Since we didn’t even get far enough into the Basic Income Pilot to do a survey, I would just like to say that getting a fair living wage has changed my life for the better. I have been able to invest in many things to help with my physical and mental health, and to continue to support my well-being. Stress triggers my psychosis, and these things – along with not having to worry about money – have allowed me to stay out of the in-patient mental health ward, and have given me the stability to do more volunteer work in the community. And all of this money I’ve spent in order to better myself has been put back into the Ontario economy. I feel that if given the chance to complete the three year study, the conclusion would be that basic income for everybody benefits the recipients, our supporters, the community, the economy, and the province as a whole.
