New Brunswick’s housing issue worsens: Landlords need to respect human rights

Phylomene Zangio, chair of the New Brunswick Human Rights Commission, expresses concern over increasing allegations of housing discrimination in the province.

Landlords are reminded of their legal obligation to respect the Human Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination based on race, ancestry, or family status. Increasing incidents involve discrimination against families with children and individuals with service animals.

Practices like advertising "adults only" buildings or denying accommodation to tenants with service animals breach the act. Housing complaints rose from 4% to 13% of total complaints in 2022-23, indicating a concern for housing rights.

Landlords are urged to understand their human rights obligations, and tenants are encouraged to know their rights and responsibilities for fair rental relationships.

Nova Scotia stopped accepting applications in the Accommodation and Food Services sector

As of April 17, 2024, the Nova Scotia Provincial Nominee Program (NSPNP) has temporarily stopped accepting new applications in the Accommodation and Food Services sector.

The NSPNP, which offers opportunities for workers in this industry to move to the province through various streams like the Skilled Worker, Nova Scotia Experience: Express Entry, and Occupations in Demand, has seen a significant surge of applications in this sector.

This temporary pause is meant to help the NSPNP handle the existing applications pile.

This move aims to ensure every application gets the due attention and keep the process efficient and reliable.

Many temporary Canadian residents facing work permit expiry struggle to gain permanent residency

In Canada, temporary residents with expiring work permits face challenges in gaining permanent residence due to the federal government's scoring system.

Attributes like age, education, and language proficiency earn points, but recent prioritization has disadvantaged higher-scoring candidates.

This has led to some resorting to dubious means to secure job offers for points. Peter Veress, an immigration consultant, highlighted the increasing misuse of Labour Market Impact Assessments (LMIAs) as proof of arranged employment in immigration applications.

Amid a housing crisis, Employment Minister Randy Boissonnault acknowledged this issue and pledged to address the misuse of the temporary foreign worker program.
