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.
