As a researcher, Cheryl-lee Madden publishes a range of articles, blog posts, and opinion pieces on a wide variety of topics, including Vancouver’s real estate market, people and places, sustainability, environment and society, housing affordability, social reproduction, capacity building, and the consequences of gentrification. Our publications also examine Vancouver’s rent gap and housing crisis, people versus profits, the many different aspects of sweat equity, renters and creative resilience, livable cities, land ownership, the displacement of people with low incomes from certain communities, and the creation of affordable housing solutions. MMC also provides reviews of existing human-urban geography literature and articles related to Vancouver and other areas of British Columbia.
MMC’s written reports expand the reach of charitable organizations, amplifying their voice and providing them with great visibility. We also connect these associations with important companies and civic groups that are committed to providing the funding support necessary for crucial projects. A recent example of an initiative designed to counter 1960s urban renewal Black community erasure is the Hogan’s Alley Society Report to Vancouver City Hall, making a case for an 898 Main Street Cultural Centre.
