From girls learning to bandage wounds during the First World War to girls today working on their anti-bullying badge, the Girl Guides of Canada program is always growing and changing to reflect the needs and interests of present girls and women. The program is helping the next generation of Canadian girls become confident, courageous and resourceful leaders.
In the beginning
In 1909, girls in England were demanding that they be able to take part in a Boy Scouts rally organized by Lord Baden-Powell in London. He was so impressed so he asked his sister, Agnes, to create a program just for girls.
Girls Guides of Canada continues to be a place that encourages girls to use their imagination, find their place in the world and to do things that matter to them. The adult members are female role models for the younger girls. They support the younger ones to achieve and succeed, through fun, adventures and challenges.
