Curious about basic income and whether or not you qualify?

The Ontario Basic Income Pilot group will host a booth at the Lindsay Central Exhibition to provide more information to town residents.

Postcards will be handed out to any and all visitors interested, and any visitors who would like more information regarding the pilot will be provided with an information brochure.

The team will also collect names and contact information from visitors who are interested in learning more about, or who are interested in applying, for the basic income. 

The booth will be set up in the Commonwell Mutual Exhibition Building, in row E, and the booth will be open Friday and Saturday from 10 am to 10 pm and on Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm.

Peter Milcyzn, the Minister Responsible for the Poverty Reduction Strategy and Minister of Housing, will be on hand Sunday morning for a visit.
