Membership Fees for 2019 – 20
Youth who register during spring registration, May 1st – June 30th, 2019, will receive a spring registration discount of $30with registration totaling $200.
We are pleased to provide a two-week advanced registration period for returning members. From May 1 through May 14th, parents will only be able to renew their children in the same Group in MyScouts.ca so that returning youth can guarantee their place in the Group. Registering new participants or returning participants in a new Group will be available on May 15th. Groups will still be able to register both new and returning Scouts. After June 30th, the 2019-20 Scouts Canada membership fee will return to $230.
New this year,
Scouts Canada will be changing its refund policy to provide consistency year -around. In line with other youth organizations, parents can be provided with a 100% refund within 30 days of the registration date upon request. No refund will be issued if requested after 30 days of registration date. Please refer to Scouts Canada’s refund policy
for more information.
Allowing youth to start their Scouting adventure immediately
Starting May 15th, new Scouts may register for the 2019 – 20 Scouting year and also receive complimentary membership for the current year if a summer program is available.
MyScouts.ca will indicate whether a Section is offering summer programming upon registration.
The ‘Trending Articles’ in the Online Support Centre are also a great resource for information on the upcoming registration period, including step-by step guides on registering a first time participant and a check list for the registration period.
The Scouter Membership Process
As with previous years, Scouters who wish to continue Scouting next year will not be required to submit an application form. However, they will need to have their Commissioner agree to their appointment for the next Scouting year and meet Scouts Canada’s conditions of membership. All Scouters will receive an email in late May asking if they wish to continue volunteering in the 2019 - 20 Scouting Year. The email will also have a link for the Scouter to withdraw next year if they wish. If a Scouter opts out for 2019 – 20, their membership with Scouts Canada will lapse on August 31st, 2019.
Once again, thank you for your contributions to the Scouting movement. You are truly making a difference in the lives of youth nation-wide.
Yours in Scouting,
