Improving the lives of Manitobans living in deep poverty
Published on 03/03/2023
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:
- Increase benefit amounts for people receiving social assistance.
- Index basic social assistance and other income support benefits and tax credits.
- Increase and index earning exemption amounts for social assistance recipients.
- Transform part of the Canada Workers Benefit (CWB) into the proposed Canada Working-Age Supplement (CWAS).
