NL Cadet Fall Training Plan
Please find below an update regarding the NL Cadet Training plan for the Fall.
The Navy League of Canada requirements are based on recommendations by the Public Health Agency of Canada and will be modified to take into account the individual needs of the Divisions and the NL Cadet Corps.
Over the last few weeks we have been monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and its developments in Canada. As the Navy League Cadet program Fall session is near, we have developed a gradual and staged approach to restarting the program, which will be conducted in two phases.
As part of Phase I, and based on the Facility Availability survey that was distributed in July 2020, an analysis of the information must be reviewed in advance of any resumption of training.
Only once the analysis is completed, and with the approval of the Division President, will in-person training be authorized. The approval will be based on the survey results and the recommendations of the Branch President, in accordance with Provincial/Local Health Agencies.
Note: Facility Surveys – EN
As a starting point, only Officers and Volunteers will be permitted to re-enter the workspaces effective 1 September. This of course, is based on the Facility Manager authorizing The Navy League of Canada to enter the premises.
Effective 1 September, the new NL Cadet Training Year can commence with the use of the Google Classroom.
Effective 1 October, in-person training will be authorized based on the maximum allowable number of participants and the unit’s ability to practice physical distancing in order to be in compliance with the Provincial Health Authority and/or Local Health Services.
Any Parent/Guardian may opt out of having their child participate in the in-person training and therefore the Google Classroom shall remain a viable option to actively participate in the NL Cadet Training Program. More specifically, we can not make in-person training mandatory for everyone.
As a national institution with a large geographical footprint, the Navy League of Canada holds the health and safety of the cadets, members, volunteers, and their families in our highest priority. To this end, we encourage our members to remain vigilant and follow the recommendations from their local health authorities to their best ability.
The Navy League is created a COVID-19 Safety Protocol and Policy for NL Cadet Corps and Branches – it is available at the COVID-19 OneDrive Portal.
