LRT Corridor

The construction of the Light Rail Transit line will change many parts of the City of Hamilton. We are conducting interviews to learn how people who reside along the route feel they are affected by the changes.

We are looking for people who live up to 1km from the proposed LRT line. We want to understand how your neighbourhood is changing, even before construction of the LRT has started. This information will help planners, policymakers and non-profits develop strategies to create inclusive communities along the LRT route.

While we want to hear your stories, knowledge and experiences of changes in your neighbourhood, your name will be kept confidential.

This study has been reviewed and received ethics clearance through a University of Waterloo Research Ethics Board.


Notice: We are no longer looking for participants to take part in our research about change along Hamilton's LRT corridor.
