Ontario's basic income pilot project was making a different in the lives of participants, and its cancellation was "devastating," a Lakehead University researcher said.

Ravi Gokani, associate professor at Lakehead's School of Social Work, has been speaking to people who participated in the pilot, people who didn't, and community organizations about the impact the pilot had on the community.

Thunder Bay was one of the cities in Ontario chosen to participate in the project, which provided up to $17,000 per year to those who qualified for the program.
