External activity - Minimum income: Rethinking government income support measures in Quebec and elsewhere in Canada

HEC Montreal

Thursday 4 Apr 2024
From 12PM To 1:30PM



Individuals who face a sudden job loss or drop in income often discover that Canada’s social safety net is incomplete and, for many, insufficient. As a result, gaps in income support programs can lead to more persistent poverty and poorer health outcomes, among other things, which only further increase the costs of public programs.

In recent years, some provinces have explored the idea of ​​introducing a guaranteed minimum income. What has research in Quebec, and more recently in Prince Edward Island, discovered about the potential of this policy idea? To find out, the Jacques-Parizeau Research Chair in Economic Policy invites you to a luncheon on April 4, 2024, at the new Hélène-Desmarais building at HEC Montréal (downtown), where renowned experts, Benoît Robidoux and Raquel Fonseca, will present their research and thoughts.
