Welcome to 1st Markham York EMS Medical Venturers

We are currently under construction, please come visit again.

We are a new group in the York Headwaters Area in the Shining Waters Council.



The MedVents have arrived in the City of Markham and the City of Richmond Hill.

The MedVent program is one of the fastest growing vocational programs at Scouts Canada. Do you want to be part of it? 1st Markham York EMS MedVents is part of the York Region MedVents team.

Is this program for you? Do you want to be part of something new in the City of Markham? If your answer is YES to any of the following questions, come out and find out more about us:

We are recruiting Venturers (Youths, ages 14 to 18), Rovers (Young Adults, ages 18 to 26) and Advisors (Adult Volunteers) to join the 1st Markham York EMS MedVents Group as your secondary group.

Information Night - August 18, 2016

All potential new members who are under the age of 18 years old, are requested that they bring at least one parent or guardian with them to the presentation.  There are two reasons for this.  Firstly, we usually have to answer the same questions again to the parents just before registration.  Secondly, there decisions that must be made by the parents before a youth member signs up.
