Important Information in Response to COVID-19

From 220 Red River Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron (RCACS)

As at August 24, 2020

The safety and security of all who participate in the Cadet Program is always one of our top priorities. It is assumed the COVID-19 pandemic could last 18 months or longer. The virus will likely return in multiple waves and continue to pose a threat to the Canadian public. A return to normalcy is not forecasted any time soon, and we need to prepare for a new normal. 

We are closely following and complying with all DND/ Formation, and Federal and Provincial health policies and guidelines to ensure the safety of all cadets and personnel. As a result, the Commander of the National and Junior Canadian Rangers Support Group has made the decision to delay the start-up of limited in-person cadet activities until at least October 1, 2020. This was not an easy decision, nor was it made in isolation. It ensures we have proper measures in place for the safety and security of everyone who participates in our programs and will ensure the Cadet Program does not become a vector to spread the COVID-19 virus.  

You can expect we will reach out to you with more information about the fall - starting with an orientation session Sept 8 via ZOOM. We expect virtual activities to resume in September until such time that limited in-person training can be authorized. 

We have changed our training plan for the training year to ensure safety as our top priority. We are collectively focused on presenting a program that is worthwhile to attend both virtually and in-person. To that end, whatever training opportunities we present; we will be keeping with the spirit of the intent of the Air Cadet Program and ensuring everyone has the same opportunities of fun, challenge, community involvement, and personal development. 

Cadets can begin now by trying on their uniforms to ensure proper fit. Although we are not sure yet what our in-person activities - such as Remembrance Day Services - will involve; we all want to be at-the-ready. Measurement forms will be online for submitting to logistics section. 

More information will follow as we move forward. Questions can be sent via form on 220Air.ca or through the 220air@cadets.gc.ca email. 


What we appreciate - is your engagement with 220 Red River Air Cadet Squadron and your keen interest to develop in youth, better citizens and leaders in Canada.
