Elections

Call for Nominations Council Voting Members for the 2019-20 Scouting Year 
 
Scouts Canada is a corporation created by an Act of Parliament. Each Council has a say in the governance processes of the corporation through three voting members who are elected pursuant to Election of Voting Members Policy. All Scouts Canada members born before December 31, 2005 are eligible to serve as Voting Members and to vote for their Council’s Voting Members.
 
The Voting Members represent Councils at the Scouts Canada Annual General Meeting and vote on a series of governance resolutions, including the election of the Board of Governors. They also, represent their Councils at Special Meetings, if one is called during their term. Council Voting Members are elected for a one year term (June 21, 2019 to June 20, 2020). One of the three Voting Member positions is reserved for a youth member, but it should be noted that all three Voting Members from a Council may be youth members. By-law defines youth members as those who are under the age of 27 years on September 1, 2019.
 
The 2018 Annual General Meeting will be held on November 16, 2019 in Ottawa. Councils may ask their Voting Members to attend by webcast, video conference, or teleconference. Online voting facilities are made available for this purpose.
