Member Safety

Committed to safety

26th Halifax places great importance on creating a fun and safe environment for our members, especially children and youth. How do we create this environment? We plan events and activities with safety as a core consideration. Our leaders go through extensive training and background checks, reference checks and interviews. It’s a reflection of the culture of safety that extends throughout the Scouts Canada organization.
