We are proud to introduce a new Online Registration Tool to make the registration process easier to join cadets! 

Parents/guardians and prospective cadets can now visit our website at www.canada.ca/join-cadets to receive information to help them start the registration process. 

The tool will gather their contact information as well as the unit they are interested in joining and forward it to the

corps/squadrons’ generic mailbox. Corps and squadrons will then be able to contact the parent/guardian to answer any questions and arrange for the completion of the registration process. 

173 Squadron parades every Wednesday night at Trenton  High School, 14 - 4th Avenue, Trenton, Ontario.                         

Timings are 18:00 - 21:00 hrs.

The Program

Royal Canadian Air Cadets is a dynamic and interactive youth program sponsored by the Air Cadet League of Canada, Department of National Defence (Canadian Armed Forces).

Air Cadets participate in a variety of fun and challenging activities. There is something for everyone – no matter what their personal interests may be.

The majority of cadet training takes place at the local squadron during the regular school year with a percentage of cadets selected for summer training courses at various cadet summer training centres located across Canada. Central to the air cadet program are the gliding and flying scholarships offered to those who qualify. One in five private pilots in Canada is an ex-air cadet and 67% of commercial and airline pilots began as air cadets. There are 456 squadrons located across the country with an approximate enrolment of 23,000 Air Cadets.
