Gather your loonies and toonies and support local Girl Guides. As of 2023, all Girl Guide cookies will be sold for $6 per box in Canada. As Girl Guides of Canada faces rising costs of baking and shipping, like most other favourite food products we all enjoy, GGC has increased the price by $1 (from $5) to ensure youth can continue to benefit from girl empowerment, leadership development, and fun experiences powered by cookies. This modest increase — the first price increase in over a decade — allows Girl Guide members to continue to raise the same amount of funds with these tasty treats.

"Through cookie sales, girls raise funds to help them participate in activities where they have fun, contribute to their community, and build their confidence, while being mentored by amazing women role models,” says Diamond Isinger, provincial commissioner for the Girl Guides of Canada. 

The Spring 2023 cookie fundraising campaign kicked off in BC on Saturday, March 4, with cookies being picked up by Girl Guide members and volunteers from four regional warehouses and ongoing neighbourhood deliveries across B.C. Thousands of girls immediately began sharing cookies with their communities, through public booth sales, door-to-door sales, and other sales to friends and families, until sold out.

All proceeds go to Girl Guides of Canada including direct support to local girls in your community. Learn more about Girl Guides of Canada at
