Council Team

The Pacific Coast Council provides support and guidance to groups and coordinates Scouter Development opportunities. The Council also coordinates larger events such as multi-group events including Beaverees, Cuborees or Jamborees.

Learn about the Pacific Coast Council team, who we are, and how it is managed below.

Council Key 3

The Pacific Coast Council is managed by two volunteers (the Council Commissioner and the Council Youth Commissioner) and one employee (the Scouting Relationship Manager) collectively known as the Council Key 3 (CK3). 

The Council Commissioner is responsible for all aspects of program implementation, delivery, service, and support, as well as the implementation of Scouts Canada's policies. The Council Youth Commissioner is responsible for providing direction, counsel, and support to the youth within the council. The Scouting Relationship Manager is responsible for fostering membership growth and providing support to volunteers to enhance program quality and safety throughout the council. All three work as a team to manage the council and provide support to our volunteers province-wide to deliver fun, safe Scouting adventures!
