The Cadet Program is supported by a number of outstanding organizations:
- The Canadian Armed Forces, through the Department of National Defence
- The Navy League of Canada
- The Army Cadet League of Canada
- The Air Cadet League of Canada
These organizations support the Cadet Program by providing for uniforms and equipment, covering travel and training expenses, providing pay for CIC officers, acquiring local corps and squadron facilities, and providing telephone and Internet service. They also arrange for the administration of awards, scholarships and bursaries for eligible cadets and cadet leaders.
The Canadian Armed Forces and the Department of National Defence share responsibility for the Cadet Program along with their civilian partners, the Navy League of Canada, the Army Cadet League of Canada and the Air Cadet League of Canada. Each of these organizations has a multi-layered structure, with a national headquarters in Ottawa, provincial or regional offices and a presence at the local unit or community level.
