International Women’s Day 2017

On this International Women’s Day 2017, the Air Cadet League of Canada would like to recognize the commitment and contribution of all the women within its ranks. They are the cadets who embody the spirit of leadership, teamwork and citizenship at the core of our program. They are the members and volunteers who give countless hours of their time and without whom many activities in a squadron would not take place. They are the Cadet Instructors Cadre (CIC) officers who are responsible for all the cadet training, supervision and administration. Let’s also not forget the many others who, in different capacities, work tirelessly to make sure the Air Cadet program is the best it can be. Without the hard work of these exemplary women, the Air Cadets would not be what it is today. So, on this International Women’s Day and as part of the Women Of Aviation Worldwide Week, the Air Cadet League of Canada expresses its gratitude to all women who strive to make a difference in their community every day.
