The Air Cadet Program in Mississauga has shown considerable growth over the last 10 years. Prior to this year Mississauga hosted 2 Air Cadet Squadrons - No. 845 "Avro Arrow" Squadron in South/Central Mississauga and No. 800 "Black Forest" Squadron in North/West Mississauga.


With Cadet enrollment between the two squadrons topping 450 cadets it was decided to introduce a brand new squadron to the area. No. 789 "Lt R Hampton Gray VC" Squadron has formed this year in a more central location in Mississauga in order to serve prospective cadets from that area as well as to help to reduce the size of existing squadrons so that they can function better.

789 "Lt R Hampton Gray VC" Squadron parades (meets) on Thursday nights between the hours of 1830hrs and 2130hrs (6:30pm to 9:30 pm). The squadron is located at St. Joseph's Secondary School, 5555 Creditview Road Mississauga (near Creditview and Bristol).


Squadron cadets are between the ages of 12-18 years of age. For young people interested in joining we will be recruiting (taking on new members) in September of each training year and usually another group in January.


Watch the main page of the website for updates and information as we get closer to those dates. Existing cadets interested in transferring to 789 Squadron should send an email to info@789squadron.com for more information.
