Description & Services
Description The Canadian Cadet Movement (CCM) is a Nation-wide Youth Program open to youth between the ages of 12 and 18, which is run in partnership between the civilian Air Cadet, Army Cadet, and Navy Leagues, and the Department of National Defence. 
 
During the school year, cadets attend weekly training nights to engage in classes and activities regarding a variety of topics, as part of an annual course progression referred to as 'Levels'. Several types of weekend exercises are also required to round out this training experience. It is a multifaceted and dynamic program, requiring dedication and commitment as well as excellent time management skills in order to fully succeed. 
 
The squadron also offers several extracurricular Teams, which offer an excellent environment in which to learn, build new skills and make new friends; all whilst enriching the cadets' commitment with the program and contributing to the unit as a whole. 
 
In the summer, selected cadets have the opportunity to attend specialized courses at Cadet Training Centres (CTCs) located on Canadian Forces Bases across the country. These courses take either 2, 3, or 6 weeks depending on their seniority and specialization. 
 
The Cadet program seeks to develop in youth the qualities of leadership and citizenship; to promote physical fitness; and to stimulate an interest in the activities of the Canadian Forces; and to do so in a fun, safe, and professional environment.
