Research Paper on the impact of suburbanization on a region’s competitiveness

There is a strong relationship between suburbanization (pejoratively called “urban sprawl”), automobile use and the strong economic growth that has occurred in high-income nations since World War II. Millions of Canadian households were able to stop renting and begin accumulating their own equity as a result of the lower cost houses built on the less expensive land on and beyond the urban fringe. They were able to take advantage of a much larger array of employment and shopping opportunities because they could get anywhere in the metropolitan region in a comparatively short period of time, rather than the limited destinations that could be reached quickly on transit. In short, a world or a Montreal without cars or suburbs would be far less affluent.

Une Note économique rendue publique aujourd’hui par l’Institut économique de Montréal (IEDM) démontre que les explications avancées par les activistes du logement social quant aux causes de la crise du logement ne tiennent pas la route. Intitulée Quelques mythes sur les causes de la crise du logement, l’étude produite par le directeur de la recherche à l’IEDM, M. Pierre Desrochers, conclut que l’abolition de la réglementation excessive qui étouffe le marché locatif est la seule façon de mettre fin à la crise du logement.

Selon le directeur de la recherche de l’Institut économique de Montréal, M. Pierre Desrochers, «le Rapport sur le logement locatif publié aujourd’hui par la Société canadienne d’hypothèque et de logement illustre encore une fois la nécessité pour le gouvernement du Québec de déréglementer rapidement le marché du logement locatif».

Research Paper (in French with a bilingual executive summary) on the causes of the housing crisis in Quebec and solutions to solve it

If we analyze the housing crisis that has plagued Quebec since 2001 through the lenses of economic science, it can be attributed to a number of government policies that have distorted the proper workings of the province's housing market. Among other factors, rent control has discouraged the maintenance of existing units and the building of new ones. Quebec's housing regulations also throw numerous roadblocks in the way of tenant selection and the eviction of the worst tenants, which makes investment in housing less attractive.
