Are you interested in becoming an Army Cadet? The Cadet Program is a national program for young Canadians aged 12 to 18, one of the largest federally sponsored youth programs in Canada. The program provides amazing opportunities to learn about our country and its history, meet new friends locally and nationally, and gain experiences that few adults would consider doing.
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 citizenship. Cadets are not members of the Canadian Armed Forces, nor are they expected to join the military. While they are introduced to Sea, Army and/or Air activities of the Canadian Armed Forces and certain traditions, they are also introduced to many other respectable career choices that are available to them.
