Welcome to the King-Vaughan Federal Green Party Association
Green Parties around the world share common values as expressed in the Charter of the Global Greens. The policies of the Green Party of Canada are based on six fundamental principles
We declare our commitment to non-violence and strive for a culture of peace and cooperation between states.
We recognize the scope for the material expansion of society within the biosphere, and the need to maintain biodiversity through the use of renewable resources.
We assert that the key to social justice is the equitable distribution of resources to ensure that all have full opportunities for personal and social development.
We acknowledge that human beings are part of the natural world and we respect the specific value of all forms of life, including non-human species.
We strive for a democracy in which all citizens have the right to express their views, and are able to directly participate in decisions which affect their lives.
We honour and value equally the Earth’s biological and ecological diversity together with the context of individual responsibility toward all beings.
A Guaranteed Livable Income, also known as a basic income, is a government program that ensures every Canadian will receive a basic income set at a level above the poverty line. This amount will be enough for the basic essentials, allowing people to live with dignity and good health.
Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne announced recently that Ontario will launch a three year basic income pilot project to take place in Hamilton, Lindsay and Thunder Bay. The last time Canada experimented with a basic income was back in the 70s in Dauphin, Manitoba with some success before being shut down for political reasons.
