The Army Cadet League of Canada (ACLC) is pleased to announce the four recipients of the 2018 Gerard Buckley Cadet Fund (GBCF).
The GBCF was created to assist Cadet Corps with the creation and maintenance of optional activities not supported by the Department of National Defense. Cadet Corps are selected based upon the type of activities proposed, the overall benefit to the cadets and the Cadet Corps’ ability to raise funds within a community, which at times can be limited. Since its creation in 2001, the GBCF has awarded over $250,000.00 to support local Cadet Corps in over 400 communities across Canada. This year’s recipients are:
- 2685 Yukon Regiment, RCACC, Whitehorse, YK
- 3067 Lillooet, RCACC, Lillooet, BC
- 2908 Beauvoir, RCACC, Pointes-aux-Trembles, QC
- 2884 Royal Canadian Engineers, RCACC, Glencoe, ON
