Success Through Partnership
The huge success of the Air Cadet Programme is the result of the strong partnership between the Department of National Defence (DND) and the civilian Air Cadet League of Canada (ACL). Locally, each Air Cadet Squadron is staffed with officers of the Cadet Instructors Cadre, a reservist component of DND and operates with the support of a local sponsoring committee. Our local ACL sponsor is the 89 (Pacific) Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron Support Association.
