Affiliated Dragoon Cadets

Guild Supported Canadian Army Cadets

The purpose of the Army Cadet movement is not to train soldiers, but to “Build Better Citizens.”

The mission of the Cadet Program is to contribute to the development and preparation of youth for the transition to adulthood, enabling them to meet the challenges of modern society, through a dynamic, community-based program.

The Cadet activities today are geared to develop self-discipline, self-reliance, physical fitness and other useful skills for Canadian youth. Many of the activities are military in origin and the programme of personal and social development is based on discipline, but the overall objectives go far beyond learning how to master any one particular skill.

Cadets are not a part of the Canadian Forces, they are enrolled in the Cadet organization, are trained on a voluntary basis and are not obligated to serve for any specific time.

Membership is open to teenagers from 12-18 years old.
