We are adjusting our Registration Fee to $50. The Award program in Canada is growing! We are reaching more youth and giving more young Canadians the opportunity to become the best they can be. In the effort to remain relevant to our Participants and Award Leaders, we continue to improve our support for youth and enhance our digital tools and online resources to keep our program current and readily available. We are increasing our registration fee to $50 as of July 1st, 2018 to ensure the sustainability of the organisation.
What is Passion to purpose?  
Passion to purpose is a joint effort between the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award - Canada and the Canada Service Corp to foster civic engagement within our county's youth. Through three youth-led forums held over a period of two years, our program will foster engagement and leadership growth in Canadian youth from across the country. Participants will be inspired by keynote speakers, take part in workshops, team building exercises, and outdoor activities that will develop their passions for change into concrete action plans that can be executed within their communities.

Join The Great Scouting Adventure Challenge - May 26

Scouts Canada is holding The Great Scouting Adventure Challenge, a free public family event for youth ages 5-14 on Saturday, May 26. Scouts and non-Scouts alike can hone their outdoor, survival, STEM (science, technology engineering, mathematics), teamwork and leadership skills by completing a series of fun challenges.
Youth will be put to the test with activities such as creating a shelter, fire building, making slingshots and testing their accuracy, building and testing a miniature dam, basic first aid, planning a healthy camp meal and more. Plus there will be fun games, face painting, crafts, Kub Kar races, exciting prizes, and the opportunity to make new friendships. There's something for every skill level and age.
WHEN:  Saturday, May 26,2018
11am - 5pm

We strive to be the best because you deserve the best!
