The Award operates in all ten provinces and three territories of Canada. Each area of the country is organized into regional divisions. On the local level our regional divisions receive support from many small businesses, legions, service clubs and individuals, who are looking for a way to give back to the community. Offering support on the local level is very rewarding. You see first-hand how your support is giving local youth the opportunity to challenge themselves and live the achievement of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
