Elected officials across Canada are invited to take the Generational Fairness Champions Pledge! Download and post the pledge graphics below to your social media. We would love to know why you're taking the pledge. Please tag us @gensqueeze with #GenFairnessChampions.
Why do we need generational fairness champions?
Canada's generational system is broken.
Younger people are squeezed by the symptoms of generational unfairness: unaffordable housing, the high costs of raising a family, a deteriorating climate and rising government debts. Older people are worried about the legacy they're leaving for the kids and grandkids they love.
We must work together to restore generational fairness.
Generational fairness means asking Canadians to be good stewards of our shared resources; treat other generations as we would want to be treated; and invest fairly in wellbeing from the early years onward. The intergenerational reciprocity so many of us show in our families — where each member contributes in proportion to their needs and opportunities — should be a model for public policy.
