Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

The Cadet Program is funded by the Department of National Defence in partnership with the Army Cadet League. The civilian sponsor requires local community support to meet its obligations that include accommodations, training aids and equipment and program enhancements not otherwise provided. Parents and Cadets are expected to participate in and contribute to fundraising as required by the League’s local sponsoring element.

The Department of National Defence/Canadian Armed Forces assumes costs (including uniform and travel) for Cadets. Consequently, membership in the Cadet Program provides thousands of Canadian youth with unique opportunities free of charge that they might not otherwise experience — making the Cadet Program a viable option.

How long does it take to receive my uniform?

Once your enrollment is complete, new cadets must commit to a minimum of three weeks before receiving their uniform and other forms of equipment.
