At the beginning of June the City of Montreal made public an emergency number that can be used by low-income families in need of home as the 1st of July Moving Day is approaching. Whereas some families do indeed qualify to be helped and given home, many households happen not to fall under the definition of a “family”, for example people living by themselves or temporarily homeless people. The program has been running for a few years having helped 26 families last year, and is expected to be even more successful in helping low-income families this summer.
CKUT’s Kateryna Gordiychuk interviewed Émilie Joly from FRAPRU (Front d’Action Populaire en Réaménagement Urbain) to get the organization’s opinion on housing rights and the City’s program in general.
