Hi All,

I feel strongly that this program can benefit artists very much, as a result I have committed time and effort in supporting this initiative.

Principles of a Guaranteed Livable Income

A guaranteed livable income would prevent people from having their lives shortened and made miserable from poverty and poverty-related ill health.

– C.A. L’Hirondelle, Livable4All

A women-led group of volunteers in Vancouver, BC bringing the voices of the feminist, racial equality, and anti-poverty movements to the campaign for Guaranteed Livable Income (GLI), an income guaranteed to all set at a rate that meets the cost of living.

They want a non-taxable Guaranteed Livable Income (GLI) to replace our current exploitative and paternalistic welfare system, and reduce inequality in the labour market, without leaving anyone worse off.

They have developed a set of principles for a Guaranteed Livable Income (GLI).
