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, the country’s leading youth organization, offers challenging programs for boys, girls and youth age 5-26 in thousands of individual groups in most cities and towns across Canada.
