Volunteer Opportunities

International Commissioner

We are looking for a volunteer to lead the strategic development of our international relationships and external Scouts Canada international operations. Reporting to the National Commissioner, the International Commissioner will be expected to structure a small volunteer team to meet Scouts Canada’s long term vision and business objectives and to advise the National Key 3 on international matters and to support Scouts Canada accordingly. 
 
With the new Scouts Canada Strategic Plan, and the transition to the Canadian Path, there is a need to bring a renewed focus to our international strategy. It is an exciting time to be part of the Scouts Canada leadership team and, in particular, leading Scouts Canada International work. We are passionate about maintaining and building our international relationships and profile within World Scouting and to improve further our support to our members in expanding their international opportunities. 
 
We are looking for a person who can ensure our international relations and participation in World Scouting events (including World Scout Jamborees, World Scout Moots and other international events where we send a Canadian contingent) continue to be of high quality. The International Commissioner is a key member of the National Service Team and will be required to work in partnership with the National Leadership Team, in particular the Deputy National Commissioner (DNC) Program, as well as professional staff, to help develop and implement a plan to achieve our priorities in this area.
