Maytree’s submission is focused on ensuring that the Manitoba government takes action to strengthen the province’s social safety net so that those living in deep poverty can live a life with dignity.

To this end, Maytree recommends that the Manitoba government:

  1. Increase benefit amounts for people receiving social assistance.
  2. Index basic social assistance and other income support benefits and tax credits.
  3. Increase and index earning exemption amounts for social assistance recipients.
  4. Transform part of the Canada Workers Benefit (CWB) into the proposed Canada Working-Age Supplement (CWAS).
