CTC Summer Courses 2022

Through the Cadet Program Rescope, we are making changes so more cadets can be offered a summer experience option and benefit more equitably from this new training model that includes both Cadet Activity Programs (CAPs) and Cadet Training Centres (CTCs) summer training. You can consult the list for the CTC Summer Training Courses below, the list is subject to change. 

In addition to the CAPs offered to first and second year cadets, for summer 2022 we intend to offer third year or higher cadets an opportunity to participate in activities ranging from 2-7-weeks located at one of 12 centralized CTCs dispersed across Canada. Cadets sixteen and older may also apply for positions as staff cadets at either CAPs or CTCs.

We are optimistic that in-person training will be possible in 2022; however, we remain committed to the safety of our staff and cadets which may require adaptations in response to the changing COVID environment.

Planned 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 the near-term future.

This summer we plan to operate 12 centralized CTCs which embody the tri-service reality of the Cadet Program. Each CTC is attended by cadets representing all three elements. The name of the CTC refers to the centralized location of cadet accommodations and administrative support, but we may also use nearby community facilities for specific activities where appropriate.
