Basic Income: An Introduction

Basic income has been described as potentially one of the most transformative social policies that we can enact. It has the possibility of ending poverty, releasing entrepreneurial potential, and increasing productivity by creating financial opportunities that would allow individuals to upgrade their skillset. Yet, it has had its detractors. Others have described it as being as being prohibitively expensive, as paying for people to sit on their couches and as removing the motivation for work. So, what is the truth? 

Fortunately, Basic income is a social policy that has been deeply studied with experimentation of it around the globe. 


Join us for a conversation with John Rook, as we discern if Basic Income is an issue that we want to support. John Rook has a wealth of experience from his leadership at several Calgary non-profits including The Calgary Homeless Foundation, Potential Place, The Alex Community Health Centre, and The Salvation Army Community Services. He is a leading advocate for policy change in Calgary. John is also a board member of Basic Income Canada Network.
