What is the Online Record Book?

The International Online Record Book (ORB) is an online record book program of participants to track their all their Award activities at the Bronze, silver, and Gold level.  Once the sections and the Award level are complete, you can submit your Award for review by the Award Leader and the Division Office, all online. This means that it’s accessible via the internet, anywhere and at any time, and the ORB clearly shows your progress through the different sections of your Award. Attachments can be uploaded to the ORB and filed with your Award electronically, and you can print out a summary of your Award for a paper record at any time.

Currently, 5 Divisions are active on the ORB. They are:

  • Saskatchewan
  • Manitoba 
  • Ontario
  • Nova Scotia
  • Newfoundland & Labrador
  • Prince Edward Island

If you reside in any of those provinces and wish to do your Award online, please contact the Division Office and they will be happy to help you get started. 

Helpful tips if you are doing The Award Online

When you go to​:

  • Register as a "New Participant
  • International Region - Americas
  • Country - Canada
  • Operating Authority - (Select to your Province. Please ensure it is one of the 5 currently online)
  • For Ontario participants: Your Sub-Operating Authority will be the region in which your group is located. Then please pick your Award Unit (group).
  • If you are an Independent Participant, please register as an Independent Participant under the appropriate Sub-Operating Authority. For example "Independent Participant - Manitoba"

    • If you do not see your Award Unit listed as an option, please contact the local Award Office. Please only register as an Independent participant if you have been told to do so, otherwise you should be registered under the appropriate group/unit.

    • Please ensure you provide us with an email address you use and have access to frequently. If you do not receive your password in 1-2 days, please contact your group leader or your local Award Authority. Also make sure you check your Junk In-Box as the passwords tend to end up here.  Your username will be your email address. It is recommended that you change your password at the time you login. Passwords must be at least 6 characters long, contain a number and a capital letter, and no symbols.

    • Finally, choose your major and select your activities. A Major allows direct entry participants to select one pillar of the Award (Skill, Community Service, or Physical Recreation) which they will undertake for an additional length of time. Please see the Summary of Conditions chart for more explanation. Start logging your activities! Your progress bar will increase as you work on The Award.
