Welcome to 706 Ottawa Snowy Owl
Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron

Why cadets?

Through activities that challenge, excite and take them on adventures, cadets gain knowledge and skills that will not only help them succeed in the future, but enable them to believe they can. 


With structured lectures and first-hand experiences, cadets learn leadership skills, discipline and self-confidence. Cadets learn a wide range of transferable skills such as the ability to command tasks, make decisions, plan and organize tasks and work as an effective team player as well as independently. These skills will equip them for life and will give an extra edge when applying for employment or post-secondary education.


Becoming an Air Cadet is free and has loads of benefits. Cadets get to take part in loads of exciting and challenging activities such as aviation, survival training, first aid, band, sports and marksmanship to name only but a few. And of course, they’ll make a friend (or several) along the way.
