The Policy Study Committee was established in January, 1937 to examine five major issues: the relationship of the FJPT to public welfare programs, FJPT financial and budgeting policies, the potential inclusion of the FJPT in a proposed Toronto Community Chest, the coordination of case work and relief activities, and solving relationship issues between FJPT case work and recreational agencies. Mr. H. M. Samuel was committee chairman.
A temporary sub-committee was struck to examine the issue of coordinating case work agencies. It met in February, 1937 and reported back to the main committee in March, 1937. This appears to be the only issue that did result in specific recommendations by this committee.
The 1938 creation of the UJWF made the further existence of this FJPT committee unnecessary.
