Report on women and housing in Montreal

The image is a series of row houses inhabited by a diverse community of women. Icons are placed underneath the image to indicate the desire for a welcoming, safe, universally accessible, affordable and healthy living environment.

The right to housing is a major concern for Montreal women's groups. For this reason, the Table des groupes de femmes de Montréal (TGFM) published an initial report on the subject in 2019. The COVID-19 pandemic and the housing crisis motivated us to update that report. Over the past year, we surveyed 59 women's groups and mixed-gender organizations through a questionnaire, focus groups and one-on-one meetings and analysed a series of documents. This report focuses on three themes used to explore issues that limit women's right to housing in Montreal and the actions undertaken by grassroots organizations. The report provides concrete recommendations and resources that allow for further reading.
