2017 Scout Elections

Scouts Canada is a corporation created by an Act of Parliament. Each Council has a say in the governance processes of the corporation through three voting members who are elected pursuant to Policy 1014. All Scouts Canada members born before December 31, 2003 are eligible to serve as Voting Members and to vote for their Council’s Voting Members.

The Voting Members represent Councils at the Scouts Canada Annual General Meeting and vote on a series of governance resolutions, including the election of the Board of Governors. One of the three Voting Member positions is reserved for a youth member, but it should be noted that all three Voting Members from a Council may be youth members. By-law No. 2 defines youth members as those who are under the age of 27 years on September 1, 2017.

Your role in this process is to nominate up to three Scouting members, at least one of which is a youth member, to represent “ Your Council” at the 2017 Annual General Meeting which will be held on November 18, 2017 in Toronto. Councils may ask their Voting Members to attend by webcast, video conference, or teleconference.

On-line voting facilities will be available for this purpose. A copy of the Nomination Form in a “fillable Form” format can be found on the Scouts Canada website. The scouts.ca website also contains additional information regarding the election process.

Each Council has a Deputy Elections Officer. Should you have any questions feel free to contact the DEO for your Council.

The Deputy Election Officers for BC/Yukon Councils are:

Fraser Valley Council:  Pete Ballantyne. Text 604-817-1294.

Pacific Coast Council:  Verna Adamson

Cascadia Council: Bill Schulte

Scouts Canada STEM at Vancouver Mini Maker Faire 2016

Scouts Canada STEM was represented at the Vancouver Mini Maker Faire held at Pacific National Exhibition Forum hall on June 11 and 12th, 2016.  The Maker Faire is a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.  Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow the community.

This is the second year that Scouts Canada STEM has sponsored a booth offering hands on activities and presenting promotional materials.  This year we attracted both kids and adults with our LED light giveaway, light seeking robots, world’s smallest arcade and Scouts Canada robots.  On display were some of Scouts Canada STEM examples of activities such as the Space Exploration kit and solar cars.

This year was quite successful with the event posting the largest attendance ever of over 5000 attendees.  Scouts Canada STEM estimates that over 350 Scouts business cards were handed out.  Many families were introduced to Scouts Canada and others were impressed that Scouts were offering STEM activities.  Many exhibitors or attendees have or have had a Scouting background.  Scouts that are attracted to making and exploring things fit into the Maker movement.  Likewise kids who want to explore things will be attracted to the Scouting movement.
