Part of the Canadian Cadet Movement (CCM), which is a youth program for young adults between the ages of 12 and 18. There are four aims of the CCM: To develop in youth the attributes of good citizenship and leadership To promote physical fitness To stimulate an interest in the Canadian Forces To stimulate an interest in aviation The program also has four core values: • Loyalty • Professionalism • Mutual respect • Integrity
The basic CCM program is funded in partnership between the Department of National Defence and the Air Cadet League of Canada. Each unit is administered by adult staff who are members of the Cadets Instructors Cadre (CIC), a subcomponent of the Canadian Forces Reserve. The Cadets themselves have no affiliation or any obligation to the Canadian Forces as members of Cadet Corps and Squadrons across the country.
There are no fees for the program and cadets can even make money going to camp during the summer!
