The Sponsoring Committee is the local representative of the Air Cadet League of Canada. The 742 Sponsoring Committee is composed of between 5 and 11 interested parents (of current and former cadets) and other community members. Membership is decided on a yearly basis through an election held in May or June for the following training year. A list of current members is found under the "Members" tab.

The Sponsoring Committee works in partnership to support the squadron staff who are responsible for the administration, supervision, safety and delivery of the local training program with a common goal to acheive the 3 aims of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets (to develop in youth the attributes of leadership and good citizenship, promote physical fitness, and to stimulate an interest in aviation industry and air activities of the Canadian Armed Forces).

The Sponsoring Committee is responsible for:

  • providing suitable accommodation for cadet training and activities; when not provided by the Canadian Armed Forces(CAF).
  • supporting communications activities and promoting the Cadet Program to the community. 
  • supporting the provision of transportation, food, and materials (training aids, band instruments, sports equipment etc); when not provided by the CAF.
  • fundraising and managing the squadron's funds and bank account (including maintaining charitable organzation status).
  • Working with the Commanding Officer to ensure that cadets are evaluated and treated fairly.
  • Providing other support upon request; when not provided by the CAF.

In June of 2020 a new MOU between the Canadian Armed Forces and the 3 Leagues was signed.
