If you’re aged 12-18 and interested in joining Air Cadets, then come to the squadron office in St. Mary’s School along with your parent or guardian any Thursday evening after 7p.m. and talk to us! We will be glad to talk with you about the cadet program in general and about air cadets in particular. You can also meet and chat with cadets and tour the facilities, perhaps even sit in on a class.

If you decide to join, we will provide you with some forms that will need to be completed. They are:

CF 1158 (Application for Membership)

Prospective cadets must present at least ONE of the following forms of identification.

  • Birth Certificate (preferred)
  • Valid Canadian passport

2. Your BC Care Card

3. Court documents, if applicable
