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 Research Steering Committee
The CJT's Research Steering Committee, comprised of voluntary sector and government members,
was responsible for overseeing the NSNVO project, including the Request for Proposal process.
The Committee assisted the CJT in enhancing the research and information sharing capacity of
all types and sizes of voluntary organizations. It also identified capacity needs and gaps and
recommended appropriate research studies to address these.
The National Survey of Giving, Volunteering, and Participating
Further Analysis and Dissemination Committee
The National Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating (NSGVP) Further Analysis and Dissemination
Committee consisted of voluntary sector and government members. The Committee was responsible
for the Request for Proposal process for analysis and dissemination of the 1997 and 2000 NSGVP
and the 1987 Volunteer Activity Survey results. This committee’s work ended with the completion
of VSI Phase I.
