Halifax's kind‑of‑illegal rooming houses

Posted by SOSA Webteam on September 11, 2017 in News

Student apartments in Halifax are often affordable despite being sketchy, crowded, and messy. But did you know that in some cases, they may also be kind of illegal? PLANifax, an award-winning young company that makes videos about local issues to spur citizen engagement, has just released a new video about rooming houses based on research conducted by Bachelor of Community Design Honours graduate Uytae Lee within the pan-Canadian Neighbourhood Change Research Partnership (NCRP). SOSA anthropologist Dr. Martha Radice and sociologist Dr. Howard Ramos, along with Dr. Jill Grant and Dr. Ren Thomas of Dalhousie's School of Planning, are part of the Halifax NCRP team that initiated Lee's study.
