Diversified and accessible housing​

to maintain a social mix​

habitation

Housing is both an essential component of the living environment and a privileged tool for social inclusion. For an appropriately housed person, home represents a foundation, the basis of their personal and social development, and of their feeling of belonging to a community. As we are living through a major housing crisis, Montréal and its neighbourhoods must act quickly so that housing does not become a place of instability, insecurity, isolation, and exclusion for anyone who has difficulty finding housing.

Our commitment

Achieve an inclusive and accessible city that takes into account the diverse aspirations and needs of all Montrealers.
