The Manitoba Story: A Basic Income Film & Panel Presentation
Hamilton Basic Income Group and The Hamilton Roundtable for Poverty Reduction invite you to attend this free basic income film screening and panel presentation on November 21st from 6:45 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

From 1974-1979 the first full-scale pilot of a Universal Basic Income was implemented in Manitoba. During the experiment, every resident of the small town of Dauphin was eligible to receive unconditional cash, just for signing up. The project was called Mincome. The results of Mincome, buried for 40 years, are brought to light in this documentary – a Truth Be Told film.

Panelists:
