Monday Night Cooking

Good evening, Cadets.

As many know there was a cooking club announced and we are eager to start, this being said we need to gather a list of attendees. So if everyone could email in a little message by Friday night saying “Hey, I’m interested.” I’ll jot you into the plans so that we can begin in January.

Future Pilots – Watch This: A Conversation with Captain Matthew Kutryk, CF-18 Pilot

I thought this would be interesting for anyone who plans on becoming a pilot.

Captain Kutryk was a cadet at 551 Whitehorse Lions Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron and 341 Mundare Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron in Mundare, Alberta. He spent three years as a Civilian Instructor, gliding at the Villeneuve Cadet Flying Site in support of the familiarization flying program before joining the Canadian Armed Forces in 2006.

This session was coordinated by the Regional Cadet Support Unit Northwest Air Operations section as an online training opportunity for cadets this summer.

Cadets Canada – Remembrance Day 2020

A message from our Commander:

“I am incredibly proud of the small, yet meaningful gestures and actions cadets and JCRs take to show their respect for veterans and their sacrifices. You are clearly demonstrating that the next generation of Canadian leaders will not forget those who gave their lives to defend the values that define Canada.”

Commodore Kurtz, Commander CJCR

It’s located at:

Also, please complete the attendance tracker for in-person activities found at this link before arriving:

2/ If for any reason you’re feeling ill, don’t come to cadets. Fill in the attendance form, indicating your ill, and also call the squadron @ 905-468-7584.

3/ There’s a staggered start as follows:

5/ Parents, please drop your cadet off at the door. Access is restricted to Staff Members and Cadets only. Please remain in your car and wait for about 10 mins.

The same goes for picking up your cadet upon completion of the parade night.  Capt Lemoine will be reaching out to parents to go over this in detail

6/ Upon entering the building, you’ll meet the Duty Officer & Duty NCO who will check you in. They’ll verify that you’ve completed the attendance tracker and ask you if you’ve completed the COVID-19 Self Assessment.
