Our Cadet Corps in Petrolia meets weekly from September to mid-June on Wednesday from 6:30pm to 9:00pm at L.C.C.V.I in Petrolia. Cadets who remain in the program will have the opportunity to go on summer training in Ontario or across Canada, and, exchanges to England, Scotland and France, all FREE OF CHARGE. There is absolutely no commitment to join the Canadian Armed Forces. Cadets are free to withdraw from the program at any time, by simply returning their uniforms and any other kit issued to them. The skills you learn and the friendships you make today, will make you a better citizen tomorrow. Click here for more information about Army Cadets. For further information, CONTACT US.
