A new report, Potential Economic Impacts and Reach of Basic Income Programs, finds that Basic Income could be both a wide-reaching poverty reduction strategy as well as a new framework for economic prosperity for Canadians living and working in a rapidly changing context.
This webinar features a discussion on how a national Basic Income could be a sustainable investment that lifts 3.2 Million Canadians out of poverty, increases disposable income for lower-wage workers, creates new jobs, and adds to businesses’ bottom line. Economist, Brett House, and Basic Income advocate, Floyd Marinescu join CANCEA’s CEO, Paul Smetanin, to explore the study that his company undertook in 2020.
