There is an annual Cadet Assessment Fee which the OPC imposes. We therefore need to collect a fee of $70.00 which each cadet is required to pay annually. This Fee can be waived if the family is a member of the 180 Club.
Cadets are also required to sell 1 book of OPC Lottery Tickets. Each book is a $60 value and tickets cost $5 each.
We also have fees for certain events such as the March Break trip which is normally $400 for a 5-7 day trip. Other events are Cadet Banquet has a cost $10 and the Winter Overnight Exercise which has a cost of $40. More details and exact costs will be determined before the activity will in advance, and these activities are optional.
Air Cadets is sponsored by a civilian agency and the squadron raises its own money during the year by selling tags and lottery tickets. The Canadian Armed Forces provides uniforms, training facilities and instructors, and thus, most of the program is free.
If a member will have difficulty paying any fee's please speak to the staff and will work something out with them.
