It's Time for a Guaranteed Basic Income

On August 10th, 2020, MP Leah Gazan submitted Motion 46 in the House of Commons, which calls for the CERB to be converted into a permanent Guaranteed Livable Basic Income. The motion comes out of a collaborative effort with Basic Income Manitoba and the Basic Income Canada Network. Read the full text of M-46 here


Over 38,000 Canadians have signed the petition in support of this motion.  Organizations from across the country are rallying behind the motion and campaigning together for a guaranteed livable basic income in Canada.  With a new parliament and a Speech from the Throne expected in the coming weeks, the time to make a guaranteed livable basic income a reality is now.
