The Mandate of the Working Group on Financing
The Working Group on Financing (WGF) is a sector-only group within the VSI whose proposed mandate is to:
In order to address how the sector accesses and manages financial resources from all sources, the working group will divide its work as follows:
- Examine the broad question of how the voluntary sector is financed, identify issues of concern and develop strategies to enhance capacity, efficiencies, and long-term sustainability.
In the course of this work on how the sector is financed, the group will monitor the issue of who receives funding, for research and referral at a later time.
- They will work within the voluntary sector to explore issues and concerns of unique interest to the sector and independently present perspectives on federal funding to Ministers.
- They will partner with the Capacity Joint Table to form the sub-committee on financing, and will explore the broad question of how the sector is financed.
- They will serve as a reference group to the Treasury Board Secretariat Federal Funding Study.
