415 · Fonds · 1965-2001, chiefly 1972-2001

This fonds consists of 1.65 m of textual records and 44 photographs. The records document the activities of the Northwest Territories Council of the Boy Scouts of Canada/Scouts Canada from its formation in 1972 until 2001. The material has been artificially arranged into five series:

  • Planning, Policy, and Administration includes correspondence, minutes and reports related to the formation of the NWT Scout Council, strategic planning, bylaws, policies and procedures, contracts for services with the Alberta Council, and training of volunteers, as well as general chrono correspondence files.

  • AGMs and Executive Meetings includes agendas, minutes, and other materials related to Annual General Meetings and NWT Scout Council executive meetings.

  • Publications includes newsletters and reports published by the NWT Scout Council.

  • Regions and Local Groups includes documentation of interaction between the NWT Scout Council and regional councils and local scout groups; membership census records and group charters; RCMP returns detailing scouting activity in the communities; and photographs of local group meetings.

  • Projects and Events includes correspondence and reports related to service projects, badges, NWT jamborees, cuborees, regional camps and trips, and interaction between scout groups inside and outside the NWT, as well as photographs of service projects and camps.

It was not possible to reconstruct a single original order for this fonds. It appears that the material was organized different ways at different times, and somefiles from earlier periods may have been carried over to later ones while others were not. In addition, some of the records arrived at the Archives as loose papers. The records have been artificially arranged for ease of access; the material has been organized by type/subject of records, while maintaining as much as possible of the order that was discernible.
