Background: 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 sector organizations.

The Table’s work focused on three main capacity issues:

  • skills development and recruitment (human resources);
  • research and information sharing; and
  • policy capacity.
The Table also worked in conjunction with the sector-only Working Group on Financing on a number of activities which explored sector financial capacity issues. The CJT Secretariat in Human Resources Development Canada supported the work of the Table.

The Table’s mandate ended in October 2002, with the completion of Phase I of the VSI, and a smaller Advisory Committee was struck; the 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 CJT Secretariat in Human Resources Development Canada continues to support the work of the Advisory Committee.

The three projects which were commissioned by the Working Group on Financing and funded by the Capacity Joint Table were:
