Guide For Parents of New Cadets

A quick start guide for parents that are new to the squadron.


We're excited to have you and your child (or children) as part of the 810 Squadron. This page will help you get started as you and your child start with the program.

Particpate in Required Fundaising Activities

We need your help!

To maintain our cadets' high-caliber 810 Air experience, we need your active participation in the following upcoming fundraising activities.

While we receive some funding from the Department of National Defence (DND), they do not cover 100% of the cadet program and do not provide space to parade in for Wednesday Training Night and other activities like band, effective speaking, and drill.

For additional details on these and other fundraising requirements please visit our Fundraising Page:

Drop-Off Locations and Parking

Please respect the neighbourhood! Obey all parking signs, avoid jaywalking, and drive the speed limit. There is also no parking in the staff parking lot. Loud stereos, loud mufflers, blocking driveways, and other inconsiderate behaviour reflects poorly on the squadron. Please be courteous.

Security and Volunteer Screening

All adults that interact with the cadets are required to be screened and "carded". If you have not completed this process, you will be asked to leave the premises within a few minutes of the training starting for the evening. That being said, it is integral for the health of the squadron to have a strong sponsoring board and several volunteers throughout the year. We'd love to discuss having you take part.

Attending Meetings

Board meetings are generally on the first Wednesday of each month and all parents are invited to attend and participate.

General Structure of the Organization

Please see the Parent Handbook for details on the structure of the organization and what to do if you have an issue you need to resolve.
