The provincial government is moving forward on creating a basic income pilot program.What is a “basic income”? And what could it mean for people on social assistance?
Join us for a webinar that explores some of the reasons people support a basic income program, some of the benefits, risks, and opportunities that it could bring, and the 6 key questions that people on social assistance and their allies should ask when examining a proposal for a basic income program.
Friday, October 14 – 11am-12:30pm
The provincial government will be releasing a report from Hugh Segal, the Special Advisor on Basic Income, in mid-October. They will also be asking for input and debate on the recommendations in his report. We hope that the issues raised in this webinar will help you prepare for that process.
The webinar is hosted by ISAC and CLEO’s Your Legal Rights.
