Join 903 Air Cadet Squadron

IMPORTANT NOTIFICATION

Up-Date on in Person Training

  1. On Tuesday, an announcement was made by the Government of Alberta and Alberta Health Services (AHS), which outlined the additional restrictions for the province of Alberta.  Command has sent us our new marching orders and are effective immediately.
  2. Given that students in grades 7-12, which is the same as the cadet demographic, will be transitioning to online learning, the decision has been made to continue with virtual cadet training in the province of Alberta until further notice. This training limitation applies to all in-person mandatory, complementary and optional training.
  3. As working from home is being encouraged where possible, staff should not be gathering at the Corps / Sqn LHQ for staff meetings or any other purpose. Exceptions may be considered for essential activities only. Individuals may drop in at the LHQ briefly if required to retrieve something from the office.
  4. As the situation continues to evolve and can change rapidly, no date to resume in-person training has been established. We will continue to monitor the situation within the province. We will resume in-person activities when provincial restrictions allow, and it is safe to do so.
  5. By taking these steps, we will continue to ensure the cadet program is not a vector for transmission and we will ensure the safety of our communities, participants and each other.

Sincerest Regards,

Capt C. Wilson, CD
