2015 Ethnic Retail Neighbourhoods

This workshop generated discussion from academics and practitioners about the ethnic retail phenomenon and its impact on neighbourhoods. Ethnic neighbourhoods in the Toronto area are not only indicators of Canada’s ethno-cultural diversity, but also major social places where ethnic businesses are operated and generate long-lasting physical imprints on urban landscapes. These neighbourhoods are increasingly seen as an asset for city branding purposes.
