Trefoil Guild

Trefoil Guild is an activity option for adults in Guiding. Membership is open to women over the age of 30 who have been enrolled in Girl Guides of Canada previously and who remain as adult members of Girl Guides of Canada. Members may be active in other aspects of Guiding such as youth unit leaders or administrative leaders. Non-members can become members of a Trefoil Guild by meeting all the requirements of an adult member and registering with one of the Trefoil Guilds in the province. Requirements include completing a screening process, providing a current Police Record Check (PRC) through BackCheck and paying the National & Provincial membership fees. At the present time (Feb. 2022), Saskatchewan Trefoil Guild members do not pay a fee for Trefoil Guild membership.

The aim of Trefoil Guild is to keep alive the Spirit of Guiding, to carry that Spirit into the communities in which we live and work, to give support to youth and adult Guiding and to provide members with opportunities for fun and sisterhood. Activities are varied – speakers, crafts, tours to local interest places, potluck meals (during non-Covid19 times), audiovisual presentations, travel, restaurant testing (during non-covid19 times), helping out at unit meetings and special events, and service projects in the community. Each Guild decides how often the members meet and what its focus will be. Each Guild has a Trefoil Guild Lead and may have a secretary and/or treasurer.

Trefoil Guilds have been active in Canada since 1959. National Gatherings of Trefoil Guild members have been held approximately every three years since 1952, in various locations across the country (Gatherings have been postponed during the Covid19 pandemic).
