CUC Calls for “Guaranteed Liveable Income”

The CUC National Voice Team has released a statement calling on the federal government to include a Guaranteed Liveable Income program in its pandemic recovery plans. The federal government’s swift implementation of the Canadian Emergency Response Benefit program (CERB) demonstrates its recognition of the need for a stable income to weather economic shocks, prioritize health and wellbeing, and provide a cushion against poverty. These actions now give us a roadmap to help us ensure all Canadian residents can live with security going forward.

Our statement also includes information for education and reflection, along with a sample letter which can be sent to local Members of Parliament in support of our statement. You can find the CUC statement and related resources in the news section on our website. It was also published in this week’s eNews. Please pass this along to your colleagues and congregations.
