211 Kiwanis Air Cadet Squadron history

The 211 Ottawa Kiwanis Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron was founded on 13 November 1942. In the more than seventy years that it has existed, it was always proudly sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa. The squadron’s first Commanding Officer was Vic Castledine and Allan Casteldine was recruited as first cadet.

The Air Cadet Organization originated in the early days of World War II when the war effort required young men to meet Canada's military obligations.
