About Northern Lights Council
In September 2000 the Edmonton and Northern Alberta Regions together with parts of Central Alberta came together as the Northern Lights Region. The new Region extended from the British Columbia border to the west to the Saskatchewan border in the east. In the north it included the North West Territories and in the south it extended to about 20 kilometres south of Red Deer. A further change took place in late 2003 when the Northern Lights Region was reorganized as the Northern Lights Council.
Scouts Canada is the country’s leading youth organization. For more than 100 years, we have brought a world of adventure, outdoor experience and friendship to 17 million Canadian youth.
Scouts have a lot of fun discovering new things and experiences they wouldn’t have elsewhere. Along the way they develop into capable, confident and well-rounded individuals, better prepared for success in the world.
Scouting offers a world where you can discover the best in yourself and the best in others. Dollar for dollar, our programs provide significant value. They run all year round and offer adventures that youth will remember for a lifetime!
With more than 100,000 members, Scouts Canada is the nation’s premier youth-serving organization.
With every new member, with every camp and every community service project, Scouts Canada makes one simple promise to Canadian youth, parents and society:
Scouts have fun adventures
discovering new things and experiences
they wouldn’t discover elsewhere.
Along the way they develop into capable,
confident and well-rounded individuals,
better prepared for success in the world.
Scouts is the start of something great.
It starts with Scouts.
