Basic Income talk at Peterborough Public Health meeting

Peterborough This Week

The Basic Income Peterborough Network is hosting a panel discussion on Thursday, May 3 with representatives from Lindsay (Dana Bowman, who is registered for the Ontario Pilot, Lindsay Advocate Publisher Roderick Benns, and Chief John Hagarty) to learn more about the Ontario Basic Income Pilot and its impact on the community.

Over the last few months, Lindsay residents have had the opportunity to enroll in Ontario’s Basic Income Pilot. ‘Basic Income’ is a monthly payment that makes sure all people have sufficient income to meet their basic needs.

Selected participants in the Basic Income Pilot will be provided a predictable amount of money each month to help them better afford basic needs such as housing and food.
