Girl Guides of Canada

A history of Girl Guides Canada exploring everything from the famous cookie fundraiser to the changing dynamics of the Girl Guide culture and legacy.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

Girl Guides help girls like me be involved in our community, be helpful and confident, and help make a change in the world. When young girls help communities, Canada thrives.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

The most interesting thing I learned while doing my project was that Roberta Bondar, a Canadian astronaut, juggled Girl Guide cookies in space, likely to bring to the world's attention, the AMAZING Girl Guide program!

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Back in the early days, the three girl, who wanted to join the Boy Scouts because there wasn't any programs for them was shocking. Now, girls can join anything!
