Non-profit communications strategist and advocate in health and human rights. Partner, mom and wannabe Broadway star when time allows.
Janet Butler-McPhee is a non-profit communications and advocacy strategist with a particular interest in social justice, health and human rights, in both Canada and abroad. She's also a displaced Nova Scotian now living in Toronto, Canada with her partner and two young children, one of whom is a threenager. 'Nuff said.
This new benefit is meant to "lift some 315,000 Canadian children out of poverty" by adding to household income, tax-free, for those most in need. It is based on Adjusted Family Net Income, a line item on our tax returns (which doesn't allow for a lot of nuance, I'll concede, but still seems more fair than not).
