What is a Guaranteed Livable Basic Income (GLBI)?

A guaranteed livable basic income (GLBI) is a predictable cash payment provided unconditionally by the government to all individuals in Canada who need it, without requirements to work, seek work, or participate in training or education as currently required by Employment Insurance. Under Bill C-223, a GLBI would be available to all people over 17 years old, across Canada, regardless of citizenship or immigration status.


A GLBI would build on our current social safety net to afford all persons in Canada with respect, dignity, security, and human rights affirmed in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
