Overview of Council Structure
Scouts Canada has twenty geographic Councils, each of which is managed by a Council Commissioner, Council Youth Commissioner, and Council Executive Director, who together make up the Key 3 who report to Scouts Canada's National Operations via the Executive Commissioner and Chief Executive Officer.
A Council’s prime focus will be membership development. Councils will also provide support to Areas in the delivery of program activities, including recruitment of youth, starting new Groups and program support. Councils are based on membership and ability to service. Councils are created, deleted and changed as per By-Law No. 2.
Though most Councils are designed to capture the entire province, this is not the case in British Columbia, Alberta, and Ontario. Several decades ago, when Scouts Canada was a federated structure, Councils (then referred to as Regions) reported to the Provincial Council, who reported to the EC/CEO.
