Commanding Officer's Message

Welcome to our online home full of resources and information about our corps. I am Capt Gord Barrett, Commanding Officer of 2472 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, 15th Field Artillery Regiment.  

We have a very dynamic and challenging program for youth ages 12-18.  We parade every Tuesday from 1800hrs – 2130hrs at the 15th Field Artillery Armoury in beautiful Kitsilano, Vancouver.  Please see our contact page for location information.

Cadets is a place to meet new friends, be a part of a team and learn new skills in a positive environment.  Our cadet training year is from September to June and includes opportunities to participate in summer training activities and exchanges across the country and around the world.

I look forward to meeting you and having you become a part of our corps.  If you have any questions or need more information, please feel free to contact any of my staff on the contact page.  Also check out our activity calendar to see what we have coming up.
