Canadian Cadet General Order (CANCDTGEN)

Vice Chief of the Defence Staff Group Command Badge

  1. The National Cadet and Junior Canadian Rangers Support Group (Natl CJCR Sp Gp) has been presented with the first authorized Command Badge officially designating our Formation as a member of the VCDS Gp.

  2. Effective 2 Feb 18, the Commander Natl CJCR Sp Gp authorizes the issue and wear of the Command Badge across the Formation. This significant milestone in the development of our identity symbolizes the important role the Natl CJCR Sp Gp has in providing a nationwide youth development program as part of the Canadian Armed Forces and the Department of National Defence. Commanding Officers are to ensure the issue of the Command Badge within their region is conducted in a manner befitting this occasion where ever practical.

  3. The VCDS Gp has ordered 11,000 Command Badges and they are arriving in phases. Guidance for initial issue of the Command Badge was to the NCR and HQs within the NCR, OUTCAN groups and L2s. Due to the large quantity of Command Badges that are required across the VCDS Gp, delivery will be completed in stages and dates for delivery of follow-on orders are to be confirmed.

  4. Delivery will be actioned upon receipt of the Command Badges to this HQ and distribution will be through the Natl CJCR Sp Gp HQ J4 Supply to the Regional Supply reps and QMs. The Command Badge is an accountable item and will be signed for by each member upon issue. The long term plan for issuing of the Command Badge will be through the CAF supply system at QMs or through Logistik Unicorp - TBD.

  5. The Command Badge will only be worn on DEU tunics IAW A-DH-265-000/AG-001, CANADIAN ARMED FORCES DRESS INSTRUCTIONS.

  6. The OPI for this activity is the Natl CJCR Sp Gp HQ J4 Supply, MWO Boisclair.
