2. Tell your MP that Basic Income can grow Canada's economy while ending poverty
A 2020 report by the Canadian Centre for Economic Analysis (CANCEA) showed that a national basic income could grow Canada's economy $80B/year, create 600K jobs, and raise wages for workers by 2.6%, while lifting 3.2M families out of poverty — ending poverty. See highlights of this report and share the results with your MP today.
We've also created social media graphics and videos that you can share. You can find a library of them here to download and share..
