Welcome to 191 RCACS

IMPORTANT NOTICE: (updated March 27)

As the COVID-19 situation continues to develop, the formation has re-evaluated and decided that ALL CADET ACTIVITIES will remain CANCELLED until 30 April 2020.
All the staff are working their hardest to make sure that this does not affect your ability to pass your levels.

Prior to 30 April, there will be another revaluation to determine future action.

At this point we do not know how summer training opportunities will be impacted. When we hear, we will pass on the information to you.

We understand that this is a confusing time for everyone and we are all anxious to get back to training but safety and health is our number one priority.

Stay safe. Take care, and we hope to see you all as soon as possible.

 

First Aid Kit Fundraiser:
First Aid kits have been recieved, however due to COVID-19 situation, we have not organized a pick up location/time.  We plan to hand them out when cadets resumes normal activities.  If this poses a problem and you require your First Aid Kit sooner,please contact david.macdonald@cadets.gc.ca and we can try to make alternative arrangements.
