[September 16 Update] Messages from Area Registrar, Jackson Kwok...
Changes to the NOLB Subsidy Application Process

Beginning this September, Group Commissioners will be empowered to apply directly to the Scouts Canada National Service Centre for No One Left Behind Participation subsidies on behalf of their members; they will no longer apply to their local Service Centre for Council approval. Applications are to be completed by the Group Commissioner.

Also beginning this September, standard No One Left Behind Participation subsidies will only be provided up to $200 per individual applicant. This limit will help Scouts Canada deliver No One Left Behind subsidies to Groups more quickly and efficiently. Subsidy applications that exceed this limit will require additional approval. If an application for No One Left Behind Participation support is approved, a funds transfer will be made to the Group’s bank account.

Updated instructions on how to apply for a No One Left Behind Participation subsidy are available at Scouts.ca.

Scouts Canada provides a two-week advanced registration period for returning members.

From May 1st through May 14th...
Pparents will only be able to renew their children in the same Group in MyScouts.ca so that returning youth can guarantee their place in the Group.

Parents can renew their children in the same Scout Group by logging into their MyScouts account and selecting the renew option beside their child’s name in the ‘My Family’ tab.

After May 14th...
Registering new participants or returning participants in a new Group (i.e. changing to another group) will be available on May 15th and onward.

Parents registering new members after May 14th should do so from the Find a Group feature which can be found at scouts.ca/join.
