Basic Income?

The Province of Ontario is considering the implementation of a pilot program for Basic Income, also known as Guaranteed Income.

guaranteedBasic Income is an unconditional, guaranteed payment that is provided by the government to ensure that citizens have a minimum income.

It is believed that Basic Income could provide a simpler and more effective support system for citizens – improving health, education and employment outcomes for people and communities.

New ways are being explored to support Ontario
residents. Although current income supports are in place in Ontario, many residents are still living in poverty.

The Government is currently looking at the design, implementation and evaluation of a pilot program in Ontario.

Take a look at Ontario’s video about Basic Income.
