Canada is signatory to International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights which does recongise housing as right and early in his first term Trudau affirmed the commitment (even if it's not in constitutional right).

I think it becomes a murkier issue what 'housing' is. Is it the right to live within four walls and not on the street or being able to afford a four bedroom house and den within an hours drive of a major city?

Itís not a right unless itís in law and been upheld by courts.  Trudeau signing something may be aspirational, but itís  not a right. 

Clearly, no one has any right to a home in Canada.  If youíre homeless, there may be shelters and such, but the government isnít even obligated to house you in any way.
