Tuesday, February 5th at Murphy's Community Centre

Tuesday, January 15, 2019

Join us on February 5th to discuss the current health and well-being of children on PEI, its relationship with income, and to explore potential options about where we should go from here to improve their quality of life.

 
In the first half of this event, guest speaker Dr. Heather Morrison, Chief Public Health Officer of PEI, will present findings from the PEI Children's Report 2017. The report can be found at the following link: https://www.princeedwardisland.ca/sites/default/files/publications/pei_childrens_report_web_2017_2.pdf
 
In the second half of this event, the PEI Working Group for a Livable Income will lead a discussion on basic income guarantee and ask participants: Could a basic income guarantee be a solution to childhood deprivation?
 
Whether you are interested in improving the health and well-being of children, curious about a basic income guarantee, or you just want to learn more about either of these topics, you won't want to miss out on this very interesting discussion.
 
This event is free, accessible, and open to the public. All are welcome to attend!
 
Storm date: Wednesday, February 6th, 6:30-8:30pm
 
Brought to you by the PEI Working Group for a Livable Income and the Public Health Association of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.
