A liveable basic income would help close the gaps by radically simplifying access to income support, so no family has to make impossible choices about putting food on the table or paying bills. And right now, the Senate is considering a bill that if passed, would be a crucial step to making this a reality.

A key group of Senators are reviewing the bill to get it to the next stage. But we’ve heard from our allies that they’re dragging out the process and getting bogged down in technical debate.

Will you call key Senators now to tell them to pass Bill S-233 and establish a basic income framework without delay?

Talking points to include in your message:
  • My name is [YOUR NAME HERE], and I am calling to ask you to prioritize passing Bill S-233 towards a basic income in Canada.
  • Share why you want basic income to become a reality in Canada - maybe you’re worried about your bills and grocery costs going up, or have had to cut back on essential expenses.
  • Basic Income could grow the economy sustainably while lifting 3.2 million families out of poverty and giving a raise to most Canadians. A basic income would ensure dignity for all and strengthen our communities.
  • Making sure you say that you want the Senate committee to progress Bill S-233 to establish a framework for basic income.
