This category is dedicated to the groups, sections and councils of The Girl Guides of Canada other than at the national level. Formation of Guiding took place in Canada in 1910, immediately after its introduction in the United Kingdom in 1909. Guiding grew directly out of the Boy Scout organization when Baden-Powell found that girls had formed their own groups. Within months of the publication of Scouting for Boys in 1908, scouting groups had also sprung up in Canada. In 1910 Lord Baden-Powell asked the Earl Grey, then the Governor-General of Canada, to take the lead in developing scouting in Canada. Scouts Canada was chartered by the Parliament of Canada in 1914 under the name "Canadian General Council of Boy Scouts Associations".
