In which country did Beavers first start?

Northern Ireland was the first country to have Beavers. The title was officially adopted in 1966. The Canadian programme began in 1971 in Winnipeg and in 1972 it went countrywide. It was made an official section of Scouts Canada in 1974. This was closely followed by the Republic of Ireland in the same year. Became an official section in 1986.
