The P.E.I. Working Group for a Livable Income welcomes the recent motion No. 36 passed in the P.E.I. legislature, putting Basic Income Guarantee back on the government’s agenda.

We believe that the work on Basic Income Guarantee must include a statement of principles, such as that developed for P.E.I. by our working group in consultation with the community.

At this stage, we expect a viable design for Basic Income Guarantee in P.E.I. as a federal-provincial policy and program. P.E.I. is ready to identify preliminary goals, objectives, proposed success indicators and costs.
