The concept of a universal basic income has received considerable attention during this pandemic, as Canada has expanded its traditional safety nets beyond its earlier programs. Many organizations are now promoting a universal Basic Income (BI) as a better alternative than the patchwork of social programs  we currently have. The Calgary Alliance for the Common Good has adopted this issue as one of its major
initiatives and currently has a campaign underway to inform all Canadians and promote the idea as good
social policy.
