Policy in a Pub: Thinking About Basic Income

October 20, 2016 | By |

Is a basic income good public policy? If so, how should it be delivered, and to whom?

The idea of a basic income for Canadians has grown in popularity across the political spectrum, with supporters and detractors on each side. Now, Ontario has announced that it will implement a basic income pilot to test the concept. But what do policy experts think? Is a basic income good public policy? If so, how should it be delivered, and to whom? Join us for a lively discussion on the pros and cons of a basic income for Ontario.

The community of people working on public policy issues in the GTA extends far beyond Queen’s Park or City Hall. The Mowat Centre is committed to connecting professionals from across the broader public policy community by bringing together people from the public, private, non-profit, academic and media sectors. On October 20th, we will be hosting the next installment in our Policy in a Pub series to hear from each other and exchange ideas in an informal setting – this time featuring a conversation on the merits of implementing a basic income in Ontario.
