We the undersigned,

Call on the Federal Government of Canada to:

  • Dedicate research into a Guaranteed Basic Income Strategy
  • Implement a set of national standards 
  • Create a national strategy that benefits all Canadians

A Guaranteed Basic Income Strategy in Canada will:

  1. Address income inequality which threatens our democracy.
  2. Create a floor for lower income earners to stand on while maintaining a sense of dignity.
  3. Reduce income inequality exacerbated by the recent pandemic

"...A UBI would, in essence, lop off the bottom of the psychologist Abraham Maslow's 'hierarchy of needs', where air, food, water, and shelter reside, with self-transcendence up at the other end. A UBI would give people the economic bandwidth to do what they wanted with their lives..." - Annie Lowery
