In-person Training Arrival Process
As soon as cadets arrive they are required to don a non-medical mask. Please bring your own as there is only a limited supply on hand at the cadet unit. We recommend bringing a spare mask in case the first one gets damp.

If any of the screening questions are answered with yes that individual will be immediately sent home.

Once all cadets have arrived a unit staff member will conduct a safety briefing and remind cadets of Covid-19 spread reduction protocols.
If we are training at our LHQ we ask that no parent / guardian enter the building. If a parent requires to speak with an adult staff member they should email the cadet unit email address or have their cadet request a phone call home.

We are excited to participate as a full unit in the 2019 Bedford Parade of Lights. We will be part of a tri-service contingent with the Sackville Sea Cadets and Navy League Cadets as well as the Bedford Air Cadets.
Our three bands will combine to form one mass band showing the strength of the cadet music program.
We will have some cadets participate in a tri-service color party and guard.
The remainder of our cadets will form one platoon carrying our corps banner.
All cadets will be in full dress uniform with cadet parkas (where available). Cadet are also encouraged to wear festive hats like reindeer ears or santa hats and can wrap themselves in battery operated lights (can be found at the dollar store). Cadets will be provided glow sticks to carry.
All cadets will meet at DeWolf Park in Bedford, cadets must be dropped off between 4:30-4:45, after that time police will have the road blocked off and parents will not be able to drive their cadets down the road to the meeting point.
All cadets will be picked up a the Bedford Place Mall, cadets are NOT permitted to leave that pick up spot until picked up by their parent. After dropping off your cadet please proceed to the mall end of Bedford to ensure you are there as soon as the parade ends. There will be a lot of traffic so needing to drive up from DeWolfe Park won’t be practical.
