Welcome to 1292 Army Cadet Corps Web Site

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 are two gates; one directly in front of the Currie Building and one next to the General Waters Building (smaller building to the west with the flags). Either of these gates will be our access 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.

PRIME MINISTER'S YOUTH COUNCIL

On 22 July, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, in his role as Minister of Youth, launched the application process for participation on the first ever Prime Minister’s Youth Council. Youth aged 16-24 years are welcomed to apply to become a member of the 30 member council.

The purpose of this council is to provide the PM with non-partisan advice on national issues such as employment, access to education, building stronger communities as well as climate change and clean growth, among others.
