Welcome to the Divisional portal of the website. Within this section you'll find the resources at the local level to help you complete your Award journey. Your Division is the Province or Territory in which you currently live and are completing your Award.





We recognize that this is a worrying time for everyone, and you may be concerned about how you will continue with your Award. If you are unable to do your usual activities, take a look at our ideas for how you can keep your Award going remotely or in isolation. Please remember that the Award is about working towards and achieving goals that you have discussed and agreed to with your Award Leader and/or Assessor, not just counting hours of activity. All changes to your plan of activities should be discussed with your Award Leader. If you need to change your section goals, contact your Assessor for guidance in developing a new achievable goal.


Many Award activities have been cancelled, but there are many new activities that you can try from home instead. We have worked with our partners and global Award family to develop a list of activities you can do from the comfort of your own home. Check out the list!


Please visit www.dukeofed.org/covid19 for more information.


As your New Brunswick division, we are here to guide and support you while on the road to completing and achieving your Award. 




The Department of Education has created a form to allow students to challenge for credit the Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award for Outdoor Education 110.

THE PRESENTER - FRANK SCOTT, Founder & Chairman of the NB Spirits Festival


Whenever Frank Scott pours a single malt into a glass, a look of satisfaction and contentment crosses his face. No wonder. As one of Canada's most respected Scotch connoisseurs, he's passionate about whisky.

Frank co-owns and manages the Lunar Rogue, an award-winning pub in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. With more than 500 whiskies on the gantry - one of the best selections in North America - the "Rogue" is a favourite destination for whisky lovers. Whisky Magazine calls it one of the "great whisky bars of the world".

Born in Fredericton, Frank's 39-year career as a publican began in 1976 when he opened his first pub. Ten years later, he developed an interest in Scotch whisky, and, ever since, has devoted himself to expanding and sharing his knowledge about how it's produced. Since 1992, he's hosted many whisky seminars and tastings for corporate groups and charitable events.

Frank is a member and past president of the Whisky Tasting Society of New Brunswick. He has toured more than 70 distilleries and each year attends the Spirit of Speyside Festival, which named him International Ambassador during the 2014. In 2016, he was inducted as a Keeper of the Quaich.
