Cadets sixteen and older may also apply for positions as staff cadets with the Cadet Activity Programs or at the summer training centres. They may be involved directly in training junior cadets or in a training support role. These cadets are paid a daily rate which varies based on their rank (determined during a week of Staff Cadet training). This “summer job” is an excellent way to improve and advance leadership skills while earning some money over the summer. Roles and length does vary, but staff cadets are generally employed for seven weeks.

Staff Cadets can apply for CTC, CAP, or for the IT Service Management Centre On-the-Job-Training. Additional to the completed cadet Fortress application, cadets will need to submit a federal and provincial tax form (for the province you reside in), a copy of their social insurance number and direct deposit information for a bank account in the name of the cadet only. Cadets who do not have a completed paperwork package by 15 Mar 2023, will not have their offer of participation completed and the offer will be made to another cadet. The following information needs to be sent to RCSU(NW) in order to complete a staff cadet offer:

ATTN: J1 CTC Staffing
Regional cadet Support Unit (Northwest)
PO Box 17000 Station Forces
