Cadets will continue to enter HMCS Carleton from the entrance to the gate in the back parking lot (see map below). An officer will be at the entrance performing temperature and health checks.

Due to base restrictions and staffing requirements, cadets must arrive on time. Cadets arriving more than 5 minutes late will no longer be admitted.

Tag Days (pre-COVID) were part of-person fundraising activities for the Navy League of Canada Ottawa Branch (NLOB). As a result of COVID Tag Days have been put on hold for the foreseeable future. The NLOB supports NLCC Vice Admiral Kingsmill's training program in a wide range of ways including, but not limited to, uniforms, recreational and educational trips, equipment for training, and the purchase of awards to recognize Kingsmill cadets' achievements. The Navy League of Canada Ontario Division has partnered with "Micharity" to organize a structured process to collect and distribute donations to the Branch of your choice and send charitable receipts immediately. Please consider making an online donation to our sponsoring Branch (NLOB) in support of cadet activities in our community. To donate to the NLOB, the NLOB has set up a link on their home page at www.ottawanavyleague.org, or the link can be directly accessed by clicking HERE. Donations using this link will be forwarded from the Ontario Division to the Ottawa Branch. However, please include a dedication on the form to the "Ottawa Branch" with the subject "Donation" to firstname.lastname@example.org. This will help the NLOB monitor it locally. Your generous donations will have a huge impact on helping us deliver a youth program that is second to none and help young Canadians develop into our leaders of tomorrow. Thank you!
