Sectoral committees 

A community-based approach such as this requires the intervention of a large number of participants and community partners, from both the private and public sectors. This approach is reflected in the work of CIPA’s sectoral committees. Sectoral committees, supported by the project’s major partner organizations and government bodies, offer recommendations, suggestions and propositions for the action plans presented by CIPA. These committees offer support, counseling and supervision. 

The various sectoral committees include:

  • Information and Communications Technologies

  • Community Access Centers Network

  • Business and Economic Development

  • Natural Resources

  • Municipalities and Local Service Districts

  • Online Emergency Response Plan

  • Health and Wellness

  • Justice


CIPA’s success is due in part to the support it receives from the community and the private sector and to the exceptional collaboration of the provincial and national governments.
