CHAPTER TEN
Inner-City Revitalization in Canada: A Vancouver Case Study

DAVID LEY

While the inner-city question provided a major emphasis of American and British research and public policy during the 1970s, it has received relatively little attention in Canada, either from government or from the research community.

In this paper three related questions will be addressed concerning revitalization processes in the Canadian inner city. First, using national data from the 1976 census, general population patterns in the inner city will be assessed. Second, narrowing the focus to the Vancouver housing market, the contexts of inner-area revitalization will be considered. Third, the effects of revitalization will be examined, with particular reference to the demolition or conversion of modestly priced housing and the attendant displacement of existing residents in the Kitsilano neighborhood in Vancouver's inner city. Responses to change, both from neighborhood groups and from different levels of government, will be discussed in the context of the development of public policy.
