What are MedVents and Rovers?
Scouts Canada is an international organization that provides outdoor programming to you ages five to twenty six. The safety and health of participants has always been of paramount importance to the worldwide movement.
In 1997, a newly established program from within BC called "Medical Venturers" (more commonly referred to as "MedVents") provided the medical services at the Scouts Jamboree in Kananaskis which welcomed approximately 14,000 scouts.
The Program spread to Ontario with the establishment of the Toronto MedVents and then quickly continued to develop into a new movement within Scouting and now is an official vocational program within the Scouts Canada umbrella of programs!
Peel MedVents was established in 2004 by Dave Wakely and Janice Elliot, and at their first meeting there were five youth. With careful tendering and continued interest of the youth involved the small group in Peel quickly began growing and developing- both in skill sets and members. As youth progress through the MedVent program, they gain both experience and training.
