Do we still need a basic income guarantee in Canada?
May 30, 2017 | Evelyn L. Forget
As provinces across Canada continue to debate and discuss basic income guarantee (B.I.G.), the second report of Northern Policy Institute’s B.I.G. series reflects back on Manitoba’s Mincome experiment to argue that, if well designed, a B.I.G. can deliver a range of benefits at a feasible cost to Canadians.
This paper is the second of a series that explores the various topics presented at NPI’s Basic Income Guarantee conference in October 2016.
