The foundation of a sustainable economy and healthier society for everyone
Inequality and poverty soared during the pandemic, showing that our patchwork of programs is unfair and leaves too many behind. Canada must do better.
Income guarantees for seniors and parents already exist. They’ve been proven to strengthen people, communities, and the economy. CERB’s rapid cash was a lifeline for individuals and the country. A permanent basic income will work even better.
Canada has enough to make sure everyone has enough. The status quo harms people…and costs billions. Basic income is a sound investment in people with pay-offs in better health, social justice, the green transition, caring, creativity, education, entrepreneurship and innovation.
