Spring Registration 2017-18: How You Can Help

 

Currently, there are two options for registration:

For 2017-18 (next Scouting year), the method of registration will be Self-Registration for all members: participants and volunteers; community and LDS Groups.

To ensure as smooth a transition as possible, we need you!

 

Online Self-Registration

 

  • Completed online by individual Rover Scouts and adult volunteers, and by parents (for both participants and volunteers under 18 years of age)
  • Paid online directly to Scouts Canada by credit or debit card (for participants from Beaver through Venturer Scouts) OR
  • For LDS Church participant registrations completed with coupon codes, paid by Stake cheque upon receipt of invoices from the Service Centre

 

 

Traditional (paper-based) Registration

 

  • Completed and signed by parents (for both participants and volunteers under 18 years of age), individual Rover Scouts and adult volunteers
  • Submitted with payment by cash, cheque, or money order to Groups (for participants from Beaver Scouts through to Venturer Scouts)
  • Used by Group Registrars who complete data entry into myscouts
  • Submitted to Service Centre

Traditional registration is being phased out now.

  • Complete the Group Financial Information Request Form (FILLABLE)
  • Send the completed form with a void cheque to Tania Burns using one of the delivery options included on the form.

 

 

 

 

 

I’m a Group Registrar or Commissioner. How can I help?

 

 

  • Ensure that your Group "Organization Details" are accurate and up-to-date – including the "Primary Contact".
  • Verify that each Section’s “Organization Details” and “Meeting Details” are accurate and up-to-date – including the "Primary Contact".
  • Set up Group fees (even if your Group does not charge an additional amount above the National fee – in which case you should input “$0”.
  • Activate online Registration.
  • Check to be sure that your Sections show “Register a Volunteer” and “Register a Participant” in Find a Group searches.
  • Enlist others to help; encourage parents to do their parts.
  • If you have problems with any of the above, contact pat.papineau@scouts.ca or slee@scouts.ca for help.

 

 

 

 

 

I’m a Section volunteer. How can I help?

 

 

  • Log into your myscouts profile.
  • Click on “Find a Group” near the top right corner of the page to verify that your Section appears in the search results.
  • If it does not appear, check:
    • Your “Organization Details” to make sure the Section status is “Active” and there’s a valid address including postal code
    • Your “Meeting Details” to make sure you have “Max Participant” and “Max Volunteer” numbers
  • Encourage parents to do their parts.
  • If you have problems with any of the above, contact your Group Registrar or Commissioner or pat.papineau@scouts.ca or slee@scouts.ca for help.

 

 

 

 

I’m a parent. How can I help?

 

  • Log into your myscouts profile.
  • Ensure the account has your date of birth. Click on “Contact Info” to edit this space and other personal details.
  • Verify that your child or children appear(s) on your “My Family” tab.
  • If you have problems with any of the above, contact your Group Registrar or Commissioner or pat.papineau@scouts.ca or slee@scouts.ca for help.

 

 

 

 

My child is and/or I’m part of an LDS Group. How will this affect me?

 

  • LDS parents can register their children using Self-Registration too. The key difference: you will be provided with a “coupon code” to defer payment (which will be submitted on your child’s behalf through/by your Stake).
  • LDS volunteers will also be able to use Self-Registration.
