Attendance Policy

Make sure you have the phone number or email address of your immediate supervisor!

Good attendance is key to your enjoyment, advancement and opportunities in cadets and throughout life. It is a way of demonstrating your level of commitment to an organization, person or cause. Properly prioritizing how we spend our time is an important life skill and Cadets is no exception to this.  Academic load, health concerns, or important family events are important and are considered valid reasons to miss training.

Many nominations and opportunities are heavily influenced by attendance. Cadets with good attendance records are more likely to be nominated for awards, medals, training opportunities and exchanges.  

*Cadets are expected to attend a minimum of 50% of mandatory training per month.*

Mandatory training refers to Tuesday parades, Annual Ceremonial Review (ACR) in June and citizenship functions (such as Remembrance Day in November, Vimy Day in April) held throughout the year.  If there are unique circumstances, taking a Leave of Absence should be considered. 

If you are unable to attend training please inform your immediate supervisor as soon as possible.  By doing so, you absence will be noted as 'excused.'  If we do not have any information on your status, you may be noted as 'AWOL.' 


Excused: where a member of 2472 RCACC misses training and informs their immediate supervisor of their intent to miss training.

Leave of Absence: a pre-determined period of time where a member of 2472 RCACC will not attend mandatory or optional training due to poor health, academic load, work commitments, family circumstances, travel, or or special circumstances. 

Absent Without Leave: (AWOL) where a member of 2472 RCACC misses mandatory training but does not provide advance notice of intent to miss training.
