2019/2020 Training Year Stand Up

Thursday, 5 September 2019 marks the return to Cadets for the 2019 / 2020 Training Year.

  • Activity: Administration Update Night
  • Location: Royal Canadian Legion Branch 643, 110 Jutland Rd
  • Time: 19:00 (7:00 pm) – 21:00 (9:00pm)

It is important for all returning Cadets to attend this session, as there is mandatory paperwork that must be filled out (this will be provided), and there will be opportunities for Cadets to sign-up for a number of upcoming events. Parents/guardians are asked to come prepared to provide information regarding changes and updates to addresses, contact information, Cadet health, custody arrangements, or any other information that is important for your Cadet’s welfare and as required by DND.

As a reminder for parents of Cadets who carry rescue medications (allergies, breathing difficulties, etc): there is a requirement that, at the start of each activity, the Cadet MUST report to the office, or to the Officer in charge of an activity away from the LHQ, to show that they have their rescue medication with them.  For Cadets who require a ‘puffer’ rescue medication they simply show one (1) puffer to the Officer.  For those who have allergies and require an EpiPen rescue medication, the Cadet must have two (2) EpiPens with them. One EpiPen will be surrendered to the Officer for the duration of the activity, whilst the other must be carried by the Cadet at all times.  At the end of the activity, the Cadet is to collect their EpiPen from the Officer.

Please note, as of September 2017, DND’s Regional Chief Medical Officer has ordered that this is a mandatory requirement for membership in the Cadet programme.  If your Cadet falls into one of these categories, please ensure that they have their rescue medications before they arrive at the Cadet activity.  Failure to do so will result in your Cadet being sent home immediately.
