With a shrinking middle-class, increasing automation, and full-time employment becoming harder to find, we need an income solution for the future. That solution is Basic Income, and you can help to make it a reality. 

what's basic income?

Basic income is an approach to economic security supported across the political spectrum. It provides a guaranteed level of income to cover basic needs, protecting a shrinking middle-class and providing a real alternative to our trapping welfare cycle.

If it sounds like a new idea, it's really not. This is something we already do in Canada through Guaranteed

Income Supplement for seniors and the Child Tax Benefit for parents. It's been a massive success for decades in supporting seniors and families with children with incredible benefits to the economy and communities.

 

There is every reason to expect it can work well for other Canadians as well, far better than demeaning and stingy social assistance programs, or forcing those precariously employed to bear all the risk of life’s ups and downs on their own.

 

 

Hamilton animator Adam Gaudreau-Brown's awesome 3 minute video is a great summary of what Basic Income is, and why we need it in Ontario and Canada:
