Scouts Canada places great importance on creating a fun and safe environment for our members, especially children and youth. How do we create this environment? It’s a reflection of the culture of safety that extends throughout the organization.

This section of our website is dedicated to providing you with the information you need to know about our policies and procedures, screening and training of volunteers and staff, and tips and tools to help you and your child get the most out of their Scouting experience.

As Canada’s largest youth organization, we are deeply committed to showing leadership in the area of child and youth safety. We truly believe we have a responsibility to help make Canada safer for our children and youth. If you have questions about Scouts Canada’s safety policies, or have a particular safety issue that you would like to bring to our attention, please contact our Safe Scouting team at or 1-800-339-6643.
