This is the first in a series of occasional bulletins that focus on issues highlighted in the Hamilton’s Social
Landscape report and bring attention to more recent trends.
This report is based in part on research from “The Right to Choose Where to Live: Challenging the radial separation by-law and perceptions of supportive and supported housing in Hamilton”. Meng (Dolly) Lin, a McMaster University Health Sciences student, completed a study on Hamilton’s radial separation bylaw and perception of supportive housing in Hamilton. During the course of her research, Ms. Lin and Mohawk College student Veronic Sanyaolu interviewed neighbours, residents and staff members of supportive housing facilities.Funded by: Affordability and Choice Today (ACT), Ontario Trillium Foundation, United Way of Burlington & Greater Hamilton Community Partner: Affordable Housing Flagship
