Summary

The Quebec housing crisis has only recently attracted significant media attention, but the coverage remains superficial and sporadic. As a result, social media have become the tool for different organizations to exchange and share their knowledge on a variety of tenant-related topics. The podcast project “Un toit, un droit” (One roof, one right) entails the production of a series of eight podcast episodes on the housing sector, with a particular focus on the social and community housing sector. The series will be hosted and produced by tenants of non-profit, low-income and co-op housing, with the support of a coordinator. Knowledge is power: the podcast aims to amplify tenant voices and strengthen the tenancy movement in Montérégie and Estrie, in Quebec, in addition to connecting tenants and elected officials, and raise their awareness to the challenges experienced by tenants as well as the barriers encountered in their community involvement.
