Welcome To Northern Lights Council!

In September 2000, the Edmonton and Northern Alberta Regions, together with parts of Central Alberta, came together as the Northern Lights Region. The territory now extending from the British Columbia border to the west to the Saskatchewan border in the east, and in the north including the Northwest Territories and in the south extending to about 20 kilometres south of Red Deer.

Now, one of the largest council territories in Canada, our Council include cities such as Edmonton, Red Deer, Grande Prairie, Fort McMurray and Yellowknife--as well as dozens of small communities and rural centres.

With every new member, with every camp and every community service project, Scouts Canada makes one simple promise to Canadian youth, parents and society:

Scouts have fun adventures discovering new things and experiences they wouldn’t discover elsewhere. Along the way, they develop into capable, confident and well-rounded individuals, better prepared for success in the world. Scouts is the start of something great. It starts with Scouts.
