If they are not on the attendance form the Duty NCM is to have them sign in on the last page of the attendance. No person will be allowed to enter unless they are signed in. As sign in is occurring the Duty NCM will hand out the four brassards to the appropriate parties At no time is the front door to remain open and the cadets must be processed quickly. NO LOITERING IN THE FOYER OR BASEMENT IS ALLOWED. Once cadets have signed in they are to proceed to the parade square as soon as possible.

Any person entering the building who is not a cadet, related to a cadet or a Canadian Forces member must sign the guest book and be escorted by a cadet, assigned by the Duty NCM, to the Orderly Room. The Duty NCM will also radio the Orderly Room to inform them that a guest is on their way.

The Duty NCM will remain in the foyer until opening parade is finished at which time they will carry out their regular duties. The Duty NCM will also continue to carry their radio for the evening and respond to calls as necessary.

End of Night Procedures


Prior to closing parade, the Duty NCM will report to the RSM to receive the Duty Squad list. The Duty NCM will then insure the Front Desk Cadet is manning the foyer to give entrance to arriving parents and will monitor all activity in the vicinity of the entrance to the parade square. After closing parade the Duty NCM will organize and supervise the Duty Squad in carrying out their duties which includes insuring all windows and doors are closed, the classrooms are clean and tidy, the garbage and recycling are removed from the Orderly Room and ALL garbage is disposed of throughout the armoury. The Duty NCM will also be responsible for collecting the four brassards and returning them to their shelf in the office. Any items left behind are to be brought to the Orderly Room. The Duty NCM is also to make note of any cadets who were in attendance but did not report for duty and give this information to the Duty Officer.

Once cleanup is complete the Duty NCM will dismiss the duty squad and report to the Duty Officer.

No duty personnel are to switch their assigned duty with another cadet without the prior approval of the Duty Officer.

Late arrivals will need to make arrangements with the OPI for entrance.

PART 7 - INFORMATION FOR CADETS AND PARENTS

Saluting In The Armoury

The armoury is designated a non-saluting zone. Cadets are required to simply check their arms to their sides when passing a person of higher rank in the halls or on the parade square (including CV/CIs). Cadets will still be required to salute when entering an office in which an officer is present or when approaching an officer directly.

CCM Harassment Policy

The Canadian Cadet Movement does not tolerate harassment in any form. We will uphold the zero tolerance policies laid out by Department of National Defence. No member of the CCM shall harass physically, sexually, verbally or mentally any Cadet, Officer or Civilian. This includes but is not limited to bullying or taunting by word, gesture or electronic means. Zero tolerance means that anyone found to go against this policy will be disciplined in accordance with Cadet Administrative and Training Orders. The most severe of which, (other than criminal harassment), will result in expulsion from the Corps. Cadets are strongly encouraged to report any and all forms of harassment to a senior cadet or staff member.

Reporting Absences

Cadets should not be posting absences to the Facebook group as this drives down important announcements. Reporting an absence can be done by calling the Orderly Room at 519-623-6406, email at 21armycadets@gmail.com or by text message through the Remind system. Cadets may also report absences through their Platoon Chain of Command.

Searches and Inspection of Cadets

CATO 12-50 established the policy on searches and inspections of cadets during approved activities conducted in Canada or abroad. At different moments during the training or activity, the cadet may be subjected to an inspection of his/her sleeping accommodations, luggage, kit, equipment, locker(s) or storage area(s). These will be conducted or supervised by a Canadian Armed Forces member, and will serve to verify that:

· the cadet’ sleeping accommodations, locker(s) and storage area(s) are clean and orderly;

· the cadet is carrying the proper equipment and it is in good condition and properly maintained;

· the cadet’s health and safety is not at risk; and

· the cadet does not have prohibited, restricted or unauthorized items in his/her possession, as listed in the joining instructions or other information document provided under separate correspondence.

If found, prohibited and restricted items will be handed to the applicable police agency (military or civilian) with some exceptions, while unauthorized items shall either be confiscated for the duration of the training or activity or sent back to the cadet’s home at the parents expense, whichever is more practical and economical with some exceptions.

Corrective measures could be taken against a cadet for failing any criteria or search or for refusing to submit to an inspection, in accordance with CATO 15-22 Conduct and Discipline – Cadets, up to and including being expelled from the training or activity.

If needed, searches of a cadet’s person, property, lockers, luggage, kit or sleeping area for the purposes of discovering contraband, illicit or stolen property, or some evidence of guilt to be used in the prosecution of an offence, will be conducted only by the Military Police or a civilian police agency.

Any questions related to CATO 12-50 should be directed to staff.

Remind Text Service

Now that the website is complete we are moving onto our next effort at improved communications in the Corps. To facilitate this we have implemented a text messaging/email system. To join our group, go to https://www.remind.com/join/21army

Dress and Deportment

Dress for regular training nights is DEU. If you have not been issued your DEU, or are awaiting replacement items, the dress is white shirt, black pants and dark shoes.

