The Passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

September 08, 2022

Scouts Canada extends its deepest sympathy upon the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen ascended the throne at a young age and devoted her life to public and voluntary service which she saw as one of the most important elements of her work.

The Queen had links - as Royal Patron or President - with over 600 charities, including Scouts.

Of Scouts the Queen once said “Scouting is a global force for good. In this country and around the world, Scouts are helping others and making the most of their lives.”

Please read this tribute from Chief Ambassador of World Scouting, Bear Grylls, to her extraordinary service.

An official Memorial Badge for HM the Queen has been created by Scouts UK and will be available through Scouts Canada’s Scout Shop for $2.49CAD each, more information coming soon. 

The Badge may be worn for a period of three months on uniform.
