The Basic Income Canada Youth Network (BICYN) is a national group of engaged young people (under 35) in Canada who want to see the federal government adopt a basic income for those who need it.
BICYN’s mission is to mobilize young people to advocate for and celebrate the benefits of a basic income through community-building, education, and activism. They are connected to academics and experts who research basic income, as well as those who experience-d poverty and participants from the Ontario Basic Income pilot.

“Youth in this country are powerful, intelligent, and resilient. Many of us will live through not one, but two economic crises before turning 25. We deserve to be heard in conversations where decisions that will drastically affect our lives are made.”– Chloe Halpenny, vice-chair of the Basic Income Canada Youth Network
