TRAINING DEPARTMENT

OUR PROGRAM

The Training Department is mandated to plan a standardized training plan, with both mandatory and complementary training. These are mandated through the QSPs, IGs and CATOS found here

This allows for each Corps and Squadron across Canada to follow the same expectations, but be able to adjust to their specific needs. 

Our Squadron also participates in multiple extra-curricular activities including community volunteering, sports related activities (tubing, indoor soccer, rock climbing), and trips (March Break trip to South Carolina in 2017, Canada's Wonderland, and inter-provincial trips)

Finally, each cadet has the opportunity to attend summer training, and earn approximated 60$/wk. Different training opportunities exist depending on the cadets interest, age and qualifications. Sports and Fitness, Drill and Ceremonial, Glider and Power Pilot Scholarships, Survival, Pipe/Military Band, and Aviation to name a few. For more information, click here.
