  • Ontario basic income pilot project to launch in Hamilton, Lindsay and Thunder Bay

    Premier Kathleen Wynne announced Monday that Hamilton, Lindsay and Thunder Bay will take part in Ontario's basic income pilot project.

    She said in a speech in Hamilton that: "The project will explore the effectiveness of providing a basic income to people who are currently living on low incomes, whether they are working or not. People participating in our pilot communities will receive a minimum amount of income each year— a basic income, no matter what."

    The premier said the three-year project will start for people making "just under $17,000 a year, but even that amount may make a real difference to someone who is striving to reach for a better life."

    Ontario set to begin shifting home care responsibilities

    Ontario begins dissolving its 14 community care access centres next week, but critics insist the move won't cut red tape, free up money or improve home care for patients.

    Every year more than 700,000 people in Ontario count on the personal support workers, nurses and therapists who are funded by CCACs.

    But the CCACs have been the subject of damning audits, and last December the government passed its Patients First Act, which handed the responsibility of home care to the local health integration networks in each region.
