Brockville Officially Wants in on Guaranteed Basic Income Project
It's official, Brockville wants to be part of Ontario's Guaranteed Basic Income Project.
Brockville City council approved the motion on Tuesday (February 28th) without discussion.
According to the Province the program will help lift more people out of poverty, simplify the income security system, improve people’s health, empower people to get jobs and help people afford housing.
The project is being funded by the Province who will provide $25 million a year for three years. The idea is to study those who will receive the higher benefit versus a control group who will not.
The program would replace both Ontario Works and the Ontario Disability Support Program.
Smith Falls has also lobbied the province to be part of the pilot project.
