Ending Poverty

The most effective way we can address poverty nationwide is to bring in a Guaranteed Liveable Income.

A Guaranteed Liveable Income provides reassurance for families struggling to make ends meet, a vital helping hand for stay-at-home parents, stability for the thousands of Canadians who can only find part-time work, and much needed support for those looking to complete their education and launch a successful career.

Tackling poverty in Canada will take bold action. Our plan will ensure no Canadian’s income falls below what is necessary for health, life, and dignity.
