Gatineau paying people to buy homes and live in downtown Hull - Ottawa - CBC News

By Kate Porter, CBC News Ottawa, February 10, 2017

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.
