The Council Youth Commissioner chairs Council Youth Forum and is responsible for providing direction, counsel and support to the Youth within the Council. The Council Relationship Manager is responsible for all non-program functions that provide support to the program and program delivery.

Tonille Mallette Council Relationship Manager Northern Lights Council - Scouts Canada
Tonille Mallette
Council Relationship Manager

Tonille started her Scouting career when her youngest son expressed an interest in joining Scouts in 2015. Always eager to lend a hand, she soon began helping her home group at the Group Committee level. After witnessing the amazing opportunities Scouting provided the youth in St Albert, she applied for a position with NLC in 2017.

Tonille believes in providing youth with varied experiences to help them develop into well-rounded individuals better prepared for success and loves that Scouting provides a safe environment for youth to F.A.I.L--First Attempt In Learning. Tonille considers having the courage to try new things, fail, and try again as one of the most important skills we as Scouters can pass onto the youth. Some of the best inventions and experiences have come from situations initially considered to be failures--the pacemaker, WD-40, and synthetic dyes, to name a few.

Tonille loves the outdoors and when she isn't in the office she can be found hiking or camping with her family and their fluffy Golden Retriever, Davos.

Norm Kerr Council Commissioner Northern Lights Council - Scouts Canada
Norm Kerr
Council Commissioner

Norm started in Scouting as a youth in Brooks, Alberta more years ago then he will admit. He rejoined Scouting as a volunteer with Fort Saskatchewan Scouts when his son, Chris, joined Scouting. Later, Norm took on roles with Horse Hills Area as a Support Scouter and then Area Commissioner for Horse Hills Area before being appointed as NLC Council Commissioner.

Norm believes in the goal of Scouts Canada being a Youth-Led organization. Right from the start, Lord Baden-Powell’s vision for Scouting was of a program in which the youth took responsibility for their activities and adventures. Scouts play the most important role within their Sections, and at Scouts Canada youth are given the opportunity to create their own path to reach their goals.

Professionally, Norm spent over 35 years working with telecommunications and information technology teams ending as a systems and sales engineering specialist.

Norm is an enthusiastic motorcyclist and camper. He lives in Fort Saskatchewan with his wife, Susan, a passionate Scouter.
