The Belongings of Precariously Housed People
Centre for the Law and the Environment Assistant
Nov 4, 2023
On November 2, 2023, the Centre for Law and the Environment held a launch event for the report "Possessions of Precariously Housed People".
Unhoused and precariously housed people must continuously navigate various public and private spaces, including sidewalks, parks, shelters, transitional housing, storage facilities, rooming houses, single-room accommodations, and insecure rental housing. Their belongings are vulnerable to the rules set for each of these regulators. This event will launch a new report that compiles and analyses the multiple laws and regulations that govern people and their personal property. It details how these rules result in the seizure and destruction of belongings, almost always without remedies.
