November 2nd First Monday Basic Income meeting

This month we’ll be meeting at SFU Harbour Ctr, Rm 2235 (EJ Safarik Sr Conference Room) from 7.30pm to 9pm.

We will be having a conversation about how working patterns might change when Basic Income is introduced in Canada. Please come prepared with key points from articles to share and/or short YouTube videos to stimulate the conversation.

All are welcome.  These conversations give us all a chance to meet other people in Vancouver who support the idea of a Basic Income Guarantee in Canada.

The SFU Harbour Centre is at 515 West Hastings Street. We are up the escalator on the 2nd floor in one of the larger rooms.
