On this episode of Appointed, we continue our discussion on guaranteed livable income with the co-chair of the Basic Income Canada Youth Network, Chloe Halpenny. Chloe and Fregine explore the impact a guaranteed livable income could have on young people in Canada; decimate myths and stereotypes surrounding youth and work-ethic; and discuss the work being done by the Basic Income Canada Youth Network.
Chloe Halpenny helped establish the Basic Income Canada Youth Network in 2019 and currently serves as the organization’s co-chair. Previously, Chloe had studied basic income during her master’s program at the University of Cambridge. Her dissertation, “Basic Income: A Feminist Proposal? Informing feminist analyses through the lived experience of Ontario Basic Income Pilot participants”, focused on the Ontario Basic Income Pilot project, which ran between 2018 and 2019 in three Ontario municipalities.
Stay tuned for the next episode in the Guaranteed Livable Income series!
