The Canadian Path introduced the Top Section Awards so that youth in every Section have a cumulative award to work towards. In the spirit of youth-led Scouting, Section Leadership Teams have been tasked with approving Top Section Awards for their Sections.
As part of this new Group-centric approach to Top Section Awards, MyScouts.ca will be updated to allow Group Commissioners and Group Registrars to add Top Section Award records to youth’s profiles.
This article focuses on the administrative aspect of this process for Group Registrars and Group Commissioners.
For detailed information on the Top Section Awards see FAQ Top Section Awards
