Community groups are urging the City of Montreal and the Legault government to make a commitment to build at least 2,500 housing units in the Côte-des-Neiges district.
In addition to the construction of these housing units in the Blue Bonnets sector on the former site of the racecourse, the authorities are called upon to support the financing of two projects already underway, Bates and Westbury.
The accessible housing situation remains worrying in the neighborhood, with 2,490 households waiting for low-rent housing.
"In the aftermath of July 1, too many households are struggling to find a suitable apartment in the neighborhood and are at risk of homelessness, health problems and violence," said Amira Bensahli, community organizer at Femmes du Monde, an organization community of Côte-des-Neiges.
The Côte-des-Neiges Community Development Corporation, the Social Housing Table and other groups will hold a press conference at 1 p.m. Tuesday.
