Cookie History

In 1927, a Girl Guide leader in Regina baked and boxed up cookies for her girls as a simple way to raise money for uniforms and camping equipment. Little did she know that she was starting one of Canada’s greatest traditions — Girl Guide cookies!
Funds raised through cookie sales support girls and women in Guiding by:

  • Helping us provide diverse and exciting programs and activities
  • Allowing girls the chance to discover new interests, learn valuable leadership skills and making lasting friendships
  • Assist girls and leaders with attending camps and events
  • Providing training and support for leaders
