Petition Regarding Guaranteed Liveable Income (GLI) in PEI

Guaranteed Livable Income is an issue that our congregation has been learning about and working on for some time now. We invite you to read the petition below and sign it in support of GLI in PEI. We have printed copies available for you to sign on Sundays, but if you are attending virtually and would like to sign it please download and fill out the petition. You can then return it to Mary Sanderson at [email protected]

The petition reads:

WHEREAS in November 2020 the Prince Edward Island Legislature Special Committee on Poverty tabled a report calling for the creation of a Guaranteed Livable Income pilot program for Prince Edward Island.

WHEREAS this report has the support of all political parties in Prince Edward Island to establish a demonstration of a Guaranteed Livable Income (GLI) project in that province.

WHEREAS the benefits of such a programme for Canadians would be immense, helping to form part of the country’s post-COVID economic recovery, and help meet and solidify Canada’s commitment to implement the UN Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.

We, the undersigned citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to:

  • Begin immediate negotiations with the Government of PEI for the development and implementation of a Guaranteed Livable Income project for Prince Edward Island, and
  • That during these negotiations, the Government of Canada ensure that all federal transfer payments that support provincially funded services and programs remain in place, regardless of any initiatives on a Guaranteed Livable Income that are implemented by the Government of Prince Edward Island.
