Scouts Canada recognizes the significant contributions Volunteers and Scouters make in guiding youth as they pursue their personal progression through the Canadian Path program. Our Scouters form a partnership with youth motivating them to discover their independence and capability through an engaged Scouting experience.
It is due to the hard work of our Scouters that we see Scouts Canada’s Vision of Canadian youth making a meaningful contribution to creating a better world come to fruition. Every year Scouters across the nation go above and beyond to ensure youth have great, safe adventures, while also developing into confident, capable individuals.
There are many ways to acknowledge the contribution of a Scouts Canada member:
- Instant reactions
- Informal Awards
- Council Specific Awards
- Outstanding Service Awards
- Nomination Based Awards
- Years of Service
Recognition is inherently personal, and Commissioners are in the best position to judge what form of recognition will have the biggest impact for their Volunteers.
