Canadian Cadet General Order (CANCDTGEN)

Update - COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements for Cadets


A. CANCDTGEN 005/22, COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements for Cadets

B. CJCR Directive for Training Activities in a Persistent COVID-19 Environment (2022 Posture) Amendment 1, 19 May 2022 

C. Vaccines for Children: COVID-19

D. CDS/DM Directive on DND/CAF Operating and Reconstituting in a Persistent COVID-19 Environment

1. Evidence indicates that the vaccines used in Canada are very effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19. This CANCDTGEN supersedes and replaces ref A effective immediately, and is applicable to summer 2022 activities, as follows:

  1. cadets who participate in Cadet Training Centre (CTC) courses or ship deployments must be vaccinated against COVID-19; and
  2. cadets participating in Cadet Activity Program (CAP) training do not require vaccination against COVID-19. However, where CAP activities are located at a CTC, cadets attending CAP may require vaccination against COVID-19 if the CAP participants cannot be distinctly cohorted from the cadets attending CTC courses.

2. Cadets in Canada are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after they have received their primary series (two doses) of a Health Canada (HC) approved vaccine.

3. Cadets attending an activity where vaccination against COVID-19 is required, will show proof of vaccination at the time of applying for the applicable activity. Corps and squadron staff will record in Fortress that proof has been shown. Additionally, cadets must be prepared to show their proof of vaccination when they arrive at the start of the activity or at the embarkation point to travel to the activity.

4. Cadets attending in-person day-training activities will continue to adhere to local, provincial/territorial, and federal guidelines regarding public health measures including the use of non-medical masks (NMM) as detailed at ref B. In some circumstances, government-issued proof of vaccination may still be required by certain facilities used to support cadet activities as part of local, provincial/territorial public health measures.

5. Summer 2022 Vaccine Policy - is available should there be any further questions or requests for accommodation.
