Basic Income Guarantee
Basic Income Guarantee (BIG) has the potential to uplift individuals and families out of poverty, foster economic stability, and create a more equitable society. Premier Dennis King has made a promise to implement BIG with the assistance of the federal government. Michelle Neill and the Island New Democrats will continue advocating for this important policy and hold Premier King to account.
