Dates of existence


The Dufferin District, created in 1974, is one of the subdivisions of the Girl Guides of Canada's Sherbrooke Division formed during the Division's reorganization in the early 1970s. It first comprised companies in the Beebe, Rock Island, Stanstead, and Ayer's Cliff areas. Two years later, however, companies from the municipalities of Hatley, Magog, and Austin joined the District and those of the municipalities of Beebe, Rock Island, and Stanstead were grouped together under the rubric of 'Three Villages'. The District Commissioner is accountable to the Division for the District's good management and the development of the companies, in light of the national organization's By-laws, which stipulate that the main objectives of all its sections are to enable girls 'to develop personal values and respect for self and others; to develop respect for nature and the order of things; to have new experiences and outdoor adventure; to make friends and have fun; to achieve a sense of well-being; to learn the importance of decision making; to function in small groups; to achieve a sense of pride in accomplishment; to acquire practical and leadership skills; to develop their ability and willingness to help'. The District Commissioner works with a committee consisting of herself, the Deputy Commissioner, the Secretary, the Treasurer, the Badge Secretary, a representative from the Local Association, the District Guider, the Guiders of the District, and, optionally, community representatives. This committee meets regularly to look after the District's organizational needs.
