In May 1950, a conference on unified fund-raising was held in London, Ontario. Attending were leaders of many Ontario Jewish Communities, and the Canadian Jewish Congress, who were brought together to examine the possibility of moving from municipally-based individual campaigns to regionally-based sharing systems. Following this conference, further meetings were held over the following three years, mostly in Toronto. No final sharing system based on larger geographical areas appears to have emerged.

Its first meeting was held on May 12, 1953. Although the issues facing smaller Jewish communities were discussed at first, the Committee's focus on shared responsibilities between CJC and all local communities soon became the major issues of discussion.
