Every year, Scouts Canada’s fundraising campaigns help support local Groups in their Scouting adventures and provide funds for the No One Left Behind Program. After a successful introduction last season, Scouts Canada & Equator Coffee Roasters have teamed up again to offer really, good coffee that is fair trade, certified organic, and roasted right here in Canada! It's also a great, gift idea and with the holidays around the corner, Scout Coffee is a wonderful way to thank emplyees, co-workers, teachers and everyone else we appreciate and cherish in our lives. The best part, 35% of Scout Coffee sales go back to local Scouting Groups to fund their adventures and over 5% directly supports the No One Left Behind Program!
Congratulations to all our youth sections for their successful applications to the Grizzly Den Program for 2022-2023. With the generous support of Scouts Canada and Hydro One, our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Venturer sections were each awarded funding for an adventure of their choice, and a chance to experience the fun and memories associated with Scouting. Our Troop Scouts experienced an amazing backcountry, camping trip in the Massasauga Provincial Park. Scouting youth accessed their camp by canoes and spent two nights under the stars. In part one of their planned adventure, our Sea Venturers paddled the Humber river to practise for their kayak trip in September. The Grizzly Den Program is truly a unique opportunity Scouts Canada, along with our generous sponsor Hydro One, have created to encourage and support as many safe, outdoor adventures to as many Scouting youth in Ontario as possible. Please see the gallery below for more photos of the Grizzly Den Experiences our youth have participated in. More information about the Grizzly Den Program can be found through the link below.
If there is one thing we learn in Scouting, it is to always be prepared. As Canadians, we should also be prepared since emergencies can happen at any time and often without warning. With a little preparation, you can respond quickly to help yourself and others. You should be ready and understand the risks in your area, create a household emergency plan and build an emergency kit. Check out the link below for more information to ensure you are prepared for possible emergencies. Please share this message with your family and friends.
In 2007, Scouts Canada launched the No One Left Behind program to ensure every youth is provided an opportunity to experience new adventures with community Scout groups. Through the No One Left Behind program, membership fees and related costs are subsidized for youth from families facing economic barriers. To date, 4,388 youth have experienced amazing Scouting adventures with the help of this resource, made possible by sponsors like you. Dealing with COVID has been tough, especially on kids and young adults and Scouting is needed now more than ever.

Our incredible team of Venturer Sea Scouts placed first with their submission to the City of Mississauga's Climate Change Youth Challenge! The Mission to Earth Climate Change Youth Challenge engaged youth across Mississauga to get involved and help solve some of the biggest climate concerns facing our city. Youth teams were tasked with creating innovative solutions that could transform Mississauga into a climate resilient city by both mitigating and adapting to climate change. The Youth Challenge was open to you highschool and post-secondary youth in the community. We are very proud of our Scout Team's success in their contribution to help protect our planet!
