PLAN Canada founder calls for basic income

Roderick Benns

The co-founder of a major advocacy group in Canada for people with disabilities says there needs to be a “corrective balance” in the amount of money available for programs versus the amount of money available for individuals.

Within that difference lies the elements of providing a basic income to all Canadians who may need it, says Al Etmanski.

Etmanski is the co-founder of Planned Lifetime Advocacy Network (PLAN), a non-profit organization founded in 1989 to help families who have children with disabilities. PLAN works in collaboration with families and the community to build personal support networks, make plans to secure the future of kids with disabilities, and brings families together for mutual support.
