Thank You for your demonstration of resiliency as we adjust to our environment by pressing pause on in-person Scouting and return to virtual meetings. Being an example of adaptability is another way you are contributing to preparing youth for success in the world. Guiding them to navigate risk, stress and challenges will contribute to the development of resilient youth who will become resilient adults.
We know that this pause comes with significant uncertainty about when in-person activities will resume and when it will be safe to re-engage in delivering fantastic outdoor programming to our members. To ensure that all Scouters in Quebec Council are provided with up-to-date information on our COVID response, we will be providing regular updates to all Scouters until we are able to return to Stage 2 activities and plans. These messages will continue to be emailed to all Scouters and will also be posted on our Council’s Facebook page.
While we previously stated that a decision would be made as of October 16 whether in-person activities will resume, this message confirms that we will pause in-person activities until further notice. We will be following the advice of federal, provincial, and municipal authorities and health agencies throughout this process, as we have from the onset of COVID earlier this year.
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,