Gym clothing, yoga pants, t-shirts and other "casual" clothing is not to be worn while at cadets unless authorized by the CO. Cadets who are not dress appropriately will not be allowed to parade.

Discipline will be more stringently enforced this year. Chits will result immediately in extra duties with a second chit resulting in more stringent disciplinary actions. The Admin O will create a tracking method for chits to include the reason and removal date from file. This will allow us to more accurately track behavioural issues.

When you come to cadets you are expected to meet the standard required by regulations. Hair is to be properly done and/or cut and males must be clean shaven. It has been noticed by our HQ that personal dress and deportment at the Corps has been slipping.

Failure to meet these basic requirements will result in disciplinary action and/or the cadet being sent home until such time as the deficiencies are rectified. Further, failure to meet these requirements can affect future promotions as all aspects of a Cadet’s behavior and conduct are now taken into consideration.

You all joined cadets knowing the rules (which is why we have you sign the Code of Conduct), so start following them. There will be spot inspections by the officers as well as the normal inspections by Platoon Commanders.

Tailoring discounts

If you are unable to sew your badges or ranks on your tunic, Saltsman Cleaners and Tailors at 26 Ainslie (between Main and Dickson) has said they will sew them on for $2 per badge. The placement guide is on the website for you to show them.

Support Committee

As cadets and officers are preparing for the new training year, the Support Committee is also elbow deep in work for the upcoming year. The support committee is really the engine that drives the corps, and they work tirelessly to provide the funding for things that are not paid for by DND. There are a lot of behind-the-scenes jobs that they need help to keep 21 running. They are always looking for parents to volunteer their time to help make things happen. To reach the support committee you can reach out to Mary MacDonald (or any committee member) at the armoury every parade night and during most outings.

Canteen

The Support Committee will be running a canteen during class breaks for all cadets. Please make sure any garbage is put in the garbage can. The canteen is a privilege so please treat it accordingly.

PART 7 - INFORMATION FOR CADETS AND PARENTS

Saluting In The Armoury

The armoury is designated a non-saluting zone.  Cadets are required to simply check their arms to their sides when passing a person of higher rank in the halls or on the parade square (including CV/CIs).  Cadets will still be required to salute when entering an office in which an officer is present or when approaching an officer directly.

CCM Harassment Policy

The Canadian Cadet Movement does not tolerate harassment in any form. We will uphold the zero tolerance policies laid out by Department of National Defence. No member of the CCM shall harass physically, sexually, verbally or mentally any Cadet, Officer or Civilian. This includes but is not limited to bullying or taunting by word, gesture or electronic means. Zero tolerance means that anyone found to go against this policy will be disciplined in accordance with Cadet Administrative and Training Orders.  The most severe of which, (other than criminal harassment), will result in expulsion from the Corps.  Cadets are strongly encouraged to report any and all forms of harassment to a senior cadet or staff member.

Reporting Absences

Cadets should not be posting absences to the Facebook group as this drives down important announcements.  Reporting an absence can be done by calling the Orderly Room at 519-623-6406, email at 21armycadets@gmail.com or by text message through the Remind system.  Cadets may also report absences through their Platoon Chain of Command.

Searches and Inspection of Cadets

CATO 12-50 established the policy on searches and inspections of cadets during approved activities conducted in Canada or abroad.  At different moments during the training or activity, the cadet may be subjected to an inspection of his/her sleeping accommodations, luggage, kit, equipment, locker(s) or storage area(s). These will be conducted or supervised by a Canadian Armed Forces member, and will serve to verify that:

·  the cadet’ sleeping accommodations, locker(s) and storage area(s) are clean and orderly;

·  the cadet is carrying the proper equipment and it is in good condition and properly maintained;

·  the cadet’s health and safety is not at risk; and

·  the cadet does not have prohibited, restricted or unauthorized items in his/her possession, as listed in the joining instructions or other information document provided under separate correspondence.

If found, prohibited and restricted items will be handed to the applicable police agency (military or civilian) with some exceptions, while unauthorized items shall either be confiscated for the duration of the training or activity or sent back to the cadet’s home at the parents expense, whichever is more practical and economical with some exceptions.

Corrective measures could be taken against a cadet for failing any criteria or search or for refusing to submit to an inspection, in accordance with CATO 15-22 Conduct and Discipline – Cadets, up to and including being expelled from the training or activity.

If needed, searches of a cadet’s person, property, lockers, luggage, kit or sleeping area for the purposes of discovering contraband, illicit or stolen property, or some evidence of guilt to be used in the prosecution of an offence, will be conducted only by the Military Police or a civilian police agency.

Any questions related to CATO 12-50 should be directed to staff.

