Become a Cadet


If you are 12-18 looking for something to do? The Sarnia Air Cadets is the program for you! 

Have a look below to see what Air Cadets is all about! 

If you are ready to join, please use the steps below to see what is needed!

STEP 1: Learn All About Air Cadets

The Air Cadet Program is one of the largest federally sponsored youth programs in Canada.

It is a national program for young Canadians aged 12 to 18 who are interested in participating in a variety of fun, challenging and rewarding activities while learning about the Sea , Army and Air activities of the Canadian Armed Forces.

Cadets are encouraged to become active, responsible members of their communities. They make valuable contributions to Canadian society on a daily basis in terms of environmental, citizenship and community activities.

Cadets also learn valuable life and work skills such as teamwork, leadership and citizenship.

Cadets are not members of the Canadian Armed Forces, nor are they expected to join the military. While they are introduced to Sea, Army and/or Air activities of the Canadian Armed Forces and certain traditions, they are also introduced to many other respectable career choices that are available to them.

Through the Cadet Program, the Government of Canada is investing in today’s youth and Canada’s future.

The Cadet Program is community-based. The program succeeds through strong community support and involvement. Cadets in turn make valuable contributions to their communities.
