The second section of Ontario Housing code, the right towards equally treating people has been recognized with regard to the accommodation occupancy allowing for a right that can be interpreted under global Canadian covenants (Skelton, I., and Cooper, S., 2011). These covenants have either been signed or ratified by Canada. According to CERA, application of an approach with substantive equality, second section tries to interpret protection against treatment of discriminatory manner when applying to live in a house (Skelton, I., and Cooper, S., 2011). The second section also illustrates a right towards adequate houses without any kind of discrimination over the grounds.According to CERA, such interpretation helps in ensuring effective remedies to violations of right towards adequate housing. This happens under the housing international law obligations. It is the position of commission that several of these issues in rental houses and their access are systemic human right violation symptoms. This further implies a prevalence of inadequate awareness which can and should be addressed without waiting. A range of tools are provided by the code for addressing housing rights violations and circumstances influencing access towards houses because of grounds in the code, even when the second question does not create explicitly housing based freestanding rights. Code’s section 9 prohibits rights based direct and indirect infringement in Code’s first part inclusive of second section (Skelton, I., and Cooper, S., 2011). This implies that applications should be filed and Code’s violations need to be searched for, wherein actions are violated in section 2 indirectly. For example a leader can politically make a phrase depending upon the stereotypes of discrimination that consequently leads towards access denial for houses for a group of individuals or an individual due to the ground of the code.
Additionally, 11th section helps in providing that a right within the 1st part of this code may have infringement wherein individuals are identified through the ground in the code being excluded due to the neutral requirements which are not bona-fide or reasonable with regard to a specific situation. Such determination needs a consideration on whether the groups’ requirements can be accommodated without hardships of undue nature (Skelton, I., and Cooper, S., 2011). This implies that applications need to be filed against a wide responding parties range inclusive of providers of houses and governments depending upon section 2, 9 and 11 combinations. Applications, for example should further be filed in opposition to the government wherein allowances of shelter are so less that individuals waiting for assistance of social nature are not able to find housing of affordable nature (Skelton, I., and Cooper, S., 2011). It is possible to argue that this indicates a violation to have taken place to the Code’s first section prohibiting services discrimination. Arguments similarly can be made that it is possible to violate section 2 when services denial through a provider of support service leads towards a loss of house for the person as they are seen as not having the ability of living in an independent way. Such types of situations have given rise to the serious issues of human rights that need to be considered.
It is not evident that Ontario, Canada has taken any steps for understanding the right to appropriate housing within legislation after the report on Special Rapporteur. There have been, however, advancements of positive nature that can lead towards indicating a transition in process. There are several options available at the forefront of Ontario with regard to bringing forward a key change in its housing initiatives. First, there is a requirement to make housing options cost effective. Cost effectiveness should be evident in providing housing of accessible, affordable and adequate nature (Skelton, I., and Cooper, S., 2011). This will in turn lead towards being cost effectiveness to be sustainable and foster. It is essential that a national housing initiative be applied in order to build strong relationships between houses and sectors of health care. This is because it will lead towards a measure that has logic and offers cost effectiveness. Support of housing will further help in creating community and stability, connecting to people with care and helping in mitigation of risk factors.
