Duke of Edinburgh


The Award is a non-competitive programme in which participants set and achieve personal goals for community service, skills, fitness, and adventure. It is a great way to explore new interests and try new challenges you might not have done otherwise, and even stretch your ‘comfort zone’. The Award is open to all young Canadians age 14 yrs to 24 yrs old, and has 3 levels:

  • Bronze (for ages 14 yrs and up)
  • Silver (for ages 15 yrs and up)
  • Gold (for ages 16 yrs and up)
Participants can expect to spend at least 6 months completing the Bronze level, and a year or more on Silver or Gold, depending on whether the participant registers as a direct entry or continues from one level to the next. You must complete your Award before your 25th birthday.