Remind Text Service

Now that the website is complete we are moving onto our next effort at improved communications in the Corps. To facilitate this we have implemented a text messaging/email system. To join our group, go to https://www.remind.com/join/21army

Dress and Deportment

Dress for regular training nights is DEU.  If you have not been issued your DEU, or are awaiting replacement items, the dress is white shirt, black pants and dark shoes. 

Gym clothing, yoga pants, t-shirts and other "casual" clothing is not to be worn while at cadets unless authorized by the CO.  Cadets who are not dress appropriately will not be allowed to parade.

Discipline will be more stringently enforced this year.  Chits will result immediately in extra duties with a second chit resulting in more stringent disciplinary actions.  The Admin O will create a tracking method for chits to include the reason and removal date from file.  This will allow us to more accurately track behavioural issues.

When you come to cadets you are expected to meet the standard required by regulations. Hair is to be properly done and/or cut and males must be clean shaven.  It has been noticed by our HQ that personal dress and deportment at the Corps has been slipping.

Failure to meet these basic requirements will result in disciplinary action and/or the cadet being sent home until such time as the deficiencies are rectified. Further, failure to meet these requirements can affect future promotions as all aspects of a Cadet’s behavior and conduct are now taken into consideration.

You all joined cadets knowing the rules (which is why we have you sign the Code of Conduct), so start following them.  There will be spot inspections by the officers as well as the normal inspections by Platoon Commanders.

Tailoring discounts

If you are unable to sew your badges or ranks on your tunic, Saltsman Cleaners and Tailors at 26 Ainslie (between Main and Dickson) has said they will sew them on for $2 per badge. The placement guide is on the website for you to show them.

Support Committee

As cadets and officers are preparing for the new training year, the Support Committee is also elbow deep in work for the upcoming year.  The support committee is really the engine that drives the corps, and they work tirelessly to provide the funding for things that are not paid for by DND.  There are a lot of behind-the-scenes jobs that they need help to keep 21 running.  They are always looking for parents to volunteer their time to help make things happen.  To reach the support committee you can reach out to Mary MacDonald (or any committee member) at the armoury every parade night and during most outings.

Canteen

The Support Committee will be running a canteen during class breaks for all cadets.  Please make sure any garbage is put in the garbage can.  The canteen is a privilege so please treat it accordingly.

PART 7 - INFORMATION FOR CADETS AND PARENTS

Saluting In The Armoury

The armoury is designated a non-saluting zone.  Cadets are required to simply check their arms to their sides when passing a person of higher rank in the halls or on the parade square (including CV/CIs).  Cadets will still be required to salute when entering an office in which an officer is present or when approaching an officer directly.


CCM Harassment Policy

The Canadian Cadet Movement does not tolerate harassment in any form. We will uphold the zero tolerance policies laid out by Department of National Defence. No member of the CCM shall harass physically, sexually, verbally or mentally any Cadet, Officer or Civilian. This includes but is not limited to bullying or taunting by word, gesture or electronic means. Zero tolerance means that anyone found to go against this policy will be disciplined in accordance with Cadet Administrative and Training Orders. The most severe of which, (other than criminal harassment), will result in expulsion from the Corps. Cadets are strongly encouraged to report any and all forms of harassment to a senior cadet or staff member.

Reporting Absences

Cadets should not be posting absences to the Facebook group as this drives down important announcements.  Reporting an absence can be done by calling the Orderly Room at 519-623-6406, email at 21armycadets@gmail.com or by text message through the Remind system.  Cadets may also report absences through their Platoon Chain of Command.

Searches and Inspection of Cadets

CATO 12-50 established the policy on searches and inspections of cadets during approved activities conducted in Canada or abroad.  At different moments during the training or activity, the cadet may be subjected to an inspection of his/her sleeping accommodations, luggage, kit, equipment, locker(s) or storage area(s). These will be conducted or supervised by a Canadian Armed Forces member, and will serve to verify that:

·  the cadet’ sleeping accommodations, locker(s) and storage area(s) are clean and orderly;

·  the cadet is carrying the proper equipment and it is in good condition and properly maintained;

·  the cadet’s health and safety is not at risk; and

·  the cadet does not have prohibited, restricted or unauthorized items in his/her possession, as listed in the joining instructions or other information document provided under separate correspondence.


If found, prohibited and restricted items will be handed to the applicable police agency (military or civilian) with some exceptions, while unauthorized items shall either be confiscated for the duration of the training or activity or sent back to the cadet’s home at the parents expense, whichever is more practical and economical with some exceptions.


Corrective measures could be taken against a cadet for failing any criteria or search or for refusing to submit to an inspection, in accordance with CATO 15-22 Conduct and Discipline – Cadets, up to and including being expelled from the training or activity.

