The Administration Committee of the United Jewish Welfare fund was originally a Dec. 1, 1936 special committee, formed to examine the income and expenditures of Toronto Jewish agencies and also to examine the need for a new Toronto Jewish "Community Chest". A further series of meetings in early 1937 resulted the creation of the United Jewish Welfare Fund which would act as the sole fund-raising organization for an enlarged federation of all Jewish agencies. By June 1937 this special committee had been renamed the Administrative Committee, first of the Joint Campaign and, in July, of the new United Jewish Welfare Fund.
The first chair of the UJWF's now permanent Administration Committee, Ben Sadowski, was appointed its first Executive Director in 1939 but again served as Secretary for its January 1939 meeting.

As well as leading to the creation of the UJWF, the Administrative Committee was responsible for the creation of a permanent campaign office, staffed by a full-time Chair and Vice-Chair and supported by experienced community fund-raising staff. It was also occasionally required to examine administrative personnel and policy issues, budget issues, and produce new financial overviews of the UJWF.

The first meeting of the National Council took place on 7 February 1921, at the Zionist Headquarters in Montreal. The Council was composed of the Organization's executive officers, regional representatives and representatives from Hadassah-Wizo and Canadian Young Judea. An Executive Board was also formed, which included members elected at the conventions, ZOC executive officers and the immediate past-president, the chairs of National Administrative Council standing committees, representatives of Hadassah-Wizo and Young Judea, and other National Administrative Council regional representatives elected from the Council's members. The Board could also appoint additional members at its discretion to assist in its work.
