Pre COVID we paraded on Tuesday nights at 6:30pm (Sep–Jun) at the Sir Oliver Mowat Collegiate Institute in Scarborough, Ontario. Don’t worry, no experience is necessary, and feel free to bring a friend!

To actually register for cadets the following are required:

  1. proof of age: minimum 12 years old
  2. a completed CF 1158 – Application for Membership;  (please download and get a head start)
  3. one of the following pieces of identification of the applicant (the original will be required):
    1. a valid Canadian passport; 
    2. a birth certificate; 
    3. a valid resident card; or
    4. a valid identification card issued by a Canadian federal or provincial government agency
  4. If applicable, a copy of any court, tribunal decree, judgement, or legal limitations; and a copy of the relevant pages from the court decree or judgement or separation agreement if someone has “Limited Access Rights” to your son/daughter.
Proof of Age: Section 34 of the Personal Health Information Protection Act, 2004, of Ontario, prevents us from accepting a provincial health card as proof of age. However, do not forget to include your health card number and expiry date on your Application for Membership! For proof of age, please bring another form of government identification (your original birth certificate, passport, citizenship card, Canadian permanent resident (PR) card, etc).

If at any time you need assistance with completing these forms you can contact us by email at or by leaving a voicemail at (289) 395-2881.  Soon we hope you can come see us on a Tuesday night and we’ll be happy to assist you in person.
