Income Security for Working-Age Adults in Canada: Let’s Consider the Model Under Our Nose
2008

Income Security for Working-Age Adults in Canada: Let’s consider the model under our nose builds upon the recommendations outlined in Stapleton’s 2007 Metcalf report, Why Is It So Tough To Get Ahead? It also expands upon a framework for income-security reform put forward to the Standing Senate Committee on Social Affairs, Science and Technology Subcommittee on Cities investigating urban poverty (see June 2008 report entitled Poverty, Housing, and Homelessness: Issues and Options). We hope that this paper will contribute to public policy dialogue and further inform governments’ work to eliminate poverty.
