Introduction

Scouts Canada does not discriminate for reasons of sexual orientation or gender identity BP&P. As such, leaders who may or may not have very much experience or knowledge in the area of sexual orientation or gender identity issues may find themselves facing a situation in which they need to confront them, either from youth participants or adult volunteers. This page contains resources that may be useful not only in approaching these issues properly and respectfully, but also in demonstrating Scouting's solidarity with sexual minority communities of Canadians.
