An Accord Between the Government of Canada and the Voluntary Sector

Previous Page  Previous Page     Next Page  Next Page     Table of Contents  Table of Contents

INTRODUCTION

SCOPE OF THE ACCORD
The Accord's focus is on the relationship between the voluntary sector and the Government of Canada. Both the Government of Canada and the voluntary sector have relationships with other levels of government (provincial, territorial, local), private sector entities and labour unions. Each of these relationships has its own history and dynamics. The Accord recognizes the importance of these relationships but it does not apply to them.

The Accord also recognizes that many voluntary sector organizations do not work directly with the Government of Canada but are affected by the regulatory, economic and social context it shapes. It acknowledges that there are circumstances where the Government of Canada and voluntary sector organizations may advocate different courses of policy action or choose to tackle issues of common interest separately.

This Accord does not compel the Government of Canada and the voluntary sector to work together; rather, it outlines the values and principles that will govern the relationship when they choose to work together
