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.
