Effective 2 May 73 the Corps redesignated as Timmins Legion Cadet Corps and sponsor changed to Branch 88, Royal Canadian Legion, Timmins. The Corps was placed on probation 11 Feb 74 due to an insufficient number of personnel until 25 May 75 (letter 1085-11 (DCOS Pers) refers). According to the 1975 annual inspection report the probation was removed.
