About Us

The Aims of the Canadian Cadet Movement:

  1. Develop in youth the attributes of good citizenship and leadership;
  2. Promote physical fitness; and,
  3. Stimulate an interest in sea, land and air activities of the Canadian Armed Forces

We have a rich history at 2290.  From where we have come to where we are going, we keep in mind the 3 aims of the Movement.  We aim to return the cadet to his/her parent with an improved sense of self worth, individualism, pride and competency.  We hope to improve the lives of all our youth.  We hope to give them a sense of belonging and family.  We challenge them to reach their limits.  We teach them to remember our history and boldly embrace the future.

At 2290, cadets is about:  Fun! Challenge! Friends!
