Now is the time
Covid-19 is in full sway, and governments are planning for economic recovery. Now is the time to make a Basic Income Guarantee a reality in Canada.
What can you do?
Please write to your MLA and your MP
When writing to your MLA or MP, please personalize your message by adding that you live in their riding and why you think a basic income is important. Also consider adding any personal experience you’ve had that convinced you that we need a Basic Income Guarantee in Canada. Please send more than one letter. A politician who hears from you more than once learns that this issue is important!

When writing to your MLA please copy your letter to Premier John Horgan (firstname.lastname@example.org), Minister of Finance Selina Robinson (FIN.Minister@gov.bc.ca), and Minister of Social Development and Poverty Reduction Nicholas Simons (SDPR.Minister@gov.bc.ca).
