The Parc-Extension Anti-Eviction Mapping Project (PEAMP) and the Comité d’action de Parc-Extension (CAPE) are launching two interactive maps to highlight the evolution of evictions in Parc-Extension over the past four years, as well as the community initiatives and struggles that seek to counter the gentrification of the neighbourhood and to propose solutions adapted to the needs and aspirations of residents. As the housing crisis deepens in Montreal, documenting its magnitude and consequences, as well as the strategies and projects that are being put forward to address it, is more urgent than ever.
