Welcome to 102 Squadron!

Every September, our squadron opens its doors to new recruits. All new cadets must be 12 years of age or older, and be Canadian citizens or legal residents.
In order to enrol your child in cadets, you must bring them to the squadron to any parade night from September through December to fill out the necessary paperwork. Your child may not begin attending training until they are 12 years of age. Click here for more information.

102 Squadron there is an exciting opportunity below for all cadets!!
As we move forward modernizing the current Cadet Program, staff from across the country have been formulating new ways to deliver engaging training for cadets and adult leaders in a virtual environment.
Exploring virtual training delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic has allowed the Cadet Program to move forward in new ways, taking advantage of technology. From virtual seminars to health and fitness challenges, cadets are encouraged to remain active and engaged as we move into the summer period.
This summer three Virtual Cadet Training Centres will help deliver exciting challenges and activities for cadets. Throughout the summer they will offer different opportunities for cadets to further develop both personal and cadet skills in a new, virtual setting.
Cadets will have the opportunities to participate in flexible, voluntary training opportunities either independently at their own pace or in facilitated sessions. This summer will be about engagement and flexibility while continue to focus on the cadet experience.
Cadets will be able to take five weeks of distance learning activities during the summer, for about two to three hours per week. You may choose up to three activities you are interested in. The choice of the 22 activities is the same as those offered on the “Cadet Activities” portal on the Extranet or click here!
Registration for these activities will open on Monday, 29 June at 1100hrs EST and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. In order for cadets to register for these activities, Cadets will need to send an email to their Regional Cadet Support Unit (RCSU) with the following information:
· Last Name
· First Name
· Corps / Squadron Number
· Corps / Squadron element
· Name of the activity you wish to register for.
· Dates of serial you wish to register for.
· The language you would like the activity delivered in;
· Phone number (will be use as a second factor authentication for your online account)
· A email address that the cadet has access to; and

RCSU Central at RCSUCentral@Cadets.gc.ca
Cadets’ email must be sent from their personal email address or an email that they can access. A parent email, that the cadet cannot access, should not be used.
Cadets will be contacted once they are loaded on an activity, and provided instructions on how to log in to the learning tools required to participate in the activity.
The National Cadet and Junior Canadian Rangers Support Group takes pride in delivering high-quality training and experiences where youth lead youth, and this summer is no different –staff cadets and adult leaders selected for summer training will continue to work at delivering unique and challenging online experiences for our Cadets, in a new virtual environment. These same staff will be responsible for facilitating and following up with cadets during their training.
We thank you, once again, for your patience, resilience and understanding in these unprecedented times.
