In order to be able to participate in cadet activities with insurance coverage, the following documents must be provided to the 1 West Montreal Squadron Administration Office.

To facilitate the registration process, please prepare the following documents:


To be eligible for membership in 1 West Montreal Squadron, the applicant must:

  • be not less than 12 years old but not have attained his/her 19th birthday;

  • not belong to another cadet corps or squadron;

  • be a Canadian citizen or a lawful resident of Canada;

  • be medically, physically and psychologically fit to join Cadets and participate in related training and/or activities;

  • be of good moral character;


There is no membership fee or annual dues. The training is mostly provided free of charge and the uniform is issued for the duration of membership. However, cadets, with the support of their parents/guardians, are requested to raise $180 per year through their participation in squadron fundraising activities or by making a donation to the squadron. This enables the squadron to provide activities not paid for by the Canadian Forces, awards, familiarization flights, training facilities rental, and much more.

All donations are eligible for charitable donation receipts for income tax purposes. If you are able to make a donation in support of the Squadron, there are several possible payment options:


A cadet is expected:

  • to participate in training activities and follow regulations, orders and instructions;

  • to take good care of all items of clothing and equipment issued to him/her, to safeguard them and to return them when requested to do so; and

  • to conduct himself/herself in a manner respectful of others.

A cadet:

  • may end his/her membership with the squadron at any time;

  • may be expelled from the squadron if he/she commits a serious breach of discipline;

  • is no longer eligible to be a member of the squadron when he/she turns 19; and

  • is not member of the Canadian Forces and is not obligated to join that organization once the cadet membership is terminated.
