876 LINCOLN ALEXANDER SQUADRON
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 VIRTUALLY. See the Join Us page for more information on joining and www.cadets.ca for more information on the cadet program.
20/04/2023 - 23/04/2023
This is a Mandatory fundraising event for all Cadets. Each Cadet must sign up for and attend a minimum of 3 shifts. Cadets need to connect with the staff if they are unable to attend to have a discussion about the reason.
Funds raised help offset costs for upcoming activities such as field exercises, gliding days, supplementary training and competitions. In addition to assisting with the cost of running these events, each individual Cadet’s efforts weigh heavily toward acceptance for summer camps and special activities. Cadets who do not take part in mandatory fundraising activities will be required to pay squadron -sponsored event fees.

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
