General Information

There are 23 Cadet Training Centres (CTCs) located in various provinces and territories across Canada.

Cadets are selected to attend summer training based on their attendance, behaviour, and other attributes that they had demonstrated throughout the cadet training year. You must have been a Cadet prior to March 31 in order to be considered and apply for summer training.

If you are selected to participate in summer training you will have the chance to travel to a training centre in Eastern, Atlantic and Central Region. If you are selected for a specialized course or your Region does not offer a particular program you may have the opportunity to travel to another training centre located even further from your home where you will meet other cadets from all over Canada.

CTCs offer more in-depth study and experience in the area in which you are selected to participate. Some summer training centres involve all three elements (Sea, Army and Air Cadets) learning and working together in one location. It is the chance to meet friends for life during an experience you will never forget!

Cadets interested in summer training are asked to fill out the 2021 Virtual Summer Training Form. Please fill out the form with your first, second, and third choices no later than 21 April 2021.

Note: All virtual courses will require an internet connection, and device to complete the training on.
