Welcome to 883 Air Commodore Leonard Birchall RCACS. The Canadian Cadet Organization is one of the largest federally sponsored youth organizations. It consists of the Air, Army, and Sea cadet programs. The organization is open to all youth aged 12-18 who come from all walks of life. 

Cadets learn a variety of subject matter including citizenship, leadership, team work, fitness and various other life skills. This is done through many different, fun, and challenging training activities and exercises. In particular, Air Cadets also learn the principles of aviation and can earn their glider or power pilot license through scholarships. 

883 RCACS parades on Wednesday evenings 1830-2130hrs at Randall P.S. in Markham, ON. See the Join Us page for more information on joining and www.cadets.ca for more information on the cadet program.