 If needed, searches of a cadet’s person, property, lockers, luggage, kit or sleeping area for the purposes of discovering contraband, illicit or stolen property, or some evidence of guilt to be used in the prosecution of an offence, will be conducted only by the Military Police or a civilian police agency.

Any questions related to CATO 12-50 should be directed to staff.

Remind Text Service

Now that the website is complete we are moving onto our next effort at improved communications in the Corps. To facilitate this we have implemented a text messaging/email system. To join our group, go to https://www.remind.com/join/21army

Dress and Deportment

Dress for regular training nights is DEU.  If you have not been issued your DEU, or are awaiting replacement items, the dress is white shirt, black pants and dark shoes. 

Gym clothing, yoga pants, t-shirts and other "casual" clothing is not to be worn while at cadets unless authorized by the CO.  Cadets who are not dress appropriately will not be allowed to parade.

Discipline will be more stringently enforced this year.  Chits will result immediately in extra duties with a second chit resulting in more stringent disciplinary actions.  The Admin O will create a tracking method for chits to include the reason and removal date from file.  This will allow us to more accurately track behavioural issues.

When you come to cadets you are expected to meet the standard required by regulations. Hair is to be properly done and/or cut and males must be clean shaven.  It has been noticed by our HQ that personal dress and deportment at the Corps has been slipping.

Failure to meet these basic requirements will result in disciplinary action and/or the cadet being sent home until such time as the deficiencies are rectified. Further, failure to meet these requirements can affect future promotions as all aspects of a Cadet’s behavior and conduct are now taken into consideration.

You all joined cadets knowing the rules (which is why we have you sign the Code of Conduct), so start following them.  There will be spot inspections by the officers as well as the normal inspections by Platoon Commanders.

Tailoring discounts

If you are unable to sew your badges or ranks on your tunic, Saltsman Cleaners and Tailors at 26 Ainslie (between Main and Dickson) has said they will sew them on for $2 per badge. The placement guide is on the website for you to show them.

Support Committee

As cadets and officers are preparing for the new training year, the Support Committee is also elbow deep in work for the upcoming year.  The support committee is really the engine that drives the corps, and they work tirelessly to provide the funding for things that are not paid for by DND.  There are a lot of behind-the-scenes jobs that they need help to keep 21 running.  They are always looking for parents to volunteer their time to help make things happen.  To reach the support committee you can reach out to Mary MacDonald (or any committee member) at the armoury every parade night and during most outings.

Canteen

The Support Committee will be running a canteen during class breaks for all cadets.  Please make sure any garbage is put in the garbage can.  The canteen is a privilege so please treat it accordingly.

PART 7 - INFORMATION FOR CADETS AND PARENTS

Saluting In The Armoury: Revised

The armoury is hereby designated a non-saluting zone.  Cadets are required to simply check their arms to their sides when passing a person of higher rank in the halls or on the parade square (including CV/CIs).  Cadets will still be required to salute when entering an office in which an officer is present or when approaching an officer directly.

CCM Harassment Policy

The Canadian Cadet Movement does not tolerate harassment in any form. We will uphold the zero tolerance policies laid out by Department of National Defence. No member of the CCM shall harass physically, sexually, verbally or mentally any Cadet, Officer or Civilian. This includes but is not limited to bullying or taunting by word, gesture or electronic means. Zero tolerance means that anyone found to go against this policy will be disciplined in accordance with Cadet Administrative and Training Orders.  The most severe of which, (other than criminal harassment), will result in expulsion from the Corps.  Cadets are strongly encouraged to report any and all forms of harassment to a senior cadet or staff member.

Reporting Absences

Cadets should be practicing the concept of “Chain of Command” and as such unexpected TRG night absences should be reported to your section commander or the 2IC if required.  Posting this on Facebook should only be done as a last resort.  The updated “Nominal List” contains contact information for all cadets and is located on the Facebook group, under the “files” tab (Note: this may not be available to mobile users and may have to be viewed on a computer.)  A printed version is available upon request.

Cadet Council

The purpose of the council is to address the concerns, questions and ideas of the cadets and to bring those thoughts to the staff and Support Committee.  This is useful for things like fundraising activities, excursion ideas etc.  Training related concerns should still follow the chain of command. Elections will be held during the fall FTX.  Cadets that are interested in running for the Cadet Council should first speak to a current member and see what the job entails.  The official announcement on the commencement of the election process to follow.   

Representatives

Chair : Sgt Taggart

Master Cadet: WO Byrne

Gold Star:  Sgt Byrne

Silver Star: MCpl Dickson

Green/Red Star:  Fus Goodall

Parade Procedures

For opening parade the cadets will fall in at the edge of the parade square and be inspected by the section commanders.  The DSM will fall in the parade after that.  Cadets will no longer be allowed to mill about in the common areas of the armoury.   New recruits will be assigned a section upon enrollment by the Admin O.

