Scout Uniforms

The Scout Uniform

Where do all these badges go? It’s a question many first time Scouts and parents of Scouts (who generally have access to the sewing machine!) ask of the leaders. The Canadian Scout Handbook contains information about insignia, and the location of the various badges. We have found that colour helps in the descriptions, and certainly seeing where the badges go will assist you.

Additional uniform information can be found on the main Scouts Canada Uniform page.

Your necker is red, and the 3rd Ottawa insignia (the orange fleur-de-lis) goes at the point of the necker in the back. The necker is rolled from the hypoteneuse towards the 45-degree point.

The Area and Council Crests are specific to our Area (Heritage Area) and our Council (Voyageur) within Scouts Canada.  They help identify our youth and leaders in Provincial, National and International events.

Scouts Canada will in the future be merging the “Ontario” and “Voyageur Council” crests into a single crest that will fit on the left sleeve of the uniform.  For now, these two crests are sewn side-by-side at the top of the left sleeve.

The 3rd Ottawa affixes our Group Crest to the back of the necker, so there is no need to attach it to the sleeve of the uniform, nor do you need to leave space for it.
