The Royal Canadian Army Cadets (RCAC) is a Canadian national youth program sponsored by the Canadian Armed Forces and the civilian Army Cadet League of Canada. Under the authority of the National Defence Act the program is administered by the Canadian Armed Forces and funded through the Department of National Defence.

Many Army Cadet corps receive additional support from affiliated Regular or Reserve Army units. While cadets may wear the badges and accoutrements of their affiliated unit, cadets are civilians, they are not members of the Canadian Armed Forces and there is no requirement to join.

For over 50 years, the First Hussars Armoured Reconnaissance Regiment has been affiliated with and supported Army Cadet Corps located in both Lambton and Middlesex Counties.
