Our Program

Navy League Cadets is open to boys and girls aged 9-12.
The Navy League Cadet Program is committed to developing Canada's youth through moral guidance and encouragement,
as well as mental and physical training designed to develop patriotism, good citizenship, a sense of duty, self-discipline,
self-respect and respect for others, in a modern nautical environment built on sound naval traditions.

It costs only $20 to join Navy League with a small $10 membership fee to our branch. The uniform is free.
Your child will be expected to participate in fundraising activities, which typically included a Christmas
Tea, Easter Tea, and Possibly Tag Days. Fundraising helps your child develop responsibility, community spirit,
and work ethic and ensures that every child can participate.

from many different backgrounds and professions however they all have one thing in common; an interest in developing our
youth. In addition, each volunteer has a unique background and skills.

All officers and instructors receive training from The Navy League of Canada. This training provides all instructors with the
