General Info

The Royal Canadian Army Cadets is the oldest youth organization in Canada! We trace our origin to the year 1862, five years before confederation, when “associations for drill and musketry” were formed in schools in response to Fenian raids. In those days, drill was not just a parade square exercise but the method of maneuvering on the battlefield.

In 1887, the government began issuing arms and
equipment to schools that agreed to form drill associations, now called “Cadets Corps.” By 1908, the government was training teachers as army reserve officers to conduct physical training, drill, and musketry in schools. Provincial departments of education agreed to encourage cadet training, and this partnership contributed to the development of physical education programs in Canadian schools.

The Canadian Cadet Organization, which includes Royal Canadian Sea, Army, and Air Cadets, enrolls both males and females and currently enrolled are about 70,000 cadets across Canada of which 25,000 are army cadets!

This Corps was formed 22 Sep 71 and sponsored by Slave Lake Petroleum Association and affiliated with Loyal Edmonton Regiment. It was designated 2890 Slave Lake Army Cadet Corps. In Dec 72 the sponsor requested a change of designation and affiliation. The Corps became known as 2890 Loyal Edmonton Regt (4 PPCLI) Cadet Corps. It was affiliated with 4 PPCLI. Slave Lake Petroleum Club appears to be the sponsoring body in name only and Br 110 Royal Canadian Legion being totally responsible for financial assistance.
