This is not a Canadian Forces Website
This website has been much anticipated and is always a work in progress. Please forward any feedback or ideas you may have about the website by visiting the Contact Us section and filling out the feedback form. Please keep checking back for updates as we create the site and ensure you keep an eye on the calendar under Training for upcoming events. Please note that should something be cancelled last minute, it may not be reflected right away on the calendar, but you will be informed by your Flight Sergeant or at closing parade on Mondays. It is crucial that you listen to the announcements for updates. We will do our best to ensure the calendar reflects that change as soon as possible.
Registration Information for the 2014-2015 Training Year
We will conduct two information and registration sessions in August 2014 for the upcoming training year. Both the legal guardian and the potential cadet must be in attendance as we require signatures from both on our paperwork. You are only required to attend ONE of the sessions in order to register. We will not take any new cadets after those dates as space in our facility is quite limited. Should you have extenuating circumstances and cannot be in attendance on either of those nights, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can try to make alternate arrangements.
Generally, we restrict registration to those who reside east of Highway 410 and south of Mayfield Road. However, if you have extenuating circumstances as to why our squadron may be a better fit, the CO may authorize it. If you live in the north end of the city or the west end, there are other air cadet squadrons that are probably closer and more convenient and run the exact same curriculum. Should you wish to contact them for further information, please email us at email@example.com and we can provide that information to you. Alternatively, you can do a squadron search at our national website at www.cadets.ca and click under Find Us to locate their information.
Dates for Registration:
We look forward to meeting you there. Should you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to use the Contact Us section of the website and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Cadets Interested in Band
We are determining interest early for the band next year so we can hit the ground running in September. The sooner we have the information, the faster we will be able to set up.
Ideally, there will be two levels of the band. On parade nights, the Band Flight will function as a Duty Band to provide ceremonial support to the squadron during Opening, Closing and Commanding Officer Parades. In addition to this, there will be a Performance Band. This band will be comprised of the Duty band and any additional cadets that have other parade positions or functions during training nights and cannot fall in with the band regularly. The performance band will be geared toward playing public parades, performances, competition and the demonstration for the Annual Inspection. For the time being, our optional training night will be on Tuesday night.
Please send a message via the Contact Us section indicating the following preliminary information so we can begin planning:
I am looking forward to working with all of you,
Captain L. Yap VII
Attention all returning cadets!
Please note that you do not need to register each year. Our information/registration nights are just for those who are joining for the first time. Our first night back is Sept 8. Please bring with you your $50.00 annual assessment fee and $50 for a book of lottery tickets. The $50.00 for lottery tickets will be collected by you once you sell the lottery tickets. The $50.00 annual assessment fee is non-refundable and we direct it to the Air Cadet League of Canada, Ontario Provincial Committee on your behalf. Any questions or concerns regarding these fees can be directed to a member of the squadron sponsoring committee. Cheques are made payable to "758 Argus Squadron Sponsoring Committee".
Dress for the evening is full dress and COs parade will be conducted.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
