BPSA Manitoba Provincial Council

BPSA Manitoba

The BPSA in Manitoba was formed in 2008 as an independent and traditional style Scouting Association. It perpetuates the principles and practices of Scouting laid down by Robert Baden-Powell in 1907 which had been developed and refined in the Boy Scouts Associations world wide for over 100 years. These principles are so fundamentally sound and the practices so adaptable that traditional scouting goes on developing and can never be dated or unsuited to any community. Our aim is to promote good citizenship and wholesome physical, mental and spiritual development; and training in habits of observation, discipline, self-reliance, loyalty, and useful skills.

BPSA-CANADA The BPSA is totally independent of, and not affiliated with Scouts Canada. We are members of the World Federation of Independent Scouts and as such are not in competition with other Canadian Scouting Associations, we are only their brothers and sisters.


The training scheme devised by B-P is based on using the natural desires of young people as a guide to the activities which will attract and hold them. The appeal of true scouting has always been to that element of the outdoorsman, pioneer and explorer which is part of our nature, and is at its most evident in youth.

Hence the significance of the opening sequence of the B-P's explanation of scouting in "Scouting for Boys":

"By the term 'scouting' is meant the work and attributes of backwoodsmen, explorers and frontiersmen".

Scouting is an outdoor movement and that is part of its character. To whatever degree conditions may, at time, force us indoors such as weather, darkness, or town-life we must regard this as second best necessity and never as a satisfactory substitute for the real thing.