In keeping with the normal military parade format the closing parade will be as follows:

a.      Cadets fall in as per normal
b.
      RSM will take over parade
c.
      DCO will take over parade from RSM
d.
      DCO will fall in the Platoon commanders’
e.
      CO will take over parade – pass on his stuff
f.
       CO will turn the parade back over to DCO
g.
      DCO will handle any further announcements
h.
      DCO will fall out the officers

j.
       RSM will announce duty squad and anything else required
k.
      RSM will dismiss parade
l.
       Duty squad will report to the RSM for attendance and assignment of duties.

Searches and Inspection of cadets

CATO 12-50 established the policy on searches and inspections of cadets during approved activities conducted in Canada or abroad.  At different moments during the training or activity, the cadet may be subjected to an inspection of his/her sleeping accommodations, luggage, kit, equipment, locker(s) or storage area(s). These will be conducted or supervised by a Canadian Armed Forces member, and will serve to verify that:

·  the cadet’ sleeping accommodations, locker(s) and storage area(s) are clean and orderly;

·  the cadet is carrying the proper equipment and it is in good condition and properly maintained;

·  the cadet’s health and safety is not at risk; and

·  the cadet does not have prohibited, restricted or unauthorized items in his/her possession, as listed in the joining instructions or other information document provided under separate correspondence.

 If found, prohibited and restricted items will be handed to the applicable police agency (military or civilian) with some exceptions, while unauthorized items shall either be confiscated for the duration of the training or activity or sent back to the cadet’s home at the parents expense, whichever is more practical and economical with some exceptions.

Corrective measures could be taken against a cadet for failing any criteria or search or for refusing to submit to an inspection, in accordance with CATO 15-22 Conduct and Discipline – Cadets, up to and including being expelled from the training or activity.

If needed, searches of a cadet’s person, property, lockers, luggage, kit or sleeping area for the purposes of discovering contraband, illicit or stolen property, or some evidence of guilt to be used in the prosecution of an offence, will be conducted only by the Military Police or a civilian police agency.

Any questions related to CATO 12-50 should be directed to staff.

Remind Text Service

Now that the website is complete we are moving onto our next effort at improved communications in the Corps. To facilitate this we have implemented a text messaging/email system. To join our group, go to https://www.remind.com/join/21army

Dress and Deportment

Dress for regular training nights is DEU.  If you have not been issued your DEU, or are awaiting replacement items, the dress is white shirt, black pants and dark shoes. 

Gym clothing, yoga pants, t-shirts and other "casual" clothing is not to be worn while at cadets unless authorized by the CO.  Cadets who are not dress appropriately will not be allowed to parade.

Discipline will be more stringently enforced this year.  Chits will result immediately in extra duties with a second chit resulting in more stringent disciplinary actions.  The Admin O will create a tracking method for chits to include the reason and removal date from file.  This will allow us to more accurately track behavioural issues.

When you come to cadets you are expected to meet the standard required by regulations. Hair is to be properly done and/or cut and males must be clean shaven.  It has been noticed by our HQ that personal dress and deportment at the Corps has been slipping.

Failure to meet these basic requirements will result in disciplinary action and/or the cadet being sent home until such time as the deficiencies are rectified. Further, failure to meet these requirements can affect future promotions as all aspects of a Cadet’s behavior and conduct are now taken into consideration.

You all joined cadets knowing the rules (which is why we have you sign the Code of Conduct), so start following them.  There will be spot inspections by the officers as well as the normal inspections by Platoon Commanders.

Tailoring discounts

If you are unable to sew your badges or ranks on your tunic, Saltsman Cleaners and Tailors at 26 Ainslie (between Main and Dickson) has said they will sew them on for $2 per badge. The placement guide is on the website for you to show them.

Support Committee

As cadets and officers are preparing for the new training year, the Support Committee is also elbow deep in work for the upcoming year.  The support committee is really the engine that drives the corps, and they work tirelessly to provide the funding for things that are not paid for by DND.  There are a lot of behind-the-scenes jobs that they need help to keep 21 running.  They are always looking for parents to volunteer their time to help make things happen.  To reach the support committee you can reach out to Mary MacDonald (or any committee member) at the armoury every parade night and during most outings.

Changes to the Website

Over the summer, the website (21armycadets.ca) has had a major overhaul.  It is a valuable resource for all things 21.  Be sure to check the calendar for upcoming events.  The website also contains a ton of guides for most things cadets will need to know.

Canteen

The Support Committee will be running a canteen during class breaks for all cadets.  Please make sure any garbage is put in the garbage can.  The canteen is a privilege so please treat it accordingly.

