Sponsoring Committee

The Air Cadet Program is a unique partnership between the Royal Canadian Air Force and the Air Cadet League. This partnership can be found at all levels of the program: at the national level, the provincial level and, most importantly, at the community and squadron level.

Each Squadron is sponsored by a local organization. Depending on the unit, they may include parents, community members, service clubs, town councils and corporations.  The sponsors form a Sponsoring Committee that assists in the operation of the Squadron.

Sponsoring committees are responsible for:
  • providing suitable accommodation for cadet training and activities;
  • promoting the Cadet Program to the community; and
  • fundraising and managing funds for additional activities not supported by the Canadian Forces.

Here at 199 Squadron we have a dedicated group of volunteers who form our Sponsoring Committee. This group organizes fundraising activities, manages the Squadrons funding and rent, acts as a contact with the provincial and national levels of the Air Cadet League and runs a local canteen and kit-shop for the unit.
