On Thursday, April 8, at 12.30 p.m. on the eve of the Liberal National Convention, the United Church of Canada will be inviting Canadians across the country to light a candle in support of a guaranteed livable income, often referred to as the guaranteed basic income.

The COVID-19 pandemic has heightened the importance of health and well-being of the entire community and exposed the cracks in the current economic situation. The United Church believes this is a unique opportunity to make an important policy change to ensure greater income security for all Canadians. Details here.
