Get Involved

Your support is important to the Navy League of Canada - Bowmanville Branch. There are many ways you can contribute, and every little bit goes a long way.


The Navy League of Canada is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a safe environment for our youth to make friends, learn life skills and develop leadership.


Sea Cadets do receive nominal support from Cadets Canada for their training program but non-mandatory training is paid for through fundraising. The entire Navy League Cadet program is provided through fundraising.

Your donations are tax deductible and can be made online using the                                button at the top of each page. Please complete your personal information to receive your tax receipt.


Navy League Cadets

There are different ways to get involved with the Navy League Cadet programme at the local level. We can use your help for things like driving cadets to weekend activities or running a canteen for special activities.

  • If you can devote time on a regular basis to the Corps, or if you have special skills (first aid, music, crafts, etc.) you could become a Cadet Instructor. Cadet Instructors are considered part of the Corps staff. If you are interested, there are training courses available for you to become a Navy League Officer.

  • Navy League Officers whose primary duties are to instruct cadets. Officers must be able to attend both regular Monday evening meetings and occasional weekend activities. There is an expectation that you will take training courses offered annually through our Navy League Division.


Any adult who wishes to work with Navy League Cadets MUST be registered and screened by the Branch. This process will include a reference check, a criminal records check and a vulnerable sector check.


Sea Cadets

Volunteering with the Sea Cadets is similar to volunteering with the Navy League Cadets. As a volunteer with the Sea Cadets, you will be asked to attend their regular Wednesday evening meetings and occasional extra activities. The Sea Cadet program is managed and supervised by CIC (Cadet Instructor Cadre) Officers, who are paid members of the Canadian Forces. If you do not wish to enroll in the Canadian Forces, you can volunteer as a Civilian Instructor (CI) and play an important part as well.


Please contact the Commanding Officer for more information at



This is the administrative component of the organization. We have different roles and levels of responsibility, depending on how much time you would like to contribute.  From executive roles, to fundraising or simply driving cadets for events, if you have a talent or interest you’d like to contribute it will be appreciated.
