The Capacity Joint Table
The Capacity Joint Table (CJT) was established to improve understanding of the
challenges facing the sector and to develop ways of strengthening the sector’s ability
to meet the demands placed on it by Canadian society. The Table’s first meeting was held
in October 2000; members represented federal government departments and voluntary organizations.
The Policy Internships and Fellowships (PIAF) Committee
A committee of government and voluntary sector members was struck to provide overall co-ordination
for the PIAF Pilot Project, including advice on the development, implementation, and evaluation
of the project.
The Advocacy Working Group
The Advocacy Working Group (AWG) was a voluntary sector-only working group. The
AWG worked to ensure that advocacy is fully recognized and supported, within the voluntary sector
and outside of it. Its focus was to create the legal, financial and regulatory framework necessary
to support the advocacy work of the voluntary sector.
