The Green Party of Canada proposed a guaranteed income program as part of their plan to reduce poverty.
Green Party of Manitoba Leader James Beddome, along with national party Leader Elizabeth May, unveiled their poverty reduction strategies at a downtown Winnipeg hotel on Friday. They cited a 2018 study by the Citizens for Public Justice that found as many as three in 10 Manitobans live in poverty.
The estimated cost of the guaranteed income program for Manitoba would be $1.58 billion. Although the plan would not eliminate poverty entirely, it would lift 35,000 adults and 23,000 children out of poverty. People who remained below the poverty line would see their income increase by 21 per cent
