Make Poverty History Manitoba

The COVID-19 pandemic has so clearly exposed the long-standing pervasiveness and severity of poverty in Canada. Now is the time for comprehensive measures to help end poverty in Canada and Manitoba.

Make Poverty History Manitoba supports Motion 46's Guaranteed Livable Basic Income plan especially considering its basis within a system of strong public services, social housing & other income supports and its expanded inclusion of refugee claimants, temporary foreign workers, and other non-citizens. This motion, if enacted, would be a gamechanger for eradicating poverty.
