Energizing Communities with Scouts Canada

Our partner in building safe communities

Safety awareness and prevention are not limited to the playing field or workplace—safe living begins at home. As safety leaders in Canada, Hydro One and Scouts Canada have teamed up to extend their culture of safety, healthy activity and vibrant family life to communities across the country. Together we’ve developed new resources and programming to help educate kids and families how to play safe and prevent injuries.

Head Safe program

Launched in the fall of 2019, the Head Safe program provides Ontario communities with training and educational materials aimed at preventing head injury, with engaging digital resources also available for Canadians from coast to coast to coast. Through the program, youth will learn head injury first aid, role play on how to respond to real-life scenarios, and gain understanding of key preventative measures and the necessary steps toward recovery before a safe return to play.

Kids need 60 minutes
of daily outdoor activity

Outdoor recreational activities are a great way to discover new experiences, make memories together and support overall personal well-being. According to Scout Canada's Guide to Resilient Children, outdoor play has been proven to offer a multitude of physical, mental and social benefits for children.

Plan Your Next Adventure

Why is Scouting so important now?

Kids and young adults in Scouts chart their own path of discovery.

Scouting gives kids something to look forward to and a sense of belonging, allowing them to have fun while challenging them to get outside, experience adventure and build resilience.

Scouts Canada is the country’s leading co-ed youth organization, offering programming for children and youth aged 5-26 in multiple languages, reflecting Canada’s multicultural landscape and communities. To ensure the health and safety of the Scouting community, outdoor and virtual Scouting programing (varies by location) is being offered in accordance of local and regional governments and health agencies.
