Replace CPP/QPP and OAS/GIS with a universal, annual pension for all Canadians that is adequate to provide all of the basic needs of individuals residing in Canada - shelter, food, clothing, transportation, sundries and a bit of discretionary allowance.
Why is this important?
Every Canadian should live with dignity regardless of their circumstances. Combing the resources of all Federal and provincial income support programs could fully fund such a pension program with enough left over to support low-income housing and other social programs to lift everyone out of poverty. Such initiatives would also reduce medical and prescription costs as well as impact significantly to reduce the cost of situational mental disorders and associated stressors.
