Joint Steering Committee

The Joint Steering Committee (JSC) was created based on a mutual commitment of the Government of Canada and the voluntary sector to a collaborative approach and increased government - sector cooperation through the second phase of the Voluntary Sector Initiative (VSI). The role of the JSC includes:

  • Provide coordination and oversight for the remaining work of the VSI, and for implementation, dissemination and delivery of the VSI products and services.
  • Provide a forum for sharing information between advisory bodies, working groups and the Strategic Management Committee for the Canada Volunteerism Initiative
  • Ensure implementation and follow-up to the Accord and Codes of good Practice.
  • Serve as a forum for the identification and consideration of issues arising in this joint work or other significant issues brought forward by the Sector or Government
  • Provide a mechanism for dispute resolution for bodies and activities within the Voluntary Sector Initiative.
