Registration for the 2017-2018 training year is now CLOSED (unless prior arrangements were made to register at a later date). Unfortunately, due to space constraints in our training facilities, registration for this training year is closed. We apologize for any disappointment caused and encourage you to contact one of the other air cadet squadrons in Brampton (listed below). If you are currently a cadet at another unit and would like to transfer in to 758, we will accept transfers at any point in the training year. Just contact us to advise.

Existing cadets are automatically registered for the next training year but should review the Fees page on this website as there are annual fees to be paid on the first night back.

Fees: Click here for details.

 

Our squadron serves the Bramalea area of Brampton (east of the 410 and south of Mayfield Road). There may be a unit closer to your home that might be more convenient. We highly recommend one of the other two air cadet squadrons in Brampton, or the army or sea cadet corps (listed below):

132 Spitfire Squadron serves the West end of the city (West of Highway 410).
892 Snowy Owl Squadron serves the area to the North.
Army Cadets: 557 Lorne Scots.
Sea cadets: Illustrious Sea Cadets.

Should you not reside within the City of Brampton, please visit the national cadet website (www.cadets.ca) to see if there is a unit that might be more convenient.

About Cadets

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 Vision of the Cadet Program is to provide a relevant, credible and proactive youth development organization, offering the program of choice for Canada’s youth, preparing them to become the leaders of tomorrow through a set of fun, challenging, well-organized and safe activities.

The Aim of the Cadet Program is to develop in youth the attributes of good citizenship and leadership, promote physical fitness and stimulate the interest of youth in the sea, land and air activities of the Canadian Forces.

Important Note: If you are unsure as to whether this program is the right fit for you, we encourage you to attend one of our information sessions as our staff and senior cadets will be there to answer any questions you may have.

We strongly encourage open communication between parents and cadets when it comes to joining the program as cadets who are forced unwillingly into the program may not get much out of it. As the saying goes, “you get out of cadets, what you put into it”. Cadets will be required to maintain a high standard of dress and deportment. There are certain standards (for example, haircuts, shaving, no make-up, no jewellery, no nail polish, etc.) that some cadets may be unwilling to conform to. If you are unsure, we absolutely encourage you to give it a try. Through cadets you will learn so many neat and exciting things that you will not find anywhere else!

Should you want more information on what the Air Cadet program has to offer, please visit the National Cadet website at www.cadets.ca.

Thank you for your interest in the Air Cadet program and 758 “Argus” Squadron. We look forward to meeting you in the fall!
