The corps is part of the Canadian Cadet Organization; a youth program aimed at providing Canada's youth ages 12-18 with unique training opportunities in citizenship, leadership, active living and much more!
The aims of the organization are to instill attributes of citizenship and leadership, promote a healthy and active lifestyle, and stimulate interest in the Navy, Army and Air elements of the Canadian Armed Forces.
RCSCC ADMIRAL MOUNTBATTEN has had a long and proud history within the Sudbury community since 1943. We serve our community through an engaging youth program aimed at building the leaders of tomorrow and promoting volunteerism, citizenship and healthy living.
Our namesake, Lord Louis Mountbatten, 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma, allowed the corps to carry his name "provided they do well". Throughout our history, the corps has earned national recognition as being the top cadet corps in Canada, as well as multiple awards nationally and provincially on the field of competition.
The corps continues to uphold Mountbatten's legacy, which is reflected in our motto "It Can Be Done", challenging today's youth to overcome personal and professional obstacles with the life skills they learn here. The cadet organization as a whole and indeed Mountbatten, has contributed to the success of many individuals in whatever career path they chose, both in the military or in civilian life.
We meet Monday evenings 6:00PM-10:00PM at the Sudbury Armoury for weekly mandatory training and activities. You will also have the opportunity to experience other activities like competition teams during certain weekends. Our regular training year is typically held between the months of September to June, observing holidays and school breaks.
Another big component to the Cadet Organization includes Summer Training Opportunities, where you will have the chance to apply to specialty courses that take place anywhere between 3 to 6 weeks long at one of the Cadet Training Centres across Canada. Some of these courses even offer qualifications that can be used in civilian life, such as sailing levels boating qualifications and first aid.
The Canadian Cadet Organization is a non-for profit organization that is supported by both the Department of National Defence and our civilian sponsoring committee, the Navy League of Canada. There is no cost to join, and uniforms are provided.
