The Government of Ontario has released a report that summarizes the feedback it received on how to design a basic income pilot project. According to the government, more than 35,000 people and organizations participated in the consultations. The bulk of the information received by the government suggests that it should design the program along the following criteria:
- That it includes Ontario residents aged 18-64 living in socially and economically diverse communities, in urban, rural and northern locations
- That it helps people living on low incomes meet their basic needs
- That it lifts people out of poverty, with long-term improvements in health, employment and housing
