Officer Cadet Recruit Joining Instructions 2023 Welcome Letter

Dear Future Officer Cadet,

On behalf of the Commandant, Brigadier-General Pascal Godbout, 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 your service 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 your military training, career progression, and overall welfare as a member of RMC and the CAF. This letter is intended to provide you with information to introduce you to the College program and the expectations RMC has of you.
