The Purpose of this Website is to further the development of a true Basic Income movement in Canada. Basic Income is the current term for the idea of not just eliminating poverty in society but promoting equity, by simply giving everyone enough money to live a dignified life. Right now there is no real movement to acheive this in Canada.
There is a public debate but it is guided by goverment interests. It is going away from the original principles of a Basic Income. These are, that it must be Universal, Adequate, and Livable.
Further, it should not be seen merely as 'poverty releif' but as a means of acheiving equity in society. Thus it simply cannot be framed as a 'Negative Income Tax'. A Basic Income means a Demogrant; a direct payment to all.
