The City of Gatineau is offering grants to families and first-time home-buyers to get them to buy property and live in downtown Hull, in another bid to revitalize the downtown core.
More than three-quarters of downtown Hull's residents are renters, according to the city.
"It's the social mix. You need a bit of everything to make an environment representative but also a vibrant community," said Myriam Nadeau, a city councillor and the chair of its housing committee.http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/gatineau-pay-people-hull-1.3976522
