Join a two-day conference that brings together researchers, community groups and activists interested in progressive planning.

In cities throughout Canada and the world, people are facing powerful economic and political forces that lead to evictions from their homes and displacement from their communities. In response, people are organizing, resisting and developing their own plans and policies as alternatives. Join Planners Network-Montreal as we explore strategies and affirm that another world is possible!
