Scouts Canada Programs

For more than 100 years, Scouts Canada has brought a world of adventure, outdoor experience, friendship and fun to 17 million Canadian youth. Scouting makes a difference in the lives of children, youth and young adults. Providing youth-led opportunities, members determine what areas they would like to grow in as they achieve new “firsts” and develop into global citizens.

The Canadian Path

With a versatile array of program areas to focus on, Scouting welcomes youth with diverse interests and goals.

In Canada, we follow a program that's uniquely ours, called The Canadian Path.

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 territory now extending from the British Columbia border to the west to the Saskatchewan border in the east, and in the north including the Northwest Territories and in the south extending to about 20 kilometres south of Red Deer.

Now, one of the one of the largest council territories in Canada, our 22 service areas include cities such as Edmonton, St. Albert, Grande Prairie, and Yellowknife--as well as dozens of small communities and rural centres.

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.