CATO 12-50 established the policy on searches and inspections of cadets during approved activities conducted in Canada or abroad.  At different moments during the training or activity, the cadet may be subjected to an inspection of his/her sleeping accommodations, luggage, kit, equipment, locker(s) or storage area(s). These will be conducted or supervised by a Canadian Armed Forces member, and will serve to verify that:

·  the cadet’ sleeping accommodations, locker(s) and storage area(s) are clean and orderly;

·  the cadet is carrying the proper equipment and it is in good condition and properly maintained;

·  the cadet’s health and safety is not at risk; and

·  the cadet does not have prohibited, restricted or unauthorized items in his/her possession, as listed in the joining instructions or other information document provided under separate correspondence.

If found, prohibited and restricted items will be handed to the applicable police agency (military or civilian) with some exceptions, while unauthorized items shall either be confiscated for the duration of the training or activity or sent back to the cadet’s home at the parents expense, whichever is more practical and economical with some exceptions.

Corrective measures could be taken against a cadet for failing any criteria or search or for refusing to submit to an inspection, in accordance with CATO 15-22 Conduct and Discipline – Cadets, up to and including being expelled from the training or activity.

If needed, searches of a cadet’s person, property, lockers, luggage, kit or sleeping area for the purposes of discovering contraband, illicit or stolen property, or some evidence of guilt to be used in the prosecution of an offence, will be conducted only by the Military Police or a civilian police agency.

Any questions related to CATO 12-50 should be directed to staff.

Remind Text Service

Now that the website is complete we are moving onto our next effort at improved communications in the Corps. To facilitate this we have implemented a text messaging/email system. To join our group, go to https://www.remind.com/join/21army

Dress and Deportment

Dress for regular training nights is DEU.  If you have not been issued your DEU, or are awaiting replacement items, the dress is white shirt, black pants and dark shoes.  Cadets are to wear their headdress whenever they are wearing their uniform in public unless sitting inside a restaurant.

Gym clothing, yoga pants, t-shirts and other "casual" clothing is not to be worn while at cadets unless authorized by the CO.  Cadets who are not dress appropriately will not be allowed to parade.

Discipline will be more stringently enforced this year.  Chits will result immediately in extra duties with a second chit resulting in more stringent disciplinary actions.  The Admin O will create a tracking method for chits to include the reason and removal date from file.  This will allow us to more accurately track behavioural issues.

When you come to cadets you are expected to meet the standard required by regulations. Hair is to be properly done and/or cut and males must be clean shaven.  It has been noticed by our HQ that personal dress and deportment at the Corps has been slipping.

Failure to meet these basic requirements will result in disciplinary action and/or the cadet being sent home until such time as the deficiencies are rectified. Further, failure to meet these requirements can affect future promotions as all aspects of a Cadet’s behavior and conduct are now taken into consideration.

You all joined cadets knowing the rules (which is why we have you sign the Code of Conduct), so start following them.  There will be spot inspections by the officers as well as the normal inspections by Platoon Commanders.

Tailoring discounts

If you are unable to sew your badges or ranks on your tunic, Saltsman Cleaners and Tailors at 26 Ainslie (between Main and Dickson) has said they will sew them on for $2 per badge. The placement guide is on the website for you to show them.

Support Committee

As cadets and officers are preparing for the new training year, the Support Committee is also elbow deep in work for the upcoming year.  The support committee is really the engine that drives the corps, and they work tirelessly to provide the funding for things that are not paid for by DND.  There are a lot of behind-the-scenes jobs that they need help to keep 21 running.  They are always looking for parents to volunteer their time to help make things happen.  To reach the support committee you can reach out to Mary MacDonald (or any committee member) at the armoury every parade night and during most outings.

Changes to the Website

Over the summer, the website (21armycadets.ca) has had a major overhaul.  It is a valuable resource for all things 21.  Be sure to check the calendar for upcoming events.  The website also contains a ton of guides for most things cadets will need to know.

Canteen

The Support Committee will be running a canteen during class breaks for all cadets.  Please make sure any garbage is put in the garbage can.  The canteen is a privilege so please treat it accordingly.

PART 7 - INFORMATION FOR CADETS AND PARENTS

Saluting In The Armoury: Revised

The armoury is hereby designated a non-saluting zone.  Cadets are required to simply check their arms to their sides when passing a person of higher rank in the halls or on the parade square (including CV/CIs).  Cadets will still be required to salute when entering an office in which an officer is present or when approaching an officer directly.

CCM Harassment Policy

The Canadian Cadet Movement does not tolerate harassment in any form. We will uphold the zero tolerance policies laid out by Department of National Defence. No member of the CCM shall harass physically, sexually, verbally or mentally any Cadet, Officer or Civilian. This includes but is not limited to bullying or taunting by word, gesture or electronic means. Zero tolerance means that anyone found to go against this policy will be disciplined in accordance with Cadet Administrative and Training Orders.  The most severe of which, (other than criminal harassment), will result in expulsion from the Corps.  Cadets are strongly encouraged to report any and all forms of harassment to a senior cadet or staff member.

