Lindsay’s Aaron Hughes was on Ontario Works until he joined the Basic Income Pilot Project and he says he is already noticing an improvement in his health.

The Basic Income Pilot Project began in October for Lindsay as part of Ontario’s experiment with a basic income, a monthly, no-strings-attached payment of up to $1,400 for people living in poverty. Those with disabilities receive an additional $500 a month.

The project is also geared towards people on other programs such as Ontario Works (OW) and Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP).

There are still spots available for the project. … Enrollment for the Basic Income Pilot Project will end on April 16, 2018.
