Skip Navigation LinksBECOME A CADET


​ ​
The purposes of the League are to advance the education of the Air Cadets and to promote an interest in the air element of the Canadian Forces.  Young Canadians aged 12 to 18 can participate in a variety of fun, challenging and rewarding activities and learn valuable life and work skills such as teamwork, leadership and citizenship.

Air Cadets are not members of the Canadian Forces. The movement is, however, sponsored by the Department of National Defence in partnership with the Air Cadet League of Canada.

Here is a list of just some of the things that Air Cadets Do:


  • Gliding
  • Precision drill
  • Team sports
  • Public speaking
  • Leadership training
  • First-aid
  • Camping
  • Aircraft Identification
  • Communication
  • Leadership
  • Sports
  • Survival
  • Navigation
  • Airport Operations
  • Meteorology
  • Marksmanship
  • Music
  • Aerospace
  • Music
  • Summer camps
  • Citizenship

You will participate in these activities during the weekly meetings, on weekends and at summer camps. You will also support your community by taking part in citizenship events organized by your cadet squadron.

It all happens in a fun, friendly, safe environment that will motivate you to give your best.
