Housing is a Human Right
Article 11 of the United Nations International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights states that adequate housing is a fundamental human right;
The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation projects that 60,000 new housing units will need to be built in this province to restore affordability;
Reliance on market mechanisms alone will not result in the construction of the houses needed; and
The public sector therefore must take the lead in restoring housing affordability in this province.
