Bravo Zulu to Sub Lt (N) Matthew Batten of 58 RCSCC Quinte on being awarded The Cadets & Junior Canadian Rangers Commendation, a National Award. HIs efforts to develop amateur radio training within his Corps' complimentary training program, and then establishing cadet radio station VA3GKY, are laudable.
We are very pleased and proud to announce the 24 Ontario Division Sea Cadets who have been selected by the Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Education Foundation to receive post secondary scholarships.
The Foundation received 106 applications from very worthy candidates throughout the country and was able to award $100,000 to 80 very capable and deserving recipients. These scholarships are possible due to the support of individual donors as well as a number of key partnerships with Irving Shipbuilding, the Naval Association of Canada’s Endowment Fund, WEIR Canada and CN Rail.
Congratulations and Bravo Zulu to our 2021 Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Scholarship Recipients! We wish them all the best in their academic pursuits!

Navy League of Canada COVID-19 Vaccination Policy
Effective September 30, 2021, the policies related to Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC) in person training and activities issued in the Navy League Cadet Program COVID 19 Policies and Procedures July 27, 2020 and the Navy League Cadet Program Return to In-Person Training and Recovery Plan July 29, 2021 (both available on the Division website) will now include a requirement of full vaccination for all Navy League officers, instructors, visitors, guests, and volunteers* who will have direct contact with Navy League Cadets. (* Note: While all Navy League Cadets and Instructors are “volunteers” we have used the term volunteers more broadly in this policy for the wider range of screened volunteers to include Branch Members, parents, and community members as well as Sea Cadets who may be assisting with Navy League Cadet Corps.)
If a NL Officer or Volunteer cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons or chooses not to be fully vaccinated, the policy allows that they may be permitted to continue supporting Branch and Corps activities remotely in order to ensure that they can meaningfully and safely provide support to the Navy League of Canada.
Until a provincial standard is confirmed for Ontario, proof of vaccination may include the electronic receipt or other means of recognized documentation from a pharmacy, physician, or Regional/Local Public Heath system along with photo ID. Cadet Units are required to maintain a rigorous attendance records as training takes place, which will serve to assist with contact tracing.
The NL Cadet Population (aged 9 – 11 years) is not yet eligible to be vaccinated, which makes them a vulnerable population. Our first priority has always been and must continue to be the safety of our Cadets, our Volunteers and our NL Officers. Thank you for your continued support in our communities.
