59 Vancouver RCACS Restart Plan

Last update: 10 Jan 22

Our safety of our Cadets, Officers, Civilian Volunteers, Squadron Sponsoring Committee, and the public will always come first. As such, 59 Vancouver RCACS will be taking the lead from our Public Health authority and with instructions from the Cadets and Junior Canadian Rangers (CJCR), we have decided to adhere to strict guidelines by transitioning all activities to a virtual environment until further notice.

However, we are using this opportunity to monitor current daily COVID-19 cases weekly and updates will be provided as required.

59 Vancouver RCACS would like to remind everyone to take this time and review our COVID-19 Safety Guidelines here: https://59vancouver.ca/covid-19-info/


59 Vancouver RCACS will be taking the lead from our Public Health authority, and as such, with instructions from the Cadets and Junior Canadian Rangers (CJCR), we have modified our program to adhere to strict guidelines to run a dynamic, fun, and engaging program while keeping our Cadets, Officers, Civilian Volunteers, SSC and the public safe.

59 Vancouver’s goal is to safely transition to in-person training when practical while following all Public Health Orders. Our safety of our Cadets, Officers, Civilian Volunteers, Squadron Sponsoring Committee, and the public will always come first.

With consultations with our Cadets and Squadron Sponsoring Committee, 59 Vancouver RCACS has developed a Restart Plan as follows:

Step 1 – Virtual training

  • Continuing use of MS Teams to conduct virtual training. We are using this opportunity to monitor current daily COVID-19 cases and to develop a training program to adhere to strict guidelines to run a dynamic, fun, and engaging program while keeping our Cadets, Officers, Civilian Volunteers, SSC and the public safe.

Step 2 – Virtual and in-person hybrid training

  • No earlier than 11 Oct 2021
  • Restart of in-person optional teams such as Range, Ground School, and non-instrumental Band.
  • Transitioning into a hybrid training program that will allow half our squadron to attend in-person mandatory training at our location while the other half will conduct mandatory training virtually. The groups will alternate attending in-person training and virtual training every week.

Step 3 – In-person training

  • No earlier than Jan 2022
  • Transitioning into a fully in-person training program that will allow our entire squadron to attend in-person mandatory training. More details to follow on how this will work as we approach closer to this step.
  • We do not expect to create more than one training program for those cadets who are unable to get vaccinated and are not allowed to attend in-person training.
