Title : Merchants Corner
Description : The Selkirk Avenue Education Hub already includes some outstanding educational initiatives aimed at moving low-income people into post-secondary education and through to graduation. These include UM’s Inner City Social Work Program, Urban Circle Training Centre and UW’s Department of Urban and Inner-City Studies. The next step is the redevelopment of the old Merchants Hotel into Merchants Corner. Seven city lots will be redeveloped to include 30 units of student housing plus three classrooms and community space. Some innovative educational initiatives will be part of this project. This session will describe the educational initiatives that will be part of Merchants Corner, and place them in the context of Winnipeg’s North End.
