Welcome to 1292 Army Cadet Corps Web Site
WE ARE STILL ACCEPTING NEW RECRUITS!!!!!
Are you or someone you know Interested in Joining Army Cadets?
1292 Lord Strathcona Horse Army Cadet Corps is looking for new members.
If you are between 12 and 18 we would love to have you come out, meet the Officers and Cadets and see for yourself what fun and exciting adventures we participate in between Sept and June.
Registration requires a parent to attend, valid ID for the recruit for proof of age (Passport/Birth Certificate) and their Alberta Health Services Card.
ACCESS TO 1292 PARADE LOCATION UPDATE
The work around the General Sir Arthur Currie Building is still continuing. The access to the parking lot and the entrance to the building has been constantly changing this summer. We are still seeing that access will continue to be via the north side of the parking lot.
There is now only one gate. It to the west of the first gate and directly in front of the General Waters Building (smaller building to the west with the flags). This will be our access point over the next 4-6 weeks based on the work being done on the new overpass and Caen Rd. Access may require some detours that are created on a daily basis.
There are two roads for access to these gates. The main road with the 4 way stop signs and then a small road between the buildings just west of the 4 way intersection. Referring to the map link blow the road is the one that is highlighted yellow. It shows as a one way but due to the construction it is now a two way.
We appreciate your patience as this work is completed. We anticipate that things will be more fluid by early November based on updates we have been given.
