Squadron Sponsoring Committee Executives

Chair: Pat HuiVice Chair: Pancy PongSecretary: Yan ZhengTreasurer: Ada Hsu
The Squadron Sponsoring Committee (SSC) works in partnership with squadron staff to ensure the viability of the unit. Their support is intended to compliment the resources available from the Canadian Forces. The responsibility for the sponsoring committee falls to the Air Cadet League as their Supervisory Sponsor. 
The Squadron is supported through various forms of voluntary personal involvement, financial contributions, the provision of extra activities for the cadets, and other material assistance.
The Sponsoring Committee is often described as the “backbone of the Air Cadet Movement”, because one of the real secrets to the success of an Air Cadet Squadron is a well organized and effective Sponsoring Committee.
The SSC Chair has regular interactions with the Commanding Officer of the squadron, and both partners work collaboratively to provide the broad range of programs and experiences to the squadron cadets. Whether it is cadet trips, community involvement, Remembrance Day ceremonies, band competitions or Santa Clause parades…there’s a long list of exciting and important activities that require dedicated and committed volunteers who are interested in shaping the lives of our youth and future leaders! 
The Sponsoring Committee of the Squadron shall be responsible for (but not limited to):
- Inviting suitable persons to be members of the Sponsoring Committee
- Liaison with other cadet unit Sponsoring Committees
- Providing appropriate accommodation for the squadron’s training, administration and stores when  it is not provided by the CF
- Providing training aids and equipment, including band instruments, not supplied by the CF
- Providing transportation, when not available from the CF, for local training exercises
- Providing for the financial and administrative needs of the squadron
- Supporting Provincial Committee activities


Markham Lions are a dedicated group of men and women who, over the years, have voluntarily raised over 1.5 million dollars to support a variety of community projects for the benefit of all.
The Lions motto "We Serve" is exemplified by the many projects relating to sight and hearing, such as our support for "Seeing-Eye" dogs and "Hearing-Ear" dogs and Vision Testing in local schools.
