An Accord Between the Government of Canada and the Voluntary Sector

Message from the Prime Minister
Throughout their history, Canadians have worked together to build a strong, just, inclusive and caring society. The result of our efforts is a country like no other, a welcoming nation that recognizes diversity, and believes in sharing opportunity as well as prosperity.

Today, more than ever before, Canada depends on the combined strength of its private, public and voluntary sectors. While each of these contributes to our quality of life and deserves recognition, we are showcasing today the special value of the voluntary sector. A sector that engages Canadians across the country in the life of their communities, providing services and giving voice to shared concerns. A sector that is, in short, essential to our collective well being.

The Government of Canada and the voluntary sector have long worked side-by-side. Now, the Accord between the Government of Canada and the Voluntary Sector marks the launch of a new era of co-operation and respect.

I believe that this Accord is the blueprint for a strong and vibrant relationship between the voluntary sector and the Government of Canada. As such, it will show us how we can continue to work together to build a better country. This has always been the Canadian Way, and it is a tradition our government is proud to carry into the 21st century.
