September 30 Webinar – Basic Income: Giving Canadians a Solid Floor to Stand On

Community Food Centres Canada is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, September 30 from noon to 1pm called Basic Income: Giving Canadians a Solid Floor to Stand On. 

This free webinar will explore basic income as a solution to poverty and food insecurity. It will outline how guaranteeing a basic income for all would greatly reduce the number of Canadians experiencing food insecurity and, more importantly, offer a more dignified social safety net that ensures no one falls below a certain income level.

The webinar will include two panelists who are leading the charge for basic income:

  • Hugh Segal has been advocating for basic income through his many political posts, as an author, and as an academic.
  • Dr. Andrew Pinto hails from the Centre for Inner City Health at St. Michael’s Hospital and is researching the effects of boosting incomes of low-income and marginalized patients.
