Scouts Canada’s Policies and Procedures — Consultation

Welcome to Scouts Canada’s new Policies and Procedures—draft versions. These are not final versions of these new resources. Instead, Scouts Canada is exploring a new approach to introducing practices that will impact the way our members plan, do and review Scouting adventures. We are excited to engage youth and Scouters in the development of these important resources, and we expect that this approach is one that we will use more in the future.

The documents linked from this page have been reviewed extensively by select Group Commissioners and Scouts Canada staff, but they have not yet been formally approved, and do not yet represent requirements for Scouting adventures.

This is your opportunity to read these documents and to provide your feedback—please use the form at the bottom of each resource, and share your thoughts by August 16. We value your feedback, and we will use your constructive criticisms, questions and ideas to make these resources as clear, sensible and robust as possible. Thank you in advance for your contributions.

Together, we can make safe adventures possible for more Canadian Scouting youth.
