Site Map

Welcome to the Site Map, this is the main page from which you can visit and view all the information on the site. Click on any of the blue headers to the left and you will be taken to the next page. Due to the size, quality and clarity of the photos, this site works best with high speed cable or DSL. We don't employ thumbnails.  We don't anticipate introducing flash animation or special effects as this is very much a content driven site with well over 12,000 pages of information. We would prefer to keep the site clean and easy to navigate. There is an enormous amount of information and images, don't forget to take a grid bearing! This site is about and for army cadets and staff, past, present and future. We hope you find the site easy to navigate. The website is currently mostly in English, though some sections are primarily French such as Valcartier & Cap Chat. We hope eventually to have the entire site translated to French. 

How big will this website become? The long term goal is to preserve all forms of Royal Canadian Army Cadet history, as a matter of course many items will end up in museums and displays across the country, these items will be photographed or scanned and electronically stored here. It is quite possible that in 10 years, as many as 100,000 photos, 1000 biographies of officers and key individuals and the extended history of all 3000+ cadets corps will be on line. This web site will constantly grow.

We look forward to your feedback to improve the site. If you would like to contribute old photos, newspaper articles, etc. Please contact us!
