Welcome to 704 Air Force City Cadet Squadron!

Thank you to the Cadets who assisted with poppy sales on Saturday in Frankford.

Great effort by the Orienteering Team at the Provincial Competition on the weekend. They placed 5th overall amongst some fierce competitors.

If you know of anyone between the ages of 12-18 and who may be interested in Cadets please feel free to invite them to visit the Squadron on a Monday night. If they already know they are interested in joining, then information on registration can be found under Registration / Required Documents on our webpage. Please pay special attention to the requirement to print on legal size paper.

Important Reminders

Parents are allowed and encouraged to come into the school gym to listen to the closing parade announcements at the end of each training night. We are aware that Cadets can sometimes forget to pass on information so this is another way to stay informed about what is happening in the squadron.

The Parents Committee is looking for parents who are willing to help them out with various events. Whether you can help for a day here and there or ongoing throughout the year, they are always looking for volunteers and if you have any fundraising ideas for the squadron they would love to hear those too.

OPC Lottery Tickets: The sale of these tickets benefit our Squadron so we are able to attend trips and optional activities. Each Cadet is expected to sell one book. As we did last year, our Sponsoring Committee would like $60.00 up front for the book of tickets. When the tickets are sold, return only the stubs and keep the money. There are still more than 20 books of tickets that have not been picked up.  Please do your part to help the squadron raise much needed funds.

New recruits and Cadets requiring uniform exchanges are to wear black pants and a white shirt until sized and uniform parts are in stock.

If you are unable to attend training on a Monday night or an event that you have signed up for, you need to call the squadron at 613-921-7047 or report your absence on the squadron website CLICK HERE. Commenting on Facebook or telling a friend are NOT acceptable means of reporting your absence. This is the Cadets responsibility not their parents.

Please add the following events to your calendar for the 2019-2020 Training Year:

Standard Monday night training will not be posted here unless there is something special happening such as Sports night that may occur at a different location. Team practices will be posted here a few weeks in advance.
