Action Needed Now for GLI

Vote to send S-233 to Committee

Senator Colin Deacon, a respected business leader and supporter of Basic Income, recently gave a powerful speech in the Senate on why S-233 should be brought to Committee. Click here to watch it.

Back in December 2021, two bills for a Guaranteed Livable Basic Income in Canada were introduced in Parliament: Bill S-233 by Senator Kim Pate and C-223 by MP Leah Gazan.

Recently, in its second reading, the bill was actively debated. Soon, our senators will vote on whether to take the bill to the next step – sending it to Committee – where experts would be brought in to testify and evidence showing that Basic Income works would be presented to Parliament.

This is a pivotal moment for Basic Income in Canada. Urge the senators to vote to send S-233 to Committee. We need your help to contact your senators. It only takes a few seconds. Let them know of the importance of this bill, and its meaning to you.
