Canadian youth, have your say on basic income

Calling all high school students. Do you have something to say about basic income? We have an exciting opportunity! The 2024 Basic Income Forum is hosting two contests just for you.

Young people are often left out of discussions and decisions about economics, poverty and fairness.

But we face a lot of economic challenges. For example, the collective Canadian student debt of $23.5 billion in student loans as of July 2022, or the fact that young people are more likely working unstable and underpaid jobs.

Knowing this, and experiencing it ourselves, we think it’s time for young voices to be heard in conversations that affect our future.

This is why we joined the Basic Income Canada Youth Network, a group of young people from across the country advocating for a basic income.
