|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.
|A relevant, credible and proactive youth development organization, offering the program of choice for Canada’s youth, preparing them to become the leaders of tomorrow through a set of fun, challenging, well organized and safe activities.|
|The mission of 2890 LERAC is to contribute to the development and preparation of youth for the transition from adolescence to adulthood, enabling cadets to meet the challenges of modern society, through a dynamic, community-based program.
The mission of the Royal Canadian Army Cadets is to foster citizenship, leadership, and physical fitness, and to introduce our members to career opportunities in the Canadian Forces. The aim is achieved in a structured adventure based training environment where young people develop self-reliance, self-discipline, initiative, responsibility, decision making, mutual respect, and lasting friendships.
