The Commander Natl CJCR SP GR has approved the establishment of a bi-lateral international cadet exchange with the USA Civil Air Patrol Cadet Program (CP). The objective of this exchange program is to promote friendship, mutual understanding and trust between Canada and the US in order to enhance international relations and contribute to broader social development of our youth through enhancement of knowledge and development of skills through exposure to different training methods, history and culture.

CAP COS is the pinnacle leadership activity of the CAP CP, and bases its curriculum on the fundamental notion that leadership development requires academic study, exciting hands-on projects, adult mentoring, and reflection.  The curriculum, delivered through academic instruction, seminars, and experiential learning and leadership opportunities is divided into six blocks that include leadership, communication, character, airspace and cyberspace, strategic thinking and administration.
