We meet for training Tuesday evenings and Sunday afternoons weekly.  There are weekend activities scheduled throughout the year from September to June including sailing days, nautical weekends, and other fun and challenging training days for the cadets.

Cadets participate in mandatory and complementary training on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 PM to 9:15 PM. We also meet on Sundays from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM for Optional Training (Band, Sports, Drill Team, Seamanship) as well as for uniform supply issues and exchanges for cadets.

About Sea Cadets

What is Sea Cadets?

Cadets are youth who take part in activities at a Cadet Corps or Squadron within their local community. These fun activities are designed to help youth become more self-confident, to develop leadership skills, to improve their physical fitness and communication skills, and to teach self-discipline through challenging training. Cadets offers challenges, friendship and adventure! It’s an opportunity to expand your own horizons, contribute to your community and make friends for life. Many former Cadets credit their participation in the program with giving them a head-start toward their successful careers. Cadets earn high school community service hours participating in parades, ceremonial events and citizenship activities connected to our local and Canadian naval heritage.

Sea Cadets specialize in:

  • Sailing
  • Seamanship
  • Shipboard Life
  • Naval Communications
  • Power Poat Handling
  • Boat Repair
  • Marine Engineering
  • Leadership
  • Instructional Technique
  • Teamwork

Selected senior cadets have the opportunity to attend international exchanges, to sail aboard a Tall Ship or participate in ship deployments aboard Royal Canadian Navy and Canadian Coast Guard ships. Additionally, Sea Cadets can compete for a chance to participate in annual sailing regattas! Sea Cadets also participate in ceremonial events and citizenship activities that allow them to connect to their Canadian naval heritage. Sea Cadets also have the opportunity to participate in International Exchanges and Cultural Visits in the following countries:

  • Australia
  • Bermuda
  • Japan
  • South Korea
  • Netherlands
  • Sweden
  • United Kingdom
  • United States of America

The hands-on activities, exciting challenges and leadership opportunities for Sea Cadets are many. Canada’s motto, “A Mari usque ad Mare” (“From Sea to Sea“) can be applied to Sea Cadets. With Sea Cadet Corps found all across the country and given Canada’s abundance of water and shoreline, the opportunities are many whether inland or on either coast. You are bound to observe a Sea Cadet making a splash somewhere, from sea to sea!
