Jay Pitter grew up in Toronto’s social housing and became an author and international placemaker. Over a year, she travelled across Canada to document the insights, struggles and resilience of people on the front lines of the nation’s housing crisis. These narratives will be chronicled in her forthcoming book Where We Live, to be published by McClelland & Stewart at Penguin Random House. In this series, in a format different from her book, she shares five insightful conversations.
