Membership Fee Assistance

Girl Guides of Canada–Guides du Canada, Newfoundland and Labrador Council is committed to ensuring that every girl and woman who chooses to be a member has the opportunity to participate fully in the Guiding program, without concern that membership will be compromised due to affordability. To this end, the NL Provincial Council established the Sharron Callahan Member Assistance Fund.This Fund was established at the end of the term of office (April 2007) of Provincial Commissioner Sharron Callahan to recognize her contribution to Guiding in this province, especially her recognition that all girls and women who wish to be members of Guiding should be welcomed, without concern of affordability. Our council is committed to helping make this possible. Applications will be considered at any time.
