History

Scouts Canada announced March 4, 2011 a partnership with Avectra to begin development of the new AMS.[1] Testing by various members vertically and horizontally across the organization participated in January of 2012 with testing the system and providing feedback to the development team. The ultimate migration from the MMS to the new AMS occurred on March 19, 2012 for all members.

myScouts has received a number of important updates since its first introduction. A large extent of the changes relate to the coding of myScouts; however, there have been some major changes to address the development of new policies and functionality to support other Action Plan items. For example, myScouts now supports the recognition program.
