M4MP May Resources


The CSU’s Off-Campus Housing and Job Resource Centre is your resource for housing issues and workers’ rights. We provide legal information to students and members of the Concordia community, offer a classifieds website to find work and housing, and give workshops across campus and in the community. Due to COVID-19, we are working remotely until Concordia University reopens. Please email us at hojo@csu.qc.ca to book an appointment and we’ll gladly help you from there! HOJO has a series of annual campaigns on themes such as job and apartment search tools, rental increases, and tenant’s rights. You can also learn a lot about renting in Montreal from our web resource likehome.info, which features an interactive map showing many Montreal neighborhoods and their average apartment rental prices—a perfect apartment hunting tool! The site provides an overview of your legal rights and responsibilities as a tenant, too, to prepare you for anything that may happen before, during and after your stay.
