Milton-Parc : How we did it

Special event, in English, Paul Desmarais Theatre, September 2018, 5:30pm

Between 1958 and 1968 a developer quietly purchased most of the properties in Montreal’s Milton-Parc, with the aim of a redeveloping this downtown, working-class neighbourhood. In November 1968, residents formed the Milton-Parc Citizens Committee to organize against the possibility of eviction, thereby forming the largest cooperative housing project on a land trust in North America, which today is home to over 1500 citizens. The Committee organized a demonstration in May 1972, resulting in the arrest of fifty-nine protesters and galvanizing resistance to the redevelopment project.

Join us for an evening of conversation with citizens who participated in this action. The event will begin at 6:30pm, before which guests are welcome to have a drink and browse the new hallcase exhibition Milton Parc: How we did it.
