Cadet Wing Organization
The Cadet Wing comprises the cadets of the ROTP/RETP and UTPNCM programs as well as the military and civilian staff that oversee the delivery of the military and athletic components of those two programs. The undergraduate student body is sub-divided into 11 smaller groupings called squadrons, which in turn are subdivided into flights and sections. Each squadron has between 90 and 100 cadets, under the guidance and supervision of Regular Force staff, and it is this grouping around which Cadet life revolves.
Fourth Year cadets hold senior appointments from Cadet Wing Senior to Cadet Flight Leader while Third Year cadets generally fill appointments as Cadet Section Commanders. These cadets are responsible for the discipline, progress, and efficiency of their wing, squadron or flight. Cadets also organize and run the full intramural sports program and carry out typical service duties such as duty officer. They have strong representation on all College committees that deal with cadet affairs, and they learn to organize and administer sports, entertainment and other College events. There is an additional Squadron of cadets located in St-Jean, Québec, who are undergoing a Preparatory Year program that provides an additional year of academic studies to prepare certain cadets for the rigours of an undergraduate course of study.
