    Order of the Beaver?

    I thought I knew a bit about Canadian Medals, but this one's got me stumped.

    Is this for real?

    Here is the e-bay description:

    This is a Canadian Long Service Medal which dates from the last half of the 1960s or very early 1970s. It has the blue band to represent Venturers but does not include the later brown band for the Beaver program which was introduced in 1974. The medal is in excellent condition.

    I'm more familiar with USA Scouting, but Beaver is a rank of Scout. Beaver Scouts are young boys, around 6 years old who start as Beaver Scouts and then around the age of 8 1/2 move to Cub Scouts. So, this is a Scout medal, not a military one.
