Every cadet has a Cadet 365 account for Microsoft that is used for communication in the cadet program. All cadets should download Microsoft Teams and Outlook as well as other Microsoft 365 application to easily access this. It is important to enable notifications and check regularly to ensure that nothing is missed. For those who have already logged on, please ensure that you are using it. The training team will be working on getting the rest of the squadron their log-in information over the next few weeks and will discuss how to access it with each level. Once you have your account information, you can check out the following website for onboarding instructions and help. https://www.canada.ca/en/department-national-defence/services/cadets-junior-canadian-rangers/cadets/cadet-o365/cadet-onboarding.html
