dc.description.abstract As Canadian cities face change and growth, low-income housing is becoming increasingly difficult to create and to preserve. Research and observation have demonstrated the affordability of living in many inner-city areas is rapidly diminishing, and formerly low-cost forms of tenure commonly found throughout core neighbourhoods are being replaced by more modern, higher-priced units. This practicum investigates the effectiveness of preserving SROs, primarily rooming houses, in the inner-city area of West Broadway, Winnipeg through a planning and policy lens. The research explores the implications of current City of Winnipeg and West Broadway policies and plans alongside the experiences of practitioners. The findings present the strengths and barriers of the selected plans and policies, followed by recommendations for improving efforts to preserve low-income housing in Winnipeg. Further, the practicum identifies areas of inquiry for future research, including potentially useful precedents from other cities. en_US
