Basic Income for Canadians
From the COVID-19 Emergency to Financial Security for All

By (author) Evelyn L. Forget


Biographical note (a single note referring to all contributors to a product – see PR.8.17 for a biography which is linked to a single contributor)

EVELYN L. FORGET is Canada's leading authority on basic income. She began researching the subject in the 1970s and continues that work as an economist in the School of Medicine at the University of Manitoba. Basic Income for Canadians was a nominee for the Donner Prize for excellence in public policy writing. This new edition analyses the results of the short‐lived 2018‐19 Ontario experiment on basic income, along with the measures implemented by the federal government in spring 2020 in response to the COVID‐19 emergency.

Professor Forget has been consulted by governments in Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, Finland, the Netherlands and Scotland on this topic. Her research has been featured on CBC Ideas, PBS Marketplace and in the documentary The Free Lunch Society. She lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
