🎉 Great news for #OntarioCadets -- regional Instagram is here!

😎 While some cadets follow us here on Facebook, which we appreciate, we also realize that we reach more parents and other stakeholders on this page -- and that far more of our cadets are engaged on Insta.

🥳 Reaching parents and cadets is very important, so, effective March 5, we will be launching regional (Ontario) Instagram accounts -- in English and French.

Don't worry moms, dads and others 👫👭👬 -- you can stay right here -- we'll be keeping this Facebook page to keep you updated on what's going on. Be sure to come here often though; otherwise your cadet might now hear it first on Insta!

🇨🇦 Cadets Canada has operated a national Instagram account for some time, but the regional account will focus almost exclusively on what's happening in Central Region (Ontario).

🤩 The #CentralCAPCruise promises to be a fun and exciting week (April 12-16)!

🏡 It will consist of a range of themed, asynchronous (on your own time) activities that cadets can participate in from within their homes and local neighbourhoods.

🤔 CAP provides a fun, challenging and meaningful experience for cadets above and beyond that received at the local corps or squadron level — an experience you can’t get anywhere else!

📣 #ICYMI: With Ontario’s recent announcement that spring break will now be held the week of April 12-16, our plans for the Cadet Activities Program (CAP) will be aligned accordingly.

🛳️ It’s time to re-save the dates and set the course as we cruise into spring with CAP! With virtual tours, guest speakers and daily challenges — leading off with morning “TV” briefs on “cruise” options — there’s something for everyone!

👀 On Wednesdays, we will share a new sneak peek with you! So make sure to keep an eye out.
