Abstract

The dominant paradigms in contemporary Canadian inner-city research have been documenting the influx of well-educated professionals into select inner-city neighbourhoods and the distinctiveness of Canadian cities from their US counterparts. These approaches have ignored the role of structural economic change in producing high levels of unemployment as manufacturing jobs have left the inner city.
