A man in his fifties who suffered from medical problems and was receiving social assistance benefits asked the MESS to be reimbursed for moving expenses. His request was denied.
The man had lived alone at the same residence for nearly eight years. In January his landlord gave notice that he was reclaiming the man’s apartment to house his ailing father. The man was thus forced to move, but was unable to do so on his own due to back problems and asthma.
The MESS agreed and followed up on the Québec Ombudsman’s request. The man’s moving expenses were reimbursed.
