1. CO’s Message - Major Scott Southern

I hope that all cadets had a wonderful thanksgiving holiday! My hope is that you spent lots of time to rest and relax, and that you are now ready to come back to 706 re-energized!

On Friday, the senior cadets met with me to discuss various items including a vision moving forward. My expectations for the senior cadets are clear and I believe that they will make a great leadership team this year.

I will be spending some time this week observing the lessons being taught by our excellent instructors. If you bump into me, don’t be afraid to introduce yourself!

Finally, a word on uniforms. We have had a shipment of uniforms arrive, so all cadets should check the supply room door for a list of uniforms ready to pick up. This list will be available in 5 Brouillette as well.

Good luck to the biathlon team as they compete in the Patrol Race on Sunday!

706 Hike-a-Thon Fundraiser October 3rd –  24th 2019

As part of their upcoming Fall Field Training Exercise, the cadets will be taking part in a Hike-a-Thon on Sunday, November 2nd. The squadron will hike 706 kilometers collectively.

Cadets are seeking contributions in support of their participation in this event.

The fundraising goal for each cadet is 76$.  

Funds raised directly support the cadet flight training program and other cadet activities!

Contributions - cash, cheque or e-transfer – can be sought by using the following Hike-A-Thon form. Charitable tax receipts will be issued, if indicated on the form, for donations totaling 10$ or more.  

Why do we fundraise at 706 Squadron?

Fundraising helps to provide many of the fun activities that you enjoy during the training year. Things like: flying days, trips, biathlon, band, drill, sports nights, mess dinner, parades, and more!

Fundraising is not optional! Everyone's help is needed.


Share your fundraising goal through social media or email with friends and family. Here’s an example:

As a proud member of the 706 Snowy Owl Air Cadet Squadron, I am participating in a Hike-A-Thon fundraiser to help support all of the terrific activities for cadets. Our whole squadron is going to hike 706 kilometers – collectively (e.g. 100 cadets X 7.6 km each). My fundraising goal is $76.00.

I am a member of the 706  ______(e.g. drill team biathlon team, band, marksmanship team, public speaking team) and we could really use your support.
