WHAT CAN THE LEAGUE DO FOR YOUR CADETS/CORPS?

The Army Cadet League of Canada is a civilian non-profit organization which is committed to supporting Army Cadets by working in partnership with local communities and the Canadian Forces in the development of policies and methods for achieving the aims and objectives of the Canadian Cadet Movement in general and the Royal Canadian Army Cadets in particular. Further information can be found on our National League website at www.armycadetleague.ca.

The Army Cadet League of Canada – Alberta Branch can assist your Corps in many ways i.e. advertising, competitions (such as Photo, Small Bore Marksmanship and Drill), grants, bursaries, screening, and recognition of volunteers parents/families, cadets, and officers.

RECRUITMENT ADVERTISING – We are able to assist Corps with advertising (including posters) for recruitment of new Cadets and potential CIC Officers. Any questions regarding Recruitment Advertising should be directed to Ms. Robynn Pavia at 780-262-0256 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

INSURANCE – Did you know that the League has contracted several policies that cover different aspects of our program:

  • Accident Insurance (To provide coverage for an injury)
  • Liability Insurance (To protect against third party liability claims or legal action)
  • ACLC Directors and Officers Liability Insurance (Association liability; for all duly elected national and branch Governors, Directors and Officers)

It is important to understand the key factor that determines whether a cadet or adult is covered by our insurance policies. The overriding condition is that the activity during which the incident occurred MUST be an authorized cadet activity. Proof may be requested by the insurer that the activity was in fact authorized. Proof may be in the form of approved training syllabi, routine orders or various forms of authorizations provided by DND/Det Commanders.
