Who can join Sea Cadets?

Any Canadian citizen or permanent resident (i.e. landed immigrant) from the ages 12-18 may join.

How much does it cost to join?

There is no direct cost to any youth who wishes to join Sea Cadets. Cadets are however, expected to participate in corps fundraising activities from time to time. These initiatives help support optional and extra activities.

Parents are encouraged to join the Navy League Branch. The money raised from the annual membership fee is used towards corps activities and up-keep. For more information on joining the Greater Vancouver Branch of the Navy League of Canada, please email branch@vancouvercadets.com
