Four Army Cadet Corps Receive Prestigious Grant
Ottawa, July 2, 2018 – The Army Cadet League of Canada (ACLC) is pleased to announce the four recipients of the 2018 Gerard Buckley Cadet Fund (GBCF).
The GBCF was created to assist Cadet Corps with the creation and maintenance of optional activities not supported by the Department of National Defense. Cadet Corps are selected based upon the type of activities proposed, the overall benefit to the cadets and the Cadet Corps’ ability to raise funds within a community, which at times can be limited. Since its creation in 2001, the GBCF has awarded over $250,000.00 to support local Cadet Corps in over 400 communities across Canada. This year’s recipients are:
- 2685 Yukon Regiment, RCACC, Whitehorse, YK
- 3067 Lillooet, RCACC, Lillooet, BC
- 2908 Beauvoir, RCACC, Pointes-aux-Trembles, QC
- 2884 Royal Canadian Engineers, RCACC, Glencoe, ON
Each Army Cadet Corps shall be presented with $3,000 at a local ceremony in the coming weeks.
As a civilian not-for-profit corporation, The Army Cadet League of Canada is committed to supporting The Royal Canadian Army Cadets in a strong partnership with the Department of National Defence and local communities across Canada by developing policies and procedures to achieve the aims and objectives of the Army Cadet movement in particular.
