Julie Dzrerowicz, the Liberal MP for Davenport, will have her first hour of second reading for Bill C-273 this Monday, June 14th. You can watch the debate through CPAC.
Bill C-273 requires Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland to create a national strategy for a Guaranteed Basic Income, including potential partnerships with provinces to determine how best to structure and implement a Basic Income.
The bill includes support for dedicated Basic Income research into: how it would affect the efficiency of government; how it could support entrepreneurship, job creation, and civic action in a new economy; and how it would impact Canadians and our communities.
