Welcome to 876 Lincoln Alexander RCACS! The Canadian Cadet Organization is one of the largest federally sponsored youth organizations. It consists of the Air, Army, and Sea Cadet programs. The organization is open to all youth aged 12-18 who come from all walks of life. 

Cadets shall learn a variety of subject matters including citizenship, leadership, teamwork, fitness and various other life skills. This is done through many different, fun, and challenging training activities and exercises provided. In particular, Air Cadets also learn the principles of aviation and can earn their glider or power pilot license through scholarships. 

876 RCACS parades are on Wednesday evenings 1830-2130hrs. See the Join Us page for more information on joining and www.cadets.ca for more information on the cadet program. 

Field Training Exercise (FTX)

04/26/2024 - 04/28/2024

Field Training Exercises (FTXs) are an integral part of the Air Cadet program. FTX allows cadets to participate in a weekend-long trip where they can learn and take part in the essentials of forest and aircrew survival. Each cadet year, 876 RCACS holds two FTXs: a winter and spring FTX. Through our Staff, senior Cadets, and Squadron Sponsoring Committee (SSC)'s time and dedication, FTX is always a fun-filled learning experience.

What if you were told that there was a dynamic, structured youth program that offered Canadian youth a variety of interesting and challenging activities?

What if you were told that this same program developed in youth an increased level of self-confidence, self-esteem and self-awareness?

Cadets are motivated to improve their physical fitness, to work harder at their academic studies and to give back to their communities through volunteerism and citizenship activities.

The Cadet Program also has a direct impact on Canadian society as a whole. Cadets have the opportunity to take part in various leadership roles throughout the program. There is definite value in having well-rounded, community-minded, experienced young people who are ready to assume their places as tomorrow’s leaders and decision makers. - Government Of Canada
