The highest award which can be achieved at the Scout level is the Chief Scout's Award.

In order to earn this award, a Scout must earn their Voyageur and Pathfinder Activity Awards. In each activity award, it helps develop a Scout's citizenship, leadership, personal development and outdoor skills. On top of these awards, a Scout must earn ten challenge badges, and at least one challenge badge in each ot the seven categories: athletics, outdoors, home and family, personal development, science and technology, culture and society, and environment. In addition, a Scout must be holding a current Standard First Aid with CPR-C and the World Conservation Badge. A scout must also investigate and present their findings on Scouts Canada's involvement in World Scouting. More requirements of obtaining the Chief Scout's Award includes creating a programme which will require the Scout to excel in each of the four activity areas and doing 30 hours of additional leadership to others.

Once a Scout has completed all the requirements above, he or she will be able to successfully obtain the Chief Scout's Award. The purpose of this award is to help develop a Scout's personal abilities and create a well rounded Scout.

A certificate signed by the Chief Scout of Canada will be presented to the Scout at the Youth Recognition Award Ceremony sometime in May. The Cheif Scout's Award can be continuously woren as a Venturer and Rover.
