At the 2021 Liberal National Convention, Liberals voted overwhelmingly in support of Basic Income, with both of their Basic Income policy resolutions among the top 5 most endorsed by delegates.
The Liberal Party has officially adopted policies in support of creating a Basic Income 3 times before at their conventions in 2014, 2016, and 2018. Despite this, Basic Income has never been included in any of the party’s platforms.
Liberal members have told their leadership for a 4th consecutive time that a Liberal government should institute a Basic Income. What's different this time is that one of the resolutions was supported by both the Senior Liberal Commission and elected Liberal MPs, a signal that the party establishment may finally be listening to its members.
