De-gentrify Ontario

Founded in 2017, Groundstory / Histoire de Terrain is a collective impact effort with a mandate to uproot the adverse effects of gentrification on the arts and other vulnerable, low-income groups in Ontario.

Over the coming decade, Groundstory will bolster cross-sectoral responses to three systemic issues, including:

  • Deepening income precarity and inequality
  • Increasing lack of affordable shelter and spaces of work
  • Growing socio-spatial displacement of vulnerable workers from rapidly densifying neighbourhoods
