Registration cost/fee FAQ


  1. What is the National Fee?
  2. What are Group Fees?
  3. Are any subsidies available?



Costs vary from group to group so your local contact is the best one to advise you. In most cases there will be a registration fee to join the group and you will have to pay for your uniform. As the year progresses there may be extra costs associated with camping, special events, etc. 

Scouts Canada divides its fees into two portions,


The National Fee: $200 per year per child.

  • A $50 discount is automatically applied to all registrations made after December 31st 2016.


The Group Fee

  • Groups have the opportunity to levy an additional fee on top of the National if their programs costs are higher (i.e. rental fee's for regular meeting space or program materials). The typical range for this amount is in the range of $0-$50 per year per child.

If you prefer a specific idea of cost before signing up please connect with your local group, using the Find a Group Locator, to inquire about how much your Scouting experience will cost. 



Scouts Canada offers a subsidy through the 'No One Left Behind' program, to families where financial barriers exist. The goal is to ensure more Canadian youth have access to fun and safe Scouting adventures. To inquire about eligibility and to apply for this subsidy, please email
