The Saskatchewan Division Is Always Looking For A Helping Hand.
Every squadron has a director, who is the Saskatchewan Air Cadet League representative for squadrons in an area. Executive members are volunteers who are responsible for all strategic and operational decisions at the provincial level. They are usually longstanding volunteers of the Air Cadet League. To get involved as either a Director, Executive, or volunteer with the Saskatchewan Air Cadet League, contact us.
Every air cadet squadron in Saskatchewan has a Squadron Sponsoring Committee (SSC), which is a non-profit organization and is composed primarily of parent volunteers. SSCs are the local level of the Air Cadet League and are the primary sponsoring group for a squadron and responsible for raising funds to support the squadron’s training program, such as power familiarization flying, weekend exercises, band expenses, as well as rent, insurance, and operating costs. They work closely with the officers managing a squadron. Involvement with a Squadron SSC starts with simply becoming a screened volunteer, which enables you to help out at squadron events. Fundraising activities at local squadrons enable lots of fun optional activities, so we strongly encourage every cadet and their parent to participate in fundraising activities organized by their SSC.
Contact a local squadron to get involved.
Officers of the Cadet Instructors Cadre (CIC) are members of the Canadian Forces Reserve whose primary duty is the supervision, administration, and training of teenaged youth at Air Cadet Squadrons. This is a paid position with training provided by the Department of National Defence. Many CIC officers are former cadets, retired regular-force military members, parents, or members of the community. They work with cadets an average of one night and one weekend day per week, with additional time devoted to organizing and planning activities. There are also opportunities available to train cadets during summer courses at one of the 23 cadet summer training centres, or accompany them on competitions, expeditions, and foreign exchange visits.
Criteria to become a CIC Officer:
If you wish to join an Air Cadet squadron as a non-military personnel, you can also join as a Civilian Instructor (CI). CIs accompany officers in managing and supervising an Air Cadet squadron. Many times, CIs are specialists with specific knowledge or qualifications, such as pilots.
