UPGo, the Urban Politics and Governance research group at McGill, addresses pressing urban governance problems--particularly those that exceed or challenge city boundaries--with rigorous and publicly-oriented research. Our three research themes are 1) local and regional economic development; 2) urban sustainability; 3) housing policy. UPGo is led by Prof. David Wachsmuth of the School of Urban Planning.

UPGo is launching formally in the fall. But we've been working in the shadows since April, and our first public report (Short-term Cities: Airbnb's Impact on Canadian Housing Markets) is already available!
