With the launch of the new Shining Waters Council website, this York Headwaters Area website will not be updated any further.
The new SWC website is now hosted under Scouts Canada's portal website. It helps integrate all Area websites and the Council website into a single cohesive site. Moreover, the new Council website links to various sources on the National pages (e.g., the Group Management Playbook and more). More importantly, It leads to a simplified process for everyone to get updated and accurate information.
For Group Commissioners and section scouters' interest, it allows for a single place for Group Health, Events, and Recognition, etc. For parents and members' interest and to serve a much wider audience, local news and information will also be available and promoted through the unified platform.
A direct link to Council Scouttracker's calendar is now availablein the SWC website. It will be the "Single source of truth" for all Council events.
The new SWC website is now the first go-to place for Council updates.
I would like to say Thank-you to those who regularly come visit this website in the past. Thank you for your support and advice when there was a typo or broken links on any pages. Thank you for your patience when the site was once down for a few days. I remember the server-down situation happened two or three times since its first launch in January 2013.
Last but not least, I have to thank all scouters who have regularly provided me with info on events, training and registration.
Wish everyone stays strong, stays healthy and virus-free.

|Nothing is more important to Scouts Canada than the safety and well-being of all youth entrusted to our care. Not only do we have a "duty of care" for youth, Scouters and our staff, but we also have a social responsibility to provide leadership in support of the Government of Canada. As such, Scouts Canada is supporting the direction of government and health agencies in maintaining public health.
All scouting activities will be suspended / postponed , effective Monday, March 16 2020.
