Frequently Asked Questions

The skills you develop at cadets will benefit you with your schoolwork.  You’ll be more organized, you’ll be able to focus and you’ll learn to work in a team.

We expect that you will attend regular parade nights every Thursday.  If for some reason you can’t make it, all we ask is you call us and let us know you won’t be there.  We also expect you to care and clean all of the items that are issued to you.

With over 58,000 cadets across Canada, we’re an organization with a proud history. Many former cadets say the Cadets program gave them a head start in their successful careers.  For example, did you know that astronaut Chris Hadfield, CBC’s Rick Mercer, Canadian Olympic Biathlon Gold Medalist Myriam Bedard and world junior biathlon champion Jean-Philippe Le Guellec were all once Cadets?

Absolutely not. Cadets is a great way to find out more about Canada, make friends and develop new skills that will be with you for life, no matter what career you choose.

NOTHING.  The Army Cadet program is completely free.  You will NEVER pay anything to participate in any activity.  All uniforms are provided, and when you go away on weekends, all transportation and meals are paid for by the Canadian Forces.
