Cadets Canada and the Royal Canadian Air Cadet Program Cadets Canada is the largest federally sponsored youth program in Canada. It is a national program for young Canadians ages 12 to 18 that are interested in participating in a variety of challenging and rewarding activities, and learning more about the individual elements of the Canadian Forces (Sea, Land or Air).
Cadets are encouraged to become active, responsible members of their communities. They learn valuable life and work skills like teamwork leadership, and citizenship.
Cadets also reap the personal benefits of increased self-confidence and physical fitness, learning how to take initiative, and how to make decisions. Cadets make valuable contributions to Canadian society on a daily basis in terms of environmental, citizenship and community activities.