Reporting Absences

Cadets should be practicing the concept of “Chain of Command” and as such unexpected TRG night absences should be reported to your section commander or the 2IC if required.  Posting this on Facebook should only be done as a last resort.  The updated “Nominal List” contains contact information for all cadets and is located on the Facebook group, under the “files” tab (Note: this may not be available to mobile users and may have to be viewed on a computer.)  A printed version is available upon request.

Cadet Council

The purpose of the council is to address the concerns, questions and ideas of the cadets and to bring those thoughts to the staff and Support Committee.  This is useful for things like fundraising activities, excursion ideas etc.  Training related concerns should still follow the chain of command. Elections will be held during the fall FTX.  Cadets that are interested in running for the Cadet Council should first speak to a current member and see what the job entails.  The official announcement on the commencement of the election process to follow.   

The representatives are:

Chair : Sgt Taggart

Master Cadet: WO Byrne

Gold Star:  Sgt Byrne

Silver Star: MCpl Dickson

Green/Red Star:  Fus Goodall


Parade Procedures

For opening parade the cadets will fall in at the edge of the parade square and be inspected by the section commanders.  The DSM will fall in the parade after that.  Cadets will no longer be allowed to mill about in the common areas of the armoury.   New recruits will be assigned a section upon enrollment by the Admin O.

In keeping with the normal military parade format the closing parade will be as follows:

a.      Cadets fall in as per normal

      RSM will take over parade

      DCO will take over parade from RSM

Searches and Inspection of cadets

CATO 12-50 established the policy on searches and inspections of cadets during approved activities conducted in Canada or abroad.  At different moments during the training or activity, the cadet may be subjected to an inspection of his/her sleeping accommodations, luggage, kit, equipment, locker(s) or storage area(s). These will be conducted or supervised by a Canadian Armed Forces member, and will serve to verify that:

·  the cadet’ sleeping accommodations, locker(s) and storage area(s) are clean and orderly;

·  the cadet is carrying the proper equipment and it is in good condition and properly maintained;

·  the cadet’s health and safety is not at risk; and

·  the cadet does not have prohibited, restricted or unauthorized items in his/her possession, as listed in the joining instructions or other information document provided under separate correspondence.

 

If found, prohibited and restricted items will be handed to the applicable police agency (military or civilian) with some exceptions, while unauthorized items shall either be confiscated for the duration of the training or activity or sent back to the cadet’s home at the parents expense, whichever is more practical and economical with some exceptions.

Corrective measures could be taken against a cadet for failing any criteria or search or for refusing to submit to an inspection, in accordance with CATO 15-22 Conduct and Discipline – Cadets, up to and including being expelled from the training or activity.

If needed, searches of a cadet’s person, property, lockers, luggage, kit or sleeping area for the purposes of discovering contraband, illicit or stolen property, or some evidence of guilt to be used in the prosecution of an offence, will be conducted only by the Military Police or a civilian police agency.

Any questions related to CATO 12-50 should be directed to staff.

PART 7 - INFORMATION FOR CADETS AND PARENTS

Saluting In The Armoury: Revised

The armoury is hereby designated a non-saluting zone.  Cadets are required to simply check their arms to their sides when passing a person of higher rank in the halls or on the parade square (including CV/CIs).  Cadets will still be required to salute when entering an office in which an officer is present or when approaching an officer directly.

CCM Harassment Policy

The Canadian Cadet Movement does not tolerate harassment in any form. We will uphold the zero tolerance policies laid out by Department of National Defence. No member of the CCM shall harass physically, sexually, verbally or mentally any Cadet, Officer or Civilian. This includes but is not limited to bullying or taunting by word, gesture or electronic means. Zero tolerance means that anyone found to go against this policy will be disciplined in accordance with Cadet Administrative and Training Orders.  The most severe of which, (other than criminal harassment), will result in expulsion from the Corps.  Cadets are strongly encouraged to report any and all forms of harassment to a senior cadet or staff member.

Reporting Absences

Cadets should be practicing the concept of “Chain of Command” and as such unexpected TRG night absences should be reported to your section commander or the 2IC if required.  Posting this on Facebook should only be done as a last resort.  The updated “Nominal List” contains contact information for all cadets and is located on the Facebook group, under the “files” tab (Note: this may not be available to mobile users and may have to be viewed on a computer.)  A printed version is available upon request.

Cadet Council

The purpose of the council is to address the concerns, questions and ideas of the cadets and to bring those thoughts to the staff and Support Committee.  This is useful for things like fundraising activities, excursion ideas etc.  Training related concerns should still follow the chain of command. Elections will be held during the fall FTX.  Cadets that are interested in running for the Cadet Council should first speak to a current member and see what the job entails.  The official announcement on the commencement of the election process to follow.   

