While the Canadian government acted quickly to provide economic support to Canadians thrown out of work by public health regulations to control the spread of COVID-19, many Canadians were left out. We will report on our research with unemployed Canadians not supported by CERB about their perspectives on how an unconditional basic income available to all those who need it might better serve them, and our social media education campaign in conjunction with the Basic Income Canada Network.
