Scouts Canada is Canada's largest Scout association and national member association of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM).
Within months of the publication of Scouting for Boys in 1908, Scout Troops had 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". The name was eventually changed to "Boy Scouts of Canada" then to "Scouts Canada".
