Largest officer occupation marks centennial
“To instil in youth the attributes of good citizenship, and leadership, promote physical fitness and stimulate an interest in the sea, land, and air activities of the Canadian Forces.”
Almost 8 000 officers represent the CF from coast to coast to coast in large cities and hamlets in all regions of the country. They are members of the CF Reserve Cadet Instructors Cadre (CIC), the largest officer occupation in the CF, and they will mark 100 years of service to Canada in 2009.
The cadet organizations—Royal Canadian Sea, Army and Air Cadets—are part of the nation’s fabric because of the dedication and service of thousands of adults who lead and mentor teenagers in their community. While each of the cadet organizations has a different individual history, the great legacy of youth leadership applies to all members of the modern-day CF Reserve CIC.
What is now the modern day CF CIC Branch is the result of the unification of the CF in 1969 and the subsequent consolidation of cadet instructors to the Cadet Instructors List. The Cadet Instructors List was renamed the CIC in 1994. Centennial events During the first week of May 2009, several events in Ottawa will mark the centennial including the presentation of a new camp flag.
As well, events, displays and speeches will recognize the centennial at local cadet corps and squadrons, at each of the summer training centres, at regional cadet instructor schools and at regional headquarters.
The CF CIC centennial is an opportunity to highlight the unique service that is provided by these dedicated officers.
