Scouts Canada has a wide range of awards and pins to show thanks to its volunteers but it needs you to initiate the process. You can suggest a name, write out what you know about the Scouting efforts of the individual, then submit it to the committee for consideration. For more information about awards, contact Terry Eldridge.
