About Us

2472 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps is one of three army cadet corps in the city of Vancouver, BC.  We operate out of the Bessborough Armoury in the Arbutus Ridge neighbourhood which is very close to Kitsilano.

All army cadet corps across the country are affiliated with a Canadian Army regiment in the Canadian Forces. The 2472 RCACC is affiliated with the 15 Field Artillery Regiment, of the Royal Canadian Artillery, which is the only artillery regiment on the Vancouver Mainland.  This affiliation allows our cadets the privilege of wearing the same accoutrements as the soldiers of the 15 Fd Regt (RCA).

To learn more about us please read our history.

Meeting Times:

  • Parade Night – Tuesdays from 1815h until 2130h
  • Rifle Team – Friday from 1700h until 2100h

In addition to Tuesday night parades, our corps runs three-weekend trips per training year.  These are used to give cadets experience in the outdoors.  We also plan citizenship activities and adventure training (such as rock climbing) several times a year.
