Abstract

This paper proposes and describes an evolutionary approach to development of a basic income by the Government of Manitoba in order to decrease economic disadvantage and inequality in the province. We demonstrate that a new approach is required because poverty reduction in Manitoba has lagged behind the rest of Canada, and because the level of inequality has remained stable for more than a decade. We outline an incremental approach to developing a provincial basic income, and some of the political and practical challenges that will need to be taken into account.

Keywords: Basic Income, Guaranteed Income, Inequality, Poverty, Manitoba
