Registration for the 2018-2019 Scout year opened May 1, 2018 for returning members, and May 15th, 2018 for new members. Registration covers over 9 months of fun and adventure. Programs start again in the fall, mid- September and continue until June 2019.
Online Self Registration – Parents register online, using the Scouts Canada registration website (www.myScouts.ca). Many sections fill up before September and parents are encouraged to register early (early registrations before July 1st save $50).
Scouting is a volunteer run organization, and we cannot run our programs without energetic and enthusiastic adult leaders. Adult registration is free, and we provide all of the necessary training. It is a great way to give back to your community.
Beavers: Age 5 to 7 years
Cubs: Age 8 to 10 years
Scouts: Age 11 to 14 years

Exceptions to the age guidelines can be made based on maturity and/or special needs of the youth involved. Such exceptions should be discussed with the Group Commissioner.

We are always looking for parents to volunteer as leaders, to help run our Scouting programs. Past experience is not required, and we provide all the necessary training and mentoring to introduce and integrate new leaders to Scouting.
In an effort to further increase youth safety and security in Scouting programs, Scouts Canada requires that volunteers complete the following items before they will be allowed to wear a Scout Leader uniform and provide programs to youth:
- Register as a Volunteer online at myscouts.ca (online)
- Complete Volunteer Screening including Reference Checks and Interview (in-person)
- Have a valid Police Records Check for the Vulnerable Sector (online)
- Sign and abide by the Scouts Canada Volunteer Code of Conduct (online)
- Complete RESPECT training (online)
- Complete Canadian Path Woodbadge 1 training (online)
Some of these items can take several weeks or more to complete. We encourage leaders to enrol in the Spring to allow enough time for the screening to be completed before programs start in September.
There are no costs associated with leader registrations.
Please contact the Group Commissioner for more information.
