Making Megaprojects Work for Communities

 

Making Megaprojects Work for Communities is an action-research project seeking to understand how new, large-scale public facilities, or "megaprojects", can impact communities and the city at large. Research focuses on the relationship between the new McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) Glen Campus Superhospital and the surrounding neighbourhoods in the Notre-Dame-de-Grace and Saint-Henri districts and the City of Westmount.

This project is a collaboration between several communities groups and a multi-disciplinary team of researchers from several local universities.

The project is supported by the Community-University Research Alliance (CURA) program of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada(SSHRC).
