Capacity Joint Table Advisory Committee
Under Phase I of the Voluntary Sector Initiative (VSI), The Capacity
Joint Table (CJT), for which Human Resources Development Canada
(HRDC) is the lead department, was tasked with looking at three
main areas of capacity related to the voluntary sector:
The Table also supported a number of activities of the sector-only
Working Group on Financing.
- Skills Development and Recruitment
- Research and Information Sharing;
- Policy capacity.
Many of the resources from the Table are now available.
The Table’s mandate ended in October 2002 and a smaller
Advisory Committee was struck
by the Capacity Joint Table. The Advisory Committee’s mandate
is to provide ongoing coordination and leadership to the CJT work
until the end of the VSI in 2005. This includes ensuring that
the CJT projects are linked to each other and to broader VSI activities.
The Capacity Joint Table Secretariat in Human Resources Development
Canada supports the work of the Advisory Committee. The
Secretariat is implementing a strategy
to disseminate knowledge in a consolidated way about CJT products.
