The Corps Program is central to the overall foundation that sea cadets require to undertake the other components of the program. It focuses on giving all sea cadets, instruction and opportunities to develop knowledge and skills in a variety of subject areas while also introducing them to specialized activities.

The sea cadet corps program is primarily focused on maritime activities derived from the Canadian Navy and the civilian maritime community. It is comprised of the following established sea cadet activities as well as activities common to the Sea, Army and Air cadet programs:

The phase training program is conducted between September and June of each training year through a combination of training sessions and training days. The phase training program is divided into five phases. Normally a cadet will only attempt one phase training level in a given training year: Phase One; Phase Two; Phase Three; Phase Four; and Phase Five.

Each phase training level is divided into two compulsory components that must be completed by all cadets. The two components are mandatory activities and complementary activities.


For New Entry Cadets, the first year of their training. An introduction to the naval atmosphere through co-operation and fun.
