International & Travel Opportunities

International Guiding


Girl Guides of Canada is dedicated to ensuring our programming provides opportunities for girls and women to understand their role in the larger world so they can develop into informed and responsible global citizens. Our goal is to increase girls’ awareness about the world, promote cross-cultural learning and educate girls on global issues that inspire them to take action.

To make positive changes in the world, girls and young women need to have a voice. And Girl Guides of Canada’s international programming gives girls and women the tools they need to build a better world.

International programming highlights:

  • As a member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), we’re part of the largest voluntary movement dedicated to girls and young women in the world. 
  • International travel and global development activities and discussions
  • Each year on February 22, World Thinking Day, girls participate in activities and projects with global themes to honour their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in other countries.
  • Our Twinning program helps girls connect with youth in other countries.
  • Girls can connect with other Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world and across Canada through our pen pal program.

If there’s an issue affecting girls around the world, Girl Guides of Canada is part of the solution.

Whether they’re attending an event at the United Nations, hiking through the Swiss Alps or helping build schools in Honduras, girls and women have the world at their feet through our international travel program.
