Survey Report Highlights:

Canada Flag Program

The RSCA is excited to launch this patriotic annual program in celebration of our country’s 150th birthday!  This initiative was inspired by a program hosted by the 5th Orangeville Scouts. The purpose is to inspire national pride by putting up Canada Day flags at participants’ homes on key Canadian holidays.  The flags would be installed on lawns by volunteers in the week preceding Victoria Day, Canada Day, Civic Holiday, Labour Day, Thanksgiving and Remembrance Day, and then removed in the week after.

The cost for this service is $40 per year.  To register, please visit our Canada Flag Program Page.
