The government is looking for feedback as it designs a new basic income pilot project. This pilot project is meant to test whether or not a basic income is a more effective way of lifting people out of poverty than the province’s current social security infrastructure. The government is specifically looking for feedback from those with lived experience with poverty, experts, academics, and municipalities. Those interested in participating in the design of this pilot project can do so in the following ways:
- Completing an online survey
- Attending in-person meetings being held across the province
- Submitting formal comments on the Basic Income Pilot Consultation Guide
More information on this consultation can be found here.
