Scouts Canada - Mission Statement

To contribute to the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities through the application of our Principles and Practices.

Thank you for your support. of the new group registration process, implemented this year. Especially we thank the group committee members and in some cases section Scouters, who submitted and reviewed their registration documentation at our area registration day and the region registration nights. Due to your commitment, every group in the Sunnybrook Area was registered by December 1, 1999. Well done! We appreciate your comments and suggestions to improve the process for registrations in 2000/2001

Area Youth Representative
The Greater Toronto Region (GTR) has a very active and involved Youth forum. The Chair of the forum is a member of the Region Key 4, with the Regional President, the Regional Commissioner and the Regional Executive. Three members of the Youth Forum Executive are voting members on the Regional Executive Committee. The forum is comprised of youth, usually Venturers and Rovers, within GTR from the twelve areas and the forum executive is nominated from these representatives. At present, the Sunnybrook Area is not represented on the Regional Youth Forum. We have opportunities for interested youth to be involved with the decision making process which will affect the members of our area as well as the region. Advisors, please ensure that your Companies and Crews are aware of these opportullities.

Toronto Star Santa Claus Fund
Again, during the Christmas season, Scouts Canada Greater Toronto Region volunteered to assist the Toronto Star with their Santa Claus Fund Program. Our youth, leaders and parent helpers delivered over 18,000 "Star Santa Boxes" to needy youngsters throughout the city. For some, these were the only presents they received. The groups in the Sunnybrook Area continue to be active and important members of the worthwhile community service project. The Toronto Star, the coordinating committee, your service team and Santa thank you for your valued participation and for putting our Mission Statement into practice.
