Event Description

At the regular monthly meeting in December, we will have a special guest in to present to the members of the Venturer Advisor Forum (VAF), and to the Scouting and Guiding youth participants of the Joint Council (JC).

The presenter will talk about the opioid crisis in Canada (and in our region), how it is affecting a growing number of adults and youth alike, how to recognize overdose symptoms and when/how to administer Naloxone.

  • Ontario residents attending the presentation, who provide proof of residency (i.e.
  • health card), will receive a free Naloxone Spray Kit.
  • Youth under 18 must complete the parental permission slip to receive a kit
  • We are trying to get kits for Quebec residents as well, if possible.

In order to ensure you get a kit, please send an email on or before Monday, 18 November 2019, to the VAF Chair ( confirming that you will attend the presentation, indicating if you are resident of Ontario or Quebec.

All registered Senior Section Scouters, Guiders and youth (Venturers, Rovers, Pathfinders and Rangers) are welcome to attend. All participants under the age of 18 will need to complete and bring with them a signed Parental Permission slip (attached below).

Following the opioid presentation, all are welcome and encouraged to stay for the VAF and JC meetings.
