Cadet Summer Training 2022

Information regarding Summer Training 2022, and additional resources.

COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements for Cadets 

The policy about COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements for Cadets is now available. 

Planning Update

We still intend to run 12 in-person Cadet Training Centres (CTC) during summer 2022, but to ensure safety, our ability to meet training objectives, and the quality of experience for cadets, we have modified the number of available cadet positions to reflect current and anticipated civilian and Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) support staff levels. These modifications are being finalized and will be communicated shortly, followed by summer offers. We remain committed to offering an in-person summer experience to as many cadets as possible, and anticipate that the majority of cadets who applied will attend a CTC in-person this year.

Planning for Summer 2022

Summer Training 2022 will not look like 2019, changes are being made to optimize the use of resources with the intent that more cadets from coast to coast to coast will be offered an equitable and enhanced summer training experience.

Planning is ongoing at this time, and details are still being finalized. We are optimistic that in-person training will be possible in 2022; the priority is always the safety of our cadets and staff which may require adaptations in response to the changing COVID environment.

The courses will follow under the following categories, to meet the intent of the Cadet Program Rescope: 

  • Force Generation Courses: training and education that prepares cadets to lead, or assist with leading, training activities and support operations at the local, zone, area, and region.  
  • Non-Force Generation Courses:  training and education that provides opportunities for cadets to enhance their skills and competencies in specialized areas. 
  • Trial Courses: training and education conducted annually at regions and CTCs. Trial courses are updated on an ongoing basis, aligned to youth needs and interest, and offer a variety of learning opportunities, some with certifications and qualifications. Successful trials will be integrated into summer training offerings to replace out-of-date programming. 

Cadet Activity Programs (CAP)

CAP will be delivered locally for cadets in levels one and two. The programming will be managed by the Regional Commanding Officers, offering expanded opportunities for Cadets across Canada.

Cadet Training Centre (CTC) Training

Courses offered to cadets who have completed their third year of training, or higher, hosted at Cadet Training Centres (CTC). Courses range in length from 2-7-weeks and take place at  CTC locations across the country. 

Cadet Advisory Council (CAC)

Following the success of the CAC in 2021, an in-person opportunity will take place in 2022 and will be hosted by the Commander, Cadets and Junior Canadian Rangers, at two CTCs, over a six week training period. This group will provide the opportunity for the Commander and senior staff at the headquarters to engage directly with a group of senior cadets from across the country on a variety of cadet program related topics.

Staff Cadet Opportunities

Cadets sixteen and older may also apply for positions as staff cadets at either CAPs or CTCs in a variety of positions.

Intended CTC Locations

The 2022 planned CTCs are dispersed across the country, generally located within Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) facilities, which supports our flexible programming and meets our requirements for 2022 and beyond. This optimization of CTCs and the Summer Training Program will effectively offer more options, and more opportunities to participate in summer training than in the past.

As we are still in the initial planning stages for summer 2022, this list may change due to unforeseen circumstances such as staffing, facility availability, and the ongoing pandemic.

Important reminder

Hybrid Courses

Cadets attending a Hybrid course should connect to Cadet365 and complete the Cyber Awareness Course at least 2 weeks before the virtual component (online part) of their course starts.

In-person CTC Courses

Cadets attending an in-person course will require their Cadet365 Credentials to use the Computer Lab (to access Internet), therefore they also need to connect and complete the Cyber Awareness Course at least 2 weeks before arriving at the CTC.

Staff Cadets

All Staff Cadets should have active Cadet365 accounts and complete the Cyber Awareness Course at least 2 weeks before they begin their training.
