Welcome to the 2483 Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps.

We are a free program for youth aged 12-18.

The corps is located at CFB Work Point at the  Nixon Gym in Esquimalt and parades weekly on Tuesday, September to June, from 1815 – 2100 (6:15 – 9 PM). Senior Cadets (Gold Star+ and MCpl+) are asked to stay behind to derief nightly and are finished at 2115hrs (915pm).  Directions to the building can be found here.

Additional activities on other days include band, marksmanship, orienteering, expeditions, leadership activites and much more!

FAQ- Uniforms & Supply

Uniforms are on loan from the cadet unit at no cost. New cadets will be sized within the first 1-4 weeks the cadets arrive- it may take time for some uniform pieces to arrive as they arrive through the mail. There will be a day dedicated to uniform outfitting in September. Returning cadets have been given a letter to fill out to report any changes in sizes required for uniform exchange. For any uniform issues cadets are to see Capt Yarmoshuck (our Supply Officer) during any regular training night (Tuesdays Nights).
