Covid Update October 24th, 2020

Dear Scouters,

Following the guidance from public health authorities in Quebec, we continue to recommend virtual programming for all Scouting activities.

We recognize that this pause has impacted fall plans and we sincerely hope we will be able to safely return to in-person activities soon. In the mean time, we encourage all of our members to participate in our monthly virtual events.  Each month from now until June 2021 we will be hosting a virtual event that you can participate in with your Section, or on your own.  Each event will earn you a piece of a crest that will tell everyone that you had fun in Scouting this year!  Our first event for Halloween will take place on Friday October 30, 2020!!

Looking for other ideas for what your Sections could get up to during the in-person pause? Why not check out our second Pause Café Scouts in November?  Come and share program ideas, and learn form what others have been doing?   For a sneak peak, check out what the Trois Rivières Scouters have been putting together, https://gr1ertr.wixsite.com/scouts1ertr/activitesvirscoutsaventuriers

This message, as with our previous emails, will be made available on our on our Facebook page.

Thank you once again for all that you’ve done, all that you continue to do, and for all that you contribute to Scouting.

Yours in Scouting,

Hello Québec Council!

painted pumpkin faces

We might be missing our weekly meetings where we can all gather, but we have come up with a fun idea that will let us all celebrate Scouting together!

So here goes! From now until June 2021 we will be hosting a virtual event each month that you can all participate in.

Each event will earn you a piece of a crest that will tell everyone that you had fun in Scouting this year!

Look for more exciting news in the days to come with our first event for Halloween to take place on Friday October 29, 2020!!

Hope to see you all there!!

Scouts Canada Annual General Meeting

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to let you know the Scouts Canada Annual General Meeting is taking place in Montreal this Saturday Nov 17 at the Hyatt Regency.

The meeting starts at 2:00 and is open to everyone, there will also be a trade show afterwards. Scouters from across Canada will be there so it is a pretty neat event.

If you would like to come down, the address is 1255 Jeanne-Mance St, Montreal, QC H5B 1E5

Best bet is to take avantage of public transport as there is a Santa Clause parade happening downtown also. There are 2 metro stations close by at Place-des-Arts (Green line) and Place-d’Armes (Orange line).

Hope to see some of you there,
