Montreal, Thursday, February 27, 2014
The Commission welcomed today the Government’s decision to adopt an national policy on homelessness and the upcoming release of an action plan to address the issue. For more than five years, the Commission has been calling for such a policy that would be based of fundamental rights and freedoms, in particular social and economic rights.

Our brief is an in-depth legal analysis containing more than 100 pages based on our previous opinions founded on Québec, Canadian and international law and on the Commission’s expertise. Our approach is purely legal and above all, is not political. The Commission is not expressing an opinion as to the appropriateness of a secular charter. In the Commission’s view, this bill is a clear setback for human rights and freedoms and is likely to create more opportunities for conflict and disputes in Québec society.
