On  Wednesday, September 30th  from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. EST  join a webinar that explores basic income as a solution to poverty and food insecurity. In this one hour webinar, we are joined by two esteemed panelists who are leading the charge for basic income. Hugh Segal has been advocating for basic income through his many political posts (including as Conservative senator between 2005 and 2014), as an author, and as an academic. Dr. Andrew Pinto hails from the Centre for Inner City Health at St. Michael’s Hospital and is researching the effects of boosting incomes of low-income and marginalized patients. CFCC’s Chief Operating Officer, Kathryn Scharf, will moderate the conversation, and Food Secure Canada’s Director, Diana Bronson, will speak about how people across Canada can join Eat Think Vote – a national campaign for food security.

This webinar will outline how guaranteeing a basic income for all would greatly reduce the number of Canadians experiencing food insecurity and, more importantly, offer a more dignified social safety net that ensures no one falls below a certain income level.
