Where an election is required in a Council, Scouts Canada uses the Scottish Single Transferrable Vote system where voters rank candidates in order of preference. This means that second, third and fourth place ranking of candidates is used to determine who will be elected. The conducting of the voting and tabulation is outsourced to a third party organization.

All Ordinary Members born on or before December 31, 2007 may participate in electing their Council’s Voting Representatives. Voting will be online through MyScouts.ca; please ensure that your MyScouts account is current. Detailed instructions as to how to vote will be distributed closer to the date of the election period.

The National Elections Officer will announce results within seven days after voting closes.

Details will be sent closer to the event. Voting, where required, will be open from June 8, 2021 and closes on July 5, 2021
