The aims of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets are to develop in youth the attributes of good citizenship and leadership, to promote physical fitness, and to stimulate the interest of youth in the air element of the Canadian Forces. All this achieved through a challenging, yet disciplined environment.


Air Cadets are not members of the Canadian Forces. However, the Canadian Cadet Movement is sponsored by the Department of National Defense in partnership with the Air Cadet League of Canada.
