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.

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.
