Officer Cadet Recruit Joining Instructions 2019 Welcome Letter

Dear Future Officer Cadet,

On behalf of the Commandant, Brigadier-General Sébastien Bouchard, it is my honour to congratulate you on your selection to the Royal Military College of Canada (RMC).  It is a proud moment for you, and for Canada, as you embark upon a career in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF).  Doing so, through the demanding developmental and educational environment of RMC, is an unparalleled opportunity to establish an exemplary foundation in leadership, fitness, and bilingualism while attaining a world class undergraduate degree; less than four hundred Canadians receive this honour each year.

As the Director of Cadets, I am responsible for the military training, career progression, and your overall welfare as a member of RMC.  This letter is to provide you with information to introduce you to the College program and the expectations RMC has of you.
