Basic income report

In July 2018, government appointed an expert panel to study basic income in British Columbia. After two years of research, the expert panel has produced a comprehensive report making 65 recommendations to improve B.C.’s social safety net and recommended against implementing a basic income or conducting a basic income pilot.

Government is committed to reviewing the recommendations, in the context of TogetherBC, to determine the best path forward to reducing poverty and improving the lives of all British Columbians.
