Petition to the Government of Canada

  • A Guaranteed Liveable Income (GLI) would guarantee a liveable monthly income to every Canadian with a social insurance number;
  • A GLI would establish an income floor below which no Canadian could fall, and reflect regional differences in the cost of living;
  • A GLI would replace the current patchwork of federal and provincial income assistance programs with a single, universal, cash benefit;
  • A GLI would be progressively taxed back based on income level;
  • A GLI would be administered through the existing tax system and require no means testing, thereby dramatically reducing federal and provincial administration costs;
  • A GLI would reduce poverty, thereby reducing the demand on social services, law enforcement and health care, resulting in additional cost savings for government and taxpayers; and
  • A GLI would provide a financial safety net for all Canadians, especially through major economic shifts, pandemics, natural disasters, or industry automation.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to implement a GLI for all Canadians.
