Our ​commitment to Equity, Inclusion, anti-racism, and Reconciliation involves a lot of important work evaluating our Scouting history and current practices to create an authentic way forward.

We are excited to ground this commitment in a core starting point — to ensure our actions are meaningful and specific to how we can do better. This means self-evaluation of our Scouting Movement's colonial past, how inclusive we feel in the present, so we can design a tailored way forward for an exciting future together. We are excited to have you join us in this process, and create a movement that truly welcomes all who want to join, inside and out.

As we build awareness and acknowledgement of our history, we are grateful to our Reconciliation Advisors. Scouting is a land-based program, so we value their specific insights and guidance for the Scouting community to start this process, and support an authentic journey towards both Reconciliation and Equity that is both local and personal. 


Here's Our Roadmap

Our Apology to Indigenous Peoples

Interconnected Areas of Focus


Our ​commitment to Inclusion, anti-racism, and Reconciliation must include a closer look at our Scouting history and seeing how exactly that has affected today’s Scouting experience from an Equity and Intersectional perspective, to create a genuinely inclusive way forward for all.


"I used to think...and now I think". Updating our perspectives can be tough. We have heard from Scouting members and Reconciliation advisors that more educational resources are needed to at least begin mindful conversations with youth.


If we want to move forward together, it is important to say sorry – and acknowledge the affect we have had on diverse communities. That means not only understanding but clearly acknowledging the barriers that have stood in our way. 


Through partnerships with other organizations, communities, and the people who stand by our journey of awareness and ownership, we are excited to try new things, and co-create a way forward so all can safely belong.

Reconciliation Journey

Scouting is a land-based program, grounded in stewardship, knowledge, and skills about the land.
