Can the complex issue of poverty actually be addressed in Canada? Author Alan Redway believes the answer is yes-if it is tackled at a federal level-and explores how this can be achieved with the introduction of a Universal Basic Income in our country. A comprehensive examination of exactly what a Universal Basic Income is, why it is necessary, and what its benefits are, A Big Idea: Eliminating Poverty in Canada also includes a historical overview of social benefits in Canada and addresses possible barriers to the implementation of this proposed universal benefit.

In a time when 14% of Canadians can't afford to pay going-market rents to keep a roof over their heads and one in eight Canadian household is food insecure, an immediate response to poverty in this country is more important than ever. This is the book that all caring Canadian citizens-and politicians-need to read right now.
