Promise History

2.03.05 - “The CAQ government promises to] adjust […] social assistance programs, starting in 2023, to ensure that government assistance makes it possible for all Quebecers to better deal with inflation”


“After the indexation of 6.44% in 2023, the indexation for 2024 is the second-highest rate since the tax system began to be automatically indexed in 2002 // In addition, this is the second consecutive year where the government has increased the parameters of the tax system and social assistance programs at a higher rate than the forecast inflation. This indexation will therefore improve Quebecers’ purchasing power”


“The Basic Income Program is intended for individuals with a persistent severely limited capacity for employment. It came into effect on January 1, 2023. […] You have no steps to take to be admitted to the Basic Income Program. // You are automatically admitted to this new program if you meet the following requirements: // You are already receiving benefits under the Social Solidarity Program. // You have had severely limited capacity for employment for at least 66 months over the previous 72 months “


« Les contribuables profiteront aussi d’une indexation importante, soit 6,44 %, du régime d’imposition des particuliers et des prestations d’assistance sociale à compter du 1er janvier 2023. Cette indexation représentera un gain total de plus de 2,3 milliards de dollars par année pour les Québécois.  »
