Our recruiting takes place September through May!
The Royal Canadian Air Cadet program is open to youth aged 12 to 18 and there are no fees involved in joining the air cadet program!
Cadets are not members of the Canadian Armed Forces, nor are they expected to join the military.
As a community based program our mission is to play an important role in the advancement and preparation of youth into the transition to adulthood. Cadets learn valuable life and work skills such as teamwork, leadership and citizenship.
If you or someone you know is interested in joining 570 Squadron or would like more information, please email 570Air@cadets.gc.ca, phone 780-991-3113, or come visit on a parade night.
