In the 1960s, on the order of the City of Montreal, this entire neighbourhood was demolished to make room for new urban mega-projects as the city attempted to modernize itself. Today, the Maison Radio-Canada occupies the land where the Faubourg once stood.

So, how did it all happen? What was the story of all 5000 residents of the Faubourg who were evicted, relocated, and moved? 

Join us to find out through a Virtual Reality (VR) experience, run by KnowledgeOne part of eConcordia. In this VR, you can explore an apartment of the Faubourg of the 1960s, historically accurate publications, radio music, television footage, photographs and many other daily life items of the era.

You will also be accompanied by a narration that offers you additional context on the history and final days of the Faubourg before its demolition.

How can you participate? Join us in person.
