Since 1910, Girl Guides of Canada has been a trailblazing movement advocating for girl and women, providing them with opportunities to discover new interests and develop leader skills. One hundred years agi, the first Canadian Guiding unit was formed in St. Catharines, Ontario, and today there are units in every province and territory.
Throughout its history, Guiding has prepared girls to meet challenges they face through a variety of activities including camping and outdoor advanture. Today, girls can learn about global and cultural awareness, career ecploration, science and technology, and the arts. They work on environmental projects and explore important issues, such as cyber-bullying, self- esteem and body image. Trough these activities, they develop the skills needed to speak out and take action on issues that are important to them. Guiding enables girls to be confident, courageous and resourceful , and to make a difference in the world
