First Aid Standards and First Aid Training
Scouts Canada Policies - First Aid Standards
effective September 1, 2019

Scouts Canada is committed to fun, safe adventures. Every Scouting adventure requires an emergency response plan, which will include first aid and emergency medical care coverage. Individuals/groups can look into First Aid training on their own if they do not already have their certification or take advantage of one of the training courses listed below.

Standard First Aid (SFA) - This is usually what would be needed for Scouters leading a Beaver or Cub section; provided the activity is not more than two hours from medical care.
Emergency First Aid As of September 1st (for now, any way), Emergency FA is the minimum standard for hosting meetings and for outings that are 30 minutes from a medical facility. It is also wise to remind Scouters and Youth to make sure they are taking FA courses with CPR Level C as this includes infant, youth and adult specific training while CPR Level A only covers adults.
Wilderness & Remote First Aid (WRFA ) - No course prerequisite, for activities that are more than two hours from medical care.
Advanced Wilderness & Remote First Aid (AWRFA) - Course prerequisite is WRFA, for activities that are more than four hours from medical care.
