Update on Status of Cadet Program

Posted on April 16, 2020, 7:03 a.m.

Good morning,

It is with disappointment but complete understanding that I pass along this briefing offered by the Commander of the Canadian Cadets. https://youtu.be/yfoQfHLzZwk

As the General has stated, all cadets have been cancelled unit 31 August 2020 including summer training. Having said that the safety of our cadets is always paramount and will always be my top priority. The staff of the unit have met and have developed a plan to still continue activities through a virtual setting to include challenges within the unit. All cadets will be receiving a phone call from their Level Officer no later then next week.

I want to ensure you that the staff of the unit are keen to assist our cadets in anyway we can. Going forward you can expect the following;

  • 1. A virtual meeting for all the senior cadets by next week,
  • 2. Challenges for the cadets developed by the staff and senior cadets to keep them engaged,
  • 3. Virtual meetings with all cadets if necessary,
  • 4. Contentious updates as received,
  • 5. Virtual meetings for parents if required, and
  • 6. Assist cadets with mental health programs being offered if required.

Any questions of concerns please email me at brentewood77@gmail.com

I hope all of you are doing well and taking care during this time!

I want to reassure you that myself and the staff of the unit are working behind the scenes to ensure the unit is still running and will be looking for ways to keep the cadets engaged in the program.

The most recent update from our Headquarters is that cadets have now been cancelled until 30 April 2020. Decisions regarding summer training have not been made yet.

If you have any questions or concerns please email me at brentewood77@gmail.com.

Hope to see you all soon! Stay safe, look after our cadet family and reach out if you need anything!

B. Wood
Commanding Officer
