To contribute to the education of young people through a value system based on the Scout Promise and Law; to help build a better world where people are self-fulfilled as individuals and play a constructive role in society. Scouts Canada’s mission is to help develop well rounded youth who are better prepared for success in the world. Scouting’s mission is achieved by: involving youth throughout their formative years in a non-formal educational process; using a specific method that makes each individual the principal agent in his or her development as a self-reliant, supportive, responsible and committed person; assisting youth to establish a value system based upon spiritual, social and personal principles as expressed in the Promise and Law.
