Petition for Food & Gas Cash Relief

Our paycheques are melting to inflation.

Food prices are up 10%, gas is up over 50%, and housing costs are out of control – while average wages are up only 3%. 1 in 4 Canadians are eating less because there isn’t enough money for food, while 1 in 5 Canadians went hungry at least once since 2020. People everywhere are being squeezed.

Inflation disproportionately hurts working families and those with low incomes. They need cash relief now.

We’ve launched a petition calling on our government to support Canadians with direct cash relief to help with these new added costs. It would ease the pain of inflation by making sure everyone can meet the rising cost of living.

The most effective thing we can do is put cash into the hands who people who need it most. We know this is better at helping with affordability than price controls or tax relief, which subsidizes those who don’t need it.

Sign the petition on this page and tell your representatives and our government that Canadians demand direct cash relief now.

This campaign for Food & Gas Cash Relief is launched by UBI Works, a national non-profit on a mission to make Basic Income a reality in Canada.
