Basic Income Calgary and Vibrant Communities Calgary invite you to join the next Community Conversation, Wednesday, September 6, 2017, where we’ll be talking about basic income through the lens of food insecurity.

Our Keynote Speaker, Dr. Lynn McIntyre, will discuss a series of policy studies that support a basic income guarantee as a promising solution to food insecurity in Canada.

Dr. Lynn McIntyre is a Professor Emerita of Community Health Sciences at the University of Calgary. She is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada in Public Health and Preventative Medicine, as well as a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences. Having retired from her active faculty position in November of 2015, Dr. McIntyre currently works on ways to reduce household food insecurity – insufficient access to food due to financial constraint.

Location: Alexandra Centre Society, 922 9 Ave SE
Time: 6:30 - 9:00 p.m.
