The officers are members of the Cadet Instructors Cadre (CIC). The CIC is a sub-component of the Reserve Force, COATS. Our primary duty is the supervision, administration and training of close to 65,000 sea, army and air cadets across Canada. Click here to see the NEW Canadian Army Officer & NCM Ranks.

CIC Officers come from virtually all walks of civilian life. Some are students, others are homemakers, doctors, police officers, accountants, construction workers and ex-Regular Force military. But no matter how diverse their backgrounds, CIC Officers do have one thing in common - their dedication to the development of Canada's youth.

The training of officers of the CIC is conducted throughout the calendar year by the appropriate Regional CIC Training School. These courses offer a civilian exposure to a military environment while also covering fundamental skills required in training cadets. Upon graduation from the first course (Basic Officer Qualification), candidates may become commissioned officers of the Canadian Forces (Reserves). It is interesting to note that, with more than 6000 members, the CIC is the largest officer branch in the Canadian Forces. For more information on the Cadet Instructor Cadre, visit the National Cadet Website.

Without members and volunteers many activities in a Corps would not take place. Members and Volunteers give their time in a variety of ways and come from all walks of life with a wealth of experience in both private and ex-military sectors. The Army Cadet League of Canada welcomes a large number of volunteers at the Corps level and in the Army Cadet Program as a whole. The Army Cadet League of Canada and its partner, the Department of National Defence (DND) jointly support the Royal Canadian Army Cadets, a premier youth organization.

The Army Cadet program is a comprehensive program, which is run in a structured, disciplined and safe manner. In this context, it is important to ensure all volunteers are appropriately selected, initially supervised, well- intended, offer skills which add value and complement the program, and are good role models for Army Cadets. Knowing the volunteers, their skills and talents, and their intended contribution is very important to the Corps Officers, staff and Sponsoring Committee. A team effort produces the best results for the greater benefit of the Cadet Movement.
