The 3rd Ottawa Group is part of the Heritage Area, Voyageur Council of Scouts Canada. As such, our annual fees are determined in part by the fees levied by Scouts Canada on our group, which largely cover insurance and head office costs. In addition, we pay a small fee annually to our sponsor, Westminster Presbyterian Church, which we also build into our fees. The registration fee for your youth changes from year to year and we post information about the fees here.
Scouts Canada programs are applicable to the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit offered by the Federal Government. This credit was set at $1,000 per youth starting in the 2014 tax year per claimant, and you will receive a tax receipt for claiming the fees you have paid against this credit. Please see the CRA site for the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit for more information.
