Ottawa Valley Air Cadet League

Our Motto: “To Learn, To Serve, To Advance

The aims of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets are to develop in youth, between the ages of 12-18, the attributes of good citizenship and leadership, to promote physical fitness, and to stimulate the interest of youth in the air activities of the Canadian Forces. All this achieved in a challenging, yet disciplined environment.

The mission of the Cadet Program is to contribute to the development and preparation of youth for the transition to adulthood, enabling them to meet the challenges of modern society, through a dynamic community-based program.

Air Cadets are not members of the Canadian Forces. The movement is, however, sponsored by the Department of National Defence in partnership with the Air Cadet League of Canada.

Here is a list of just some of the things that Air Cadets Do:

Citizenship Leadership Community Service

Cadets are encouraged to become active, responsible members of their communities. They make valuable contributions to Canadian society on a daily basis in terms of environmental, citizenship and community activities. Cadets also learn valuable life and work skills such as teamwork, leadership and citizenship.´╗┐
