Welcome to the 2483 Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps.

We are a free program for youth aged 12-18.

The corps is located at CFB Work Point at the  Nixon Gym in Esquimalt and parades weekly on Tuesday, September to June, from 1815 – 2100 (6:15 – 9 PM). Directions to the building can be found here.

Activities include band, marksmanship, orienteering, expedition, and much more!

To inquire about joining our corps – please contact us so we can set up an orientation meeting for the youth and their parents/guardians.

You can join any Tuesday we are active (please see our Upcoming activities tab) and can sign up electronically or in-person at the unit.
