Civilian Staff

Civilian Support Staff

The Squadron’s Civilian Instructor (CI) and Civilian Volunteer (CV) support staff to provide assistance to the officers in the operation of the Squadron. Civilian Staff, like the officers, come from all walks of life. These volunteers are attracted to the Air Cadet program for a wide variety of reasons. Some may have had previous Military Service, some may have become involved because a child was involved, others may have been cadets when they were younger, and some just want to support a youth program that helps develop Canada’s next generation.
