ON Elections Advocacy for Basic Income

BICN along with other collaborators are unitedly forwarding the Basic Income Agenda as we move towards the Ontario Election on June 2nd.

Join us in lending your support. Here are some of the actions that you can take in your ridings:

On Now! The BIG Conference 2022

It’s Time to Get BIG: The Stats, the Stories, The Steps

The only annual basic income guarantee conference in North America is getting a new name: The BIG Conference.

There is great Canadian content throughout, with special sessions on virtual day on June 25. Registration lets you attend any session you want while it’s happening (June 23-25) and/or watch the recorded version later – so it’s a fabulous deal.

Take this incredible opportunity to come together to focus on the issues that matter enormously to everyone and that can only strengthen the basic income movement in Canada!

See the french video here. Join us to make Basic Income a call that cannot be ignored this election.

It’s time for a basic income


A better, fairer Canada that works for everyone. A future where people can meet their basic needs and live with dignity.

It’s what we all want. And I truly believe it’s within our reach, with your help. We’ve seen how quickly people can turn their life around for the better when a basic income is introduced.

What Is Basic Income?

A basic income guarantee could completely change the way you make decisions and live your life.


Basic income movements are happening on local, provincial/territorial, national and international levels.


We’ve developed resources to support informed action by all Canadians.

Groundbreaking report shows how Canada could fund a basic income

As the need for basic income grows, we are often asked how Canada could best design and pay for it. To answer that, we asked a team to model some fair, effective and feasible options. Our report, Basic Income: Some Policy Options for Canada does just that.

what we stand for

We want a basic income implemented in Canada, one that is grounded in principles of universality, adequacy, non-conditionality, autonomy, dignity, and economic and gender equality, and that works in synergy with public services. We stand with people in Canada calling on their governments to make basic income a reality.
