If you are a registered member with Scouts Canada – Boy Scouts of America –Canadian Guiding – Girl Scouts USA you will have your own versions of child protection. We need verification of your membership number and record showing that you are members in good standing for 2013-2014  and compliant in the volunteer screening process for your particular Scouting organization.

 

The Scouts Canada Volunteer Screening policy is the only guideline we will follow for the protection of our youth. To assist you in achieving the level of compliance required by Scouts Canada we are attaching links to the Child and Youth Safety video and the Accessibility Training. (For Scouts Canada members access these videos through your myscouts account this way training will be updated in your system.)
