We have begun providing weekly attendance credit to all cadets who attend. This counts towards our merit list for promotions, summer training, awards and rewards. Note that only cadets who are registered members are able to attend training offered, including virtual training.
REGISTRATION FOR NEW YOUTH MEMBERS:
If you know any 12-15 year old youth interested to join 75 Squadron, our registration process is open all year long.
How to register:
1. Parents/guardians use this link to register on any device, by choosing 75 Barrhaven Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron;
2. Submitted forms will be received by Squadron staff, who will verify the information, and contact parents/guardians for proof of Canadian Citizenship and to present their health care cards.*
3. Once registered, an email will be sent with instructions on how the new cadet will be assigned to a group, and introduced to their supervising adult – a Level Officer, who will be their primary point of contact.
*To all the parents/guardians of interested cadets – we have had an unfortunate delay to our ability to process applications as this newly updated process is often blocked at the second step – we are unable to process registrations without having a photocopy of your health card and accepted proof of identification. Given that our physical venue isn’t accessible yet, there is one option available:
1. Drop them in an envelope marked “Attn: 75 Air Cadets – P.O. Box 34038” off at Shoppers Drug Mart’s Post Office, 3781 Strandherd by Home Depot
In addition, the following resources are available:
Online Registration Tool for Cadets – this page has information for parents that can support parents through the process for successful completion of the registration.
Online Registration FAQs for Parents – This page will grow as we receive more feedback from user’s experiences.
As many of you may have heard, cadets will be migrating to Cadets365! As such, Teams will be our main platform for this training year. However, the region is still working on the onboarding of cadets to Cadets365. Cadets who are already set up with Teams are encouraged to use this as their primary email for the program. If you’re not set-up yet, don’t worry, until more cadets get onboarded to CDT365, we will continue to use Google Classroom, so keep an eye out for communications from your Level Officer, and we will keep you posted on your onboarding
