Project Summary

What inhibits the development of tenant leadership in a region? During a 2019 tour and a Community Support Forum organized in Chaudière-Appalaches, Quebec, tenants living in non-profit or co-op dwellings or low-rental housing pointed, among other things, to feeling isolated, lacking support and opportunities for networking or learning, and the sense there was little real recognition of their contribution to the community.

To respond to these challenges, Projet CLIC: Citoyens-locataires impliqués et concertés en Chaudière-Appalaches* aims to create a network of mutual assistance, knowledge-sharing and skills development between tenants, which will also consider realities of the region, which includes both rural and urban settings. The Centre grant of $49,900 will go to assist and better equip tenants who are, or who want to become, leaders in their community. One hundred tenants will be directly involved in the project. But, since it is regional in scope, CLIC could also touch tenant leaders living in the region’s 3,304 low-cost housing lodgings, 2,052 non-profit units and 779 co-op homes, for a potential reach of 6,135 households.
