Scouts Canada, the country’s leading youth organization, offers challenging programs for boys, girls and youth age 5-26 in thousands of individual groups in most cities and towns across Canada.
Child & Youth Safety
In December 2011, Scouts Canada engaged KPMG to do a thorough, arms-length review of all records held by Scouts Canada related to the suspension and/or termination of volunteer leaders for sexual misconduct with youth covering 64 years, from 1947 to 2011.
As part of its 2012 Child and Youth Safety Plan, Scouts Canada unveiled two major documents in June 2012: the KPMG Review of Scouts Canada Leader Suspension and Termination Records from 1947 to 2011 and the Scouts Canada Child and Youth Safety Update 2012.
Scouts Canada wants parents and the Canadian public to know the full extent of its commitment to providing a safe, secure and nurturing environment for children and youth. If you have any questions about these reports, please feel free to contact the Scouts Canada Help Centre.
