Is gentrification a good or bad thing? Many of us would probably say, it’s complicated. Massive growth in any community creates exciting possibilities. It also raises important questions. How does gentrification affect programs and services? What does that mean for people who live, work or access supports in that community?
These are some of the questions we’ll explore as we go on a guided walking tour of downtown Kitchener with Christian Snyder, Community Ambassador at Smile.io, John Neufeld, Executive Director at House of Friendship, and Nancy Bird, Senior Director of Community Investment at United Way Waterloo Region Communities.
When: 5:30 - 7:00 PM on Wednesday, August 22, 2018
