The Royal Canadian Air Cadets is a federally-sponsored national program for young Canadians ages 12 to 18. The purpose is to develop in youth the attributes of leadership, engaged and active citizenship, and physical fitness. This is done within an environment that stimulates an interest in the activities of the Canadian Armed Forces.
The air cadet program operates within a partnership agreement between the Department of National Defense (DND) and The Air Cadet League of Canada (ACL), a civilian volunteer organization.
There are more than 450 squadrons across Canada with roughly 23,000 air cadets enrolled in the program.
