Our Mission Statement

“We are here to Support the Success of our Cadets”

Our Squadron Sponsor Committee are composed of parent volunteers who devoted their time and effort nearly in all facets in supporting our cadets.

SSC members worked in every way with the squadron to ensure annual plans and budget are in place, organize fundraising initiatives, providing financial and administrative needs, support cadet recreational programs, etc.

For example, we coordinate the tagging campaigns each Fall and Spring. We also organize annual events like the Christmas party and the dinning-in. Just to name a few.

Our Chair works closely with our Commanding Officer to ensure all plans are implemented according to the needs of the cadets.

Overall, joining the SSC is a great opportunity to get involve and help improve the cadet program. You may also make some new friends along the way!

Please note that parking is not permitted on the driveway in front of the school. It is a safety concern and against City By-law. Please make use of the parking lot.

Change of Shoes

During Winter season, snow makes for wet boots. We need to respect the facility by keeping it clean. Please have your child carry their black shoes/boots while wearing a secondary pair of shoes. They will have time to change shoes at the entrance.

School Area

Please note that during training nights, the school is not open for outside visitation. The school is reserved for the sole purpose of cadets training, and a security issue if unknown visitor wanders about. However, parents are welcome to observe the closing parade around 9pm at the gym, after they have parked their vehicle. Change of shoes applies to parents as well when snowing.
