What are the socio-economic and ethno-cultural trends polarizing Canada’s major urban areas?
How have communities elsewhere responded?
What can we learn from these responses?
Professors Ley and Rose will compare trends in Vancouver and Montréal with Toronto; Professors Smith and van Ham will report potential lessons from Chicago and major European cities.
This event is part of the launch of a new multi-year research partnership funded by the
Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, based at the University of Toronto,
focused on neighbourhood inequality trends in six Canadian metropolitan areas,
their implications and possible interventions.
