Mayor of Iqaluit says basic income policy would bring dignity to northern territory

The mayor of Iqaluit, the capital of Nunavut, says basic income policy would bring dignity and equity to Canada’s largest territory.

Implementing a universal basic income for all could contribute to the state’s welfare and also answers to some of the challenges that an economy faces such as aging society, affordability, global competitiveness, labor markets restriction and public and social risks. Basic income will also contribute to the enhancement of gender equality in the state where it is practiced.
