About Quebec Scouts Council

PDF version

We are the Quebec Council of Scouts Canada – a dynamic youth serving movement of and for youth founded in 1907, a member of the world organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM). Come and discover how our exciting, entertaining and co-educational programs have been enriching the lives of youth, young adults and adults in Canada and around the world for more than 100 years.


Scouts Canada is a co-ed organization run by volunteers for youths from ages 5 to 26. Its diverse outdoor program, leadership training opportunities, and focus on values provide a strong foundation for young Canadians to learn new skills and meet new friends in a fun environment.

Typically, Scout Groups meet once a week in a local Scout hall, Church hall, or community centre to learn new skills and earn badges. Its volunteer leaders are highly trained and experienced in outdoor skills, leadership, and child care, and these leaders usually take the youths on outings once every couple months. Younger children might have opportunities to tour the local fire hall, have sleepovers at the aquarium, go to the indoor climbing gym, and camp overnight at nearby sites. Older youth take on more challenging activities, such as full-fledged backpacking expeditions or multi-day tours in a canoe or kayak. Through these activities, participants gain self-confidence, build their independence, and become proficient in new skills.

Founded by Lord Robert Baden-Powell in 1906, Scouting has since expanded all across the globe to encompass 216 countries and territories. In Canada, Scouting is divided into five co-ed Program Sections to accommodate different age groups.

  • Beavers (5-7 years old)
  • Cubs (8-10 years old)
  • Scouts (11-14 years old, option to remain until 16 years old)
  • Venturers (14-18 years old)
  • Rovers (18-26 years old)

Scout programs are entirely run by volunteer leaders, typically young adults and parents of participants. We provide all necessary leadership, safety, and outdoor training to our leaders, so enthusiasm, ability to work with children, and a willingness to learn are all that’s needed to become a leader.
