132 SPITFIRE ROYAL CANADIAN AIR CADET SQUADRON
Part of the Air Cadet General Training will be held at CFB Connaught in Ottawa instead of Trenton
By now, some of you may have heard through various means that a mould issue has come to light in the modular accommodations “Mods” at Trenton. These buildings are under the control of the base so the situation was not detectable by the training centre. Unfortunately, they cannot be serviceable in time for the summer training season. As such, various contingencies were considered but these barracks being unavailable for use represents a loss of approximately 250 bed spaces that we would otherwise use for a mixture of adult staff, staff cadets and some course cadets.
The end decision was to re-allocate 200 of the 355 cadets attending General Training on each serial to Connaught National Cadet Training Centre in Ottawa for this summer as a temporary measure. This obviously means that with the re-allocation of cadets, comes the re-allocation of associated staff.
Here’s what you need to know: If you got on to camp in Trenton, your offer to go to camp still stands. Warrants will be calling around within the next 48 hours to confirm with those individuals it affects. the dates (currently) remain the same. For those effected, here are the joining instructions for CFB Connaught.
