Iglika is a senior economist and public interest researcher at the Canadian Center for Policy Alternatives (CPPA). She is a feminist economist who researches and writes on key social and economic challenges facing BC and Canada, including poverty, economic insecurity and labour market shifts toward more precarious work. Iglika also investigates issues of government finance, tax policy and privatization and how they relate to the accessibility and quality of public services. She is particularly interested in the potential for public policy to build a more just, inclusive and sustainable economy. Iglika actively seeks opportunities to share her expertise more broadly. Much of her community involvement outside of CCPA—on boards, in coalitions and in other advisory roles—is in service of promoting equity and empowering women and other marginalized people.
