I know that New Brunswick, Alberta and Newfoundland are holding their
Provincial Jambroees in 1995. Information promoting these were made at
the recent National Meeting held in Montreal. Unfortunately, I can't find
any of the letters with the dates.
Hersch Hanson, the past Provincial Commissioner for Alberta is the chair of
the planning committee for Alberta's Jamboree. His address is:
18 Algonquin Bay West
Home and FAX 403-381-1480
He will get you information on their Jamboree and would be very happy to
have you. (Tell him I sent you...he'll hang up! :) )
I don't have the contact for the Newfoundland or New Brunswick Jamborees,
however, I do have the phone number for the Council office in
Scouts Canada, NB Provincial Office
THe office there can provide the information and will get you on the
Otherwise, contacting the National HQ (specifically Communications or Program/
Volunteer Services) might provide you with a complete answer.
Their Phone number is 613-224-5131.
Hope this helps a little,
