All Sections

There are a number of resources available to aid the implementation of the Four Elements and to further understand the origins of the Canadian Path.

Program Quality Guide

The new Program Quality Guide has arrived! They have been completely revitalized to work hand in hand with The Canadian Path. Standards are broken down to bring youth aboard the evaluation process. After all, The Canadian Path is their program.

Use the standards to create an awesome Scouting program! Have open discussions guided by the assessment questions to help your program move forward. Be honest, and challenge yourselves as a Section to live up to your own expectations for a great, safe Scouting program.

Transition Goals for 2016–17

This handy infographic lays out the youth and Scouter goals for the 2016–17 Scouting Year.

Badges ≠ Personal Progression

For a long time now our members have been focused on earning badges, and using badges as a means of judging personal progression. This is not an ideal approach. What we are really after is to ensure that Scouts are engaged in activities that have them learn by doing.

In-Section Training

The Support Scouter and Plan-Do-Review

This in-Section training is intended for use by Support Scouters to enable them to work directly with a Scout Group Section to demonstrate elements of The Canadian Path. Through this in-person workshop, the Support Scouter will demonstrate and explain the process of Plan-Do-Review for Section Scouters in their meeting environment and give them an opportunity to try out the mode. This occurs in a very supportive environment, as the Section Scouters have opportunities to ask questions during the demonstration and in the review that follows the meeting. Through the exercises, the Section Scouters will also see the interrelatedness of all the elements of The Canadian Path.
