Toronto's Growing Spatial Divide: An Update on the "Three Cities in Toronto" Trend, 1970-2012


Social Work

David Hulchanski (Professor, Housing & Community Development, University of Toronto)

Talk description:

Income and wealth inequality are changing our cities in terms of who lives where by socio-economic and ethno-cultural status. This is creating new socio-spatial patterns of segregation.

This talk will outline: 

  • How Canada compares with other similar nations in terms of income inequality;

  • What the updated neighbourhood change trends are in Toronto; and

  • How trends in Toronto compare with those in Montreal, Calgary, Vancouver and Chicago.
