The Air Cadet Program is one of the largest federally sponsored youth programs in
Canada. It is a national program for young Canadians aged 12 to 18 who are interested
in participating in a variety of fun, challenging and rewarding activities while learning
about the Sea, Army and Air activities of the Canadian Armed Forces.
Cadets are encouraged to become active, responsible members of their communities.
They make valuable contributions to Canadian society on a daily basis in terms of
environmental, citizenship and community activities.
Cadets also learn valuable life and work skills such as teamwork, leadership and
With a wide variety of learning opportunities, cadets gain knowledge in subjects such as
aviation, marksmanship, effective speaking, field survival, physical fitness, leadership,
music, instructional technique, and more. Cadets will apply their knowledge in practical
situations such as leading a small group to accomplish a task, building a shelter to
survive, teaching a class, or organizing team sports. With an emphasis on teamwork,
cadets learn to work together to accomplish their goals. This naturally earns them
mutual respect and lifelong friendships.
Branch 10 Strathmore is proud to support this important youth program and are pleased
to have them assist the Branch in official ceremonies and Remembrance Day activities.
Our Cadet Liaison is Mr. Kevin Armitage.
