Welcome to the 2290 RCACC website!

Welcome to the unofficial website of the 2290 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, British Columbia Regiment "101 Duke of Connaught's Own Rifles",  serving as the main source of all information related to the Corps.  As you search these pages you will find current and historical information about us.
