Our Warrant?

The Navy League of Canada – Newmarket Branch received its warrant to operate NLCC Carinthia as a Navy League cadet corps on the 23rd of February 1977.  A copy of the original signed warrant appears to the right.

What else is there to know?

We are not a military program. The Navy League of Canada is a civilian organization. Our cadet program uses a naval theme as a platform to develop good citizenship, leadership, a sense of duty, self-discipline, teamwork, healthy living and respect for others.

Participation in weekly training nights is free. To help fund programs and cover the costs of uniforms, cadets and their parents are required to participate in fundraising activities. Some optional trips or events may have additional costs. Cadet uniforms are provided on loan by The Navy League of Canada. Cadets are required to maintain their uniforms and return them when they leave the program.
