REGISTRATION FEES SUBSIDIES
The No One Left Behind Program
At Scouts, we believe that every young person deserves to experience the world of adventure, friendship and self-development that Scouting offers. With your support for No One Left Behind, we can prepare even more youth across the country for future success.
How to Apply
Applications for the No One Left Behind registration subsidy are submitted during the registration process and are processed immediately. You can register your youth in Scouting by visiting myscouts.ca/join. When all of the members that you wish to register in Scouting appear in the My Family section, please select the Apply for Subsidy button to process your NOLB application.
About Membership Subsidies
After submitting your request you will be asked to advise on your household income and family size. This information will be factored into a financial needs test. The needs test will apply Statistics Canada’s Low Income Cut-Off (LICO) metric that is updated annually.
LICO is used by many service providers and levels of government to determine recreational subsidies. LICO calculates financial need based upon a family’s size (number of family members) and household income.
An exception process will be established and managed by No One Left Behind Service Centres to ensure that youth are not denied a Scouting experience should unique circumstances exist.
All applications are confidential and only the No One Left Behind Service Centre is aware of the name and personal situation of all applicants. Funding provided is relative to this application only and does not a guarantee future funding. Please re-apply annually.
No One Left Behind Participation subsidies are provided to offset the cost to youth and their families of participating in Scouting activities. Examples include the cost of purchasing uniforms, program materials, outdoor equipment and camp fees.
Groups requiring financial assistance for program-related expenses can now apply for the new Scouting year, starting on January 1st, 2021.
