Basic Income Canada Network / Réseau canadien pour le revenu garanti is composed of Canadians interested in promoting dialogue around basic income.
BICN’s vision is that by eliminating poverty, wellbeing for all Canadians is secured.
If a basic income is implemented then we predict the result will be that the well-being of all Canadians would improve, poverty would be drastically reduced, even eliminated, and the social justice problems associated with disparity will be significantly diminished.
BICN is composed of individuals who believe that guaranteed income could be a positive alternative to our current collection of income security programs.
We provide information on Basic Income, promote the idea, and advocate with the public and policy makers about policy to support a basic income.
A basic income is a minimum income that is able to pay for the necessities of life such as food, clothing, and shelter; which all people receive without condition, means test or other requirements.
