REMEMBRANCE DAY ACTIVITIES AND CHRISTMAS PARADES
The Navy League of Canada is providing additional direction concerning the upcoming Remembrance Day Services as well as the Christmas Parade activities with a continued focus on safety of NL Cadets, Officers and Volunteers. While these parades are traditionally outside, there is an added layer of risk because Cadets could find themselves shoulder-to-shoulder with members of the public who may not be wearing masks and are unvaccinated.
With regards to the Christmas Parades, there is an added likelihood of younger children participating in or attending the Santa Claus Parades. Given that this younger population is currently unvaccinated and the potential for large crowds of people gathering for these events, there is an increased level of risk for our cadets, officers and volunteers.
For these reasons, Navy League Cadets and Officers are not authorized to participate in any outdoor public Remembrance Day Service or Christmas Parades for 2021. However, NL Cadets and Officers are encouraged to participate in Remembrance Day Services in a virtual setting. The Navy League of Canada would like to invite you to share your photos or stories by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
NL Cadets who are attending a school ceremony on Remembrance Day are encouraged and authorized to wear their NL Cadet Uniform.
If you are in doubt about whether participation in a proposed activity is allowed or not, please contact the Division President for guidance. email@example.com
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.
