Guaranteed annual income (also called basic income guarantee) is experiencing a resurgence as a public policy approach to improving economic and social wellbeing.

Analysis of data from the MINCOME study, in which everyone in the Manitoba town of Dauphin was guaranteed an annual income, has been very influential for policy makers considering basic income support as a population-level intervention.

Public health agencies and associations have expressed their support for guaranteed annual income and the government of Ontario recently announced that it will fund a pilot basic income project in the province.

This webinar will focus on the effects of guaranteed income policies on wellbeing.

The webinar will also explore the role of public health actors in supporting guaranteed income policies.
