Registration Information

2016/17 - WE ARE OPEN FOR REGISTRATION: New and Returning Members - places are filling fast

Existing members of 1st Kanata Scout Group:  from  2 May 2016, we will be accepting registrations for existing members of 1st Kanata Scout Group to all of our sections.   We strongly encourage you all to register on line using your MyScouts.ca account. By registering now, you will receive a $20 discount and have a greater chance of securing a place in your Section of choice.   Your renewed membership will be valid for the year from 1 September 2016 to 31 August 2017; your existing membership will be valid till the end of the current scouting year - 31 August 2016.   You have 2 weeks before registration is open to new members; once that happens, there is no guarantee that you will get a place.  SIGN IN to MyScouts and go to the MyFamily Tab to register.   See the pdf Guide below - go straight to Step 8 - for full details.

New to Scouting?  If you want to join scouting for the first time, you will be able to register from 15 May and your membership will be active immediately that means you can go to meetings and join in the summer program; your membership will take you through to 31 August 2017 (15 months).

Renewing and moving from another Group.  If you are currently in a different Group and want to join 1st Kanata from next scouting year, you will be able to register from 15 May.

Need Financial Help?  The scouting experience is accessible to any family in financial need.  This year subsidies are available through the National office under the No One Left Behind (NOLB) program.  Please visit this link before starting the online registration process.  If you wish to seek additional subsidies which may be available for registration and section activities, please contact the Registrar@1stKanataScouts.org in confidence.  If you intend to use the NOLB scheme, please would you let the Registrar know.
