Brick by Brick is a community housing project and social center that is being built in Parc Extension to meet the needs of its diverse residents.
Starting in the summer of 2018, Brick by Brick will offer affordable well-maintained apartments as well as shared space where activities can be made accessible to the community at large.
Brick by Brick issues community bonds to finance community housing. These bonds generate a steady revenue for investors and offset the negative impact of gentrification by building accessible housing for low-income tenants.
Each bond you buy helps to finance a building that will:
- Provide affordable housing, accessible creative facilities, childcare and food security.
- Bring together a diversity of people who face systemic discrimination in a supportive environment that facilitates personal growth.
- Engage residents in Brick by Brick management and offer training to ensure their success.
After your bond matures, you get back whatever you put in, plus interest.
This public assembly offers the opportunity for Parc-Extension residents to express on what they consider important in the fight for the right to housing in the neighborhood. Organized by the Comité d'Action Parc Extension.