The representatives are:

Chair : Sgt Taggart

Master Cadet: WO Byrne

Gold Star:  Sgt Byrne

Silver Star: MCpl Dickson

Green/Red Star:  Fus Goodall

Parade Procedures

For opening parade the cadets will fall in at the edge of the parade square and be inspected by the section commanders.  The DSM will fall in the parade after that.  Cadets will no longer be allowed to mill about in the common areas of the armoury.   New recruits will be assigned a section upon enrollment by the Admin O.

In keeping with the normal military parade format the closing parade will be as follows:

a.      Cadets fall in as per normal
b.
      CSM will take over parade
c.
      RSM will take over parade from CSM
d.
      CO will take over parade – pass on his stuff
e.
       CO will turn the parade back over to RSM
f.
       RSM will announce duty squad and anything else required
g.
      RSM will dismiss parade
h.
       Duty squad will report to the RSM for attendance and assignment of duties.

Searches and Inspection of cadets

CATO 12-50 established the policy on searches and inspections of cadets during approved activities conducted in Canada or abroad.  At different moments during the training or activity, the cadet may be subjected to an inspection of his/her sleeping accommodations, luggage, kit, equipment, locker(s) or storage area(s). These will be conducted or supervised by a Canadian Armed Forces member, and will serve to verify that:

·  the cadet’ sleeping accommodations, locker(s) and storage area(s) are clean and orderly;

·  the cadet is carrying the proper equipment and it is in good condition and properly maintained;

·  the cadet’s health and safety is not at risk; and

·  the cadet does not have prohibited, restricted or unauthorized items in his/her possession, as listed in the joining instructions or other information document provided under separate correspondence.

 

If found, prohibited and restricted items will be handed to the applicable police agency (military or civilian) with some exceptions, while unauthorized items shall either be confiscated for the duration of the training or activity or sent back to the cadet’s home at the parents expense, whichever is more practical and economical with some exceptions.

Corrective measures could be taken against a cadet for failing any criteria or search or for refusing to submit to an inspection, in accordance with CATO 15-22 Conduct and Discipline – Cadets, up to and including being expelled from the training or activity.

If needed, searches of a cadet’s person, property, lockers, luggage, kit or sleeping area for the purposes of discovering contraband, illicit or stolen property, or some evidence of guilt to be used in the prosecution of an offence, will be conducted only by the Military Police or a civilian police agency.

Any questions related to CATO 12-50 should be directed to staff.

Remind Text Service

Now that the website is complete we are moving onto our next effort at improved communications in the Corps. To facilitate this we have implemented a text messaging/email system. To join our group, go to https://www.remind.com/join/21army

Dress and Deportment

Dress for regular training nights is DEU.  If you have not been issued your DEU, or are awaiting replacement items, the dress is white shirt, black pants and dark shoes. 

Gym clothing, yoga pants, t-shirts and other "casual" clothing is not to be worn while at cadets unless authorized by the CO.  Cadets who are not dress appropriately will not be allowed to parade.

Discipline will be more stringently enforced this year.  Chits will result immediately in extra duties with a second chit resulting in more stringent disciplinary actions.  The Admin O will create a tracking method for chits to include the reason and removal date from file.  This will allow us to more accurately track behavioural issues.

When you come to cadets you are expected to meet the standard required by regulations. Hair is to be properly done and/or cut and males must be clean shaven.  It has been noticed by our HQ that personal dress and deportment at the Corps has been slipping.

Failure to meet these basic requirements will result in disciplinary action and/or the cadet being sent home until such time as the deficiencies are rectified. Further, failure to meet these requirements can affect future promotions as all aspects of a Cadet’s behavior and conduct are now taken into consideration.

You all joined cadets knowing the rules (which is why we have you sign the Code of Conduct), so start following them.  There will be spot inspections by the officers as well as the normal inspections by Platoon Commanders.

Tailoring discounts

If you are unable to sew your badges or ranks on your tunic, Saltsman Cleaners and Tailors at 26 Ainslie (between Main and Dickson) has said they will sew them on for $2 per badge. The placement guide is on the website for you to show them.

Support Committee

As cadets and officers are preparing for the new training year, the Support Committee is also elbow deep in work for the upcoming year.  The support committee is really the engine that drives the corps, and they work tirelessly to provide the funding for things that are not paid for by DND.  There are a lot of behind-the-scenes jobs that they need help to keep 21 running.  They are always looking for parents to volunteer their time to help make things happen.  To reach the support committee you can reach out to Mary MacDonald (or any committee member) at the armoury every parade night and during most outings.

Changes to the Website

Over the summer, the website (21armycadets.ca) has had a major overhaul.  It is a valuable resource for all things 21.  Be sure to check the calendar for upcoming events.  The website also contains a ton of guides for most things cadets will need to know.

Canteen

The Support Committee will be running a canteen during class breaks for all cadets.  Please make sure any garbage is put in the garbage can.  The canteen is a privilege so please treat it accordingly.
