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.
