The Staff

The staff who work with 199 Squadron come from all walks of life and are often former Air Cadets themselves.  Be they students, teachers, police officers, members or former members of the Canadian Forces the staff have one thing in common – their dedication to the development of Canada's youth.

Most of our staff are Officers enrolled in the Cadet Organizations Administration and Training Services (COATS), a branch of the Canadian Forces Reserves whose primary function is the training and development of cadets. They are subject to the military code of discipline and have access to a variety of training courses throughout their career.

Along with our Officers, we have civilian instructors (CI's), civilian volunteers (CVs), member of the Regular Forces and Reserves that help train and supervise the cadets. They choose to help within the Air Cadet Program for a number of reasons.

Staff are expected to:
  • promote tolerance and respect for others
  • ensure a safe and healthy training environment
  • be professional and lead by example
  • provide quality instruction
  • protect the best interests of Cadets
  • treat Cadets equally in selection for courses, ranks and awards
  • enforce rules and regulations
  • promote learning
All staff must undergo security checks and complete a Vulnerable Sector Screening (VSS) through their local municipal police force before being allowed to work with the cadets.
