Basic Income Guarantee (BIG), as a public policy and program, is designed to respond to the belief that all people have the collective right to an income which allows them to live in good health and with dignity.

The PEI Working Group for a Livable Income works on Basic Income Guarantee (BIG) as its central long-term program. Our work has involved consultations with the PEI Community, lobbying public decision-makers and maintaining contact with the national movements for Basic Income Guarantee. Meanwhile we give close attention to the many ongoing conditions of low income in Prince Edward Island.
