New Democratic Party of Canada leadership candidate Jagmeet Singh, today launched a bold plan to help lift Canadians in need out of poverty and build a tax system that is more fair and just.

 Jagmeet’s plan will ensure that persons with disabilities, seniors, and every Canadian working full-time, will live a dignified life while building an inclusive economy that invests in all Canadians - not only the wealthy.

 Jagmeet Singh’s Income Security Agenda includes a Canada Seniors Guarantee; a Working Canadian Guarantee and a Canadian with Disabilities Guarantee. This will be coupled with the Tax Fairness Agenda that will close loopholes that have allowed corporations to avoid paying their fair share.

“Right now, millions of Canadians are hurting” said Singh. “I want to build an inclusive economy and country, defined by how we take care of those who need it most and how we provide security for all Canadians struggling to make ends meet.”

Together, with Jagmeet Singh’s Better Work Agenda, these bold new proposals will help alleviate poverty for millions of Canadians while building an Inclusive  economy and a more progressive tax system that invest in all Canadians.
