James Wilson (Treaty Commissioner for Manitoba) presents on the topic of Treaty Relations Commission: Do the Treaties Confer a Basic Income Guarantee?
A Basic Income for Canada and Manitoba: Why Not? was a symposium held on February 5, 2015 at Hanley Hall – St. Paul’s College at the University of Manitoba. The event was coordinated by the Faculty of Social Work at the University of Manitoba with support from the Manitoba Institute for Policy Research.
By bringing together government, practitioners, scholars and members of the community, the Manitoba Institute for Policy Research will further debates and discussion on matters of policy development, administration, and analysis both in Manitoba and across the country.
Currently we are working with the Government of Manitoba, the Federal Government, the United Way of Winnipeg, and other voluntary sector agencies on developing and implementing new outreach, training, and research opportunities.
