Basic Income Canada Network (BICN) is a unique national organization dedicated to ensuring everyone can meet basic needs and live with dignity.
We reflect varied perspectives because there are many reasons for a basic income. At the same time, we are geared towards feasible policy solutions that make sense for Canada. We are respected leaders in shaping the public awareness and conversations that will get us there.
We work alongside the growing number of individuals and groups within the wider basic income movement, many of them in our supporter and donor base, and with allies that have related interests and mandates.
We are a catalyst for new activity and a trusted resource for anyone wanting to learn more, to be part of this effort, or to have an informed say about a critical societal and economic issue.
Founded in 2008, BICN is a registered non-profit, non-partisan organization. Our board of directors come from all walks of life and a circle of advisors adds even more diversity of expertise and ideas. As an affiliate of the international Basic Income Earth Network, we are connected to networks of people around the world as well as across Canada.
