The Need for Fundraising

Air Cadets is one of the largest youth organizations in Canada. The common perception that Cadets are completely supported by the Canadian government is not true. While a portion of our funding does come from the Department of National Defence, much of our program costs are covered by raising funds at the local level.

The Sponsoring Committee, under the authority of the Air Cadet League, is responsible to make sure that the program outlined by the squadron Commanding Officer is properly financed. The League is also a non-profit organization that does not receive any government money.

Cadets are expected to participate in, and contribute to, fundraising as required by the Squadron Sponsoring Committee.

For parents, there are several ways that you can help to make this Squadron operate as smoothly as possible! Please refer to our Getting Involved page for details.
