Good afternoon all,
The staff are happy to announce the release of the squadron discord server!
For those who have never used discord, it is a free app meant for communications with both text and voice channels. You will need an account to use it, but it is a simple thing to set up.
This server will be used for communication between cadets and officers, releasing different announcements and challenges and flight and level communications. This will be a secondary method of communication alongside facebook and our website, and hopefully create an easier path for communication within the squadron.
This is an official server, so ranks and last names will be used, and cadets will be expected to behave in the discord server the same way they would with any other cadet interaction.
If you have any questions or concerns about the server, feel free to reach out to OCdt Pitre at firstname.lastname@example.org

For Her Country is a compelling podcast series that aims to inspire and educate listeners by profiling inspirational women leaders in the Canadian military. Each episode dives into their stories and provides perspective on life within the military from base training to deployments and the painful failures and stunning achievements that followed. The podcast is in honour of Captain Nichola Goddard, a young Artillery Officer who deployed to Afghanistan in 2006 and became the first Canadian woman soldier to die in a combat role at only 26 years old. Capt Goddard was an exceptional leader and a trailblazer, and the podcast guests model these qualities.
