Program Overview

We are a youth organization for young adults ages 12-18 who want to be a part of something more. Everything in the program is free of charge; training, uniforms, registration - everything.

Training is structured into five levels which correspond to a cadet's age and level of experience. As cadets move through the training program, they develop a strong foundation in leadership, communication, technical training (survival, toolcraft, navigation), and citizenship.


program overview

Cadets may choose to specialize in particular fields through summer training. These courses are 2 - 6 weeks longĀ and are held at Cadet Training Centres located across Canada. Specializations include military drill, fitness and sports, expedition training, marksmanship, and music.

Aside from structured training, our Cadets also build their leadership skills through on-the-job and real life leadership opportunities. Cadets lead each other to complete training objectives, as well as complete day-to-day operations.
