Canadian government will never face court over housing affordability

The Right to Housing Charter Coalition’s bid to bring the government to court, to answer the argument that affordable housing is a human right and ultimately to implement a provincial and national housing strategy, has been rejected by the Supreme Court.

The coalition had hoped that the Court would overturn a previous ruling from lower courts that the issue of housing affordability should not be a courtroom matter.

"The housing and homelessness crisis is directly related to policy decisions that governments make every day," said Alex Neve, secretary general of Amnesty International Canada, one of sixteen organizations that intervened in the case.
