UBI Works

2021 was a breakthrough year for basic income.

Among the achievements in our movement this past year: Canada’s first 2 bills for basic income ever in history, unprecedented mainstream media coverage, multi-city Basic Income Marches, a Federal MP Candidates pledge for Basic Income with signers in nearly half of all ridings, and a record number of basic income champions elected to parliament.
