The Army Cadet League of Canada (ACLC) is pleased to announce the four recipients of the 2019 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:
- 2615 Victoria Lions RCACC, Avalon, NL
- 3013 Commando RCACC, Cochrane, ON
- 2943 Campbell River Eagles, Campbell River, BC
- 2632 Halifax West RCACC, Halifax, NS
These grants are available each year. For more details refer to Policy 17.1 on our Awards, Grants and Bursaries page
