In this Five Good Ideas session, Sabreena Delhon, Executive Director of the Samara Centre for Democracy, presents her five good ideas for how non-profits can evolve their impact in this period of transformation.
Why municipal elections matter, Maytree Policy School call for applications, and the Canada Working-age Supplement report.
Questions for every candidate for municipal councils on what they will do to address the issues that impact human rights and human dignity.
Recording of the Canada Working-Age Supplement launch event highlighting the report’s key findings followed by a panel discussion on the challenges and opportunities available to address the depth of poverty working-age single adults experience.
Maytree and Community Food Centres Canada (CFCC) are proposing the development of the Canada Working-Age Supplement (CWAS). If adopted, the CWAS would build on the current Canada Workers Benefit, reduce the depth of poverty working-age single adults experience by up to 40 per cent, and could be implemented without delay.
Instituting an income floor for single adults regardless of employment status would be a step that is both principled and practical. A refundable tax credit is just one way that the federal government can take leadership on poverty.
