OTTAWA BRANCH CELEBRATING 125th ANNIVERSARY OF NAVY LEAGUE IN CANADA.
The Ottawa Branch of the Navy League is planning a time capsule activity to commemorate the 125th Anniversary of the Navy League of Canada and is inviting cadets, staff, and anyone interested to submit a small memento of what being a cadet means to them, or what the Navy League signifies. The Ottawa Branch is extending the invitation to members of Ontario Division to submit an item for inclusion as well.
These items will need to be small enough to fit inside a one-foot (cubed) box and provided to the Ottawa Corps or Branch by Nov. 14 for inclusion in the capsule, which will be sealed during a media event on Nov. 28 outside the HMCS Carleton building in Ottawa. The capsule will then be housed inside a glass display case in the building until the summer when it will be buried for the next 50 years.
Please contact email@example.com if you would like to add any items to the 125 anniversary time capsule.

MAKING THE MOST OF A BAD SITUATION
When the pandemic restrictions went into place earlier this year, cadets from RCSCC QUINTE made the best of the situation, and set to work on completing the Basic Amateur Radio Qualification Course (BARQ) virtually. Five cadets have successfully written their Amateur Radio qualification exams and the rest of this enterprising group is expected to qualify soon. Bravo Zulu to everyone involved in this initiative! For more information, see the document in the "Other Documents of Interest" section on the Branch Resources page.
SEA CADET RANK CHANGES
Effective 15 September 2020, ranks within the Cadet Program have been updated to meet the intent of inclusiveness as they are now gender neutral. The changes align with the action currently underway by the RCN in regards to changes to their rank structure, reflecting a more gender neutral title. These changes also reflect comments made through previous consultations with Sea Cadets who supported more gender neutral ranks.
There is no need to change Navy League ranks as they are already gender neutral.
The new ranks for the Sea Cadet Program are as follows:
CADET and JUNIOR CANADIAN RANGER App

BELLEVILLE BRANCH GOOD NEWS
On Saturday, September 12th, Belleville Branch members celebrated the opening of a new Lower Dock, a storage shed and new landscaping, thanks to a $40,000 grant from the Parrott Foundation. Our Division President, Jennifer Bennett, and local dignitaries were also in attendance for the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
It is with profound sadness that we say goodbye to Ann Keeley-Meloche. For those of us who had the pleasure of knowing and working with Ann, we saw first-hand her love for, and incredible pride and support of, the cadet program. We also witnessed her amazing work over the decades and her profound impact on thousands of cadets, officers, staff, and volunteers. Ann will be sadly missed as a gifted fundraiser, public relations champion, and integral part of the Brantford Branch. Her contributions to Ontario Division will also be missed; Ann was a NL Ontario Division Board Member and Chairperson of the Centennial Committee Celebrations. Our condolences to Terry and all of their family members.
The Ontario Division Board of Directors is responsible for supporting the Branches in Ontario with developing the youth in over 60 communities.
The Navy League of Canada was established in 1895 to promote an interest in Maritime Affairs generally throughout Canada. In 1918, the Boys Naval Brigade was formed and would eventually become the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets. In 1950, the Navy League Cadet Program was established.
The Navy League of Canada has a presence in over 60 communities. Our youth programs benefit young Canadian every year, and we continue to grow.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
