choice. With huge income disparities not only are people with little choice being displaced, but existing rental housing in many neighbourhoods is also under threat.
