Officers & Adult Staff

While Staff Cadets are empowered to take on the responsibility of running the Squadron, ultimately it is the adult staff that are accountable to ensure the safe, fun, and valuable delivery of the Cadet Program. The adult staff are made up of a combination of the following:

  • Commissioned Officers within the Canadian Armed Forces
  • Civilian Instructors hired as specialists by the Department of National Defence
  • Civilian Volunteers screened by the Air Cadet League of Canada

Our Officers are within the Cadet Organizations Administration and Training Service (COATS) sub-component of the Reserve Force. They are specifically trained and tasked with the supervision, administration, and training of our Cadets. As a member of the Reserves, all of our Officer staff have full time day jobs, or are pursuing post-secondary education, and dedicate their evenings, weekends, and even vacation days to the development of the youth under our care.

Our adult staff come from all walks of life and bring a wealth of knowledge and personal experience to the Squadron. The vast majority of our adult staff were Air Cadets before and all of them are here to give back to the community and the program that raised them.
