Who Are We?

Dukes! 2290 BCR (101 DCOR) Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps is a non-profit youth organization. We parade every Thursday night during the school year between 6:00 and 9:00 pm at the Beatty Street Drill Hall located in downtown Vancouver. We pride ourselves on providing every cadet opportunities to develop the core skills needed for their adult life. That is why our program is 100% free. There are no activity fees, no registration cost, no yearly fees, and all our uniforms are provided for free.


Our Mission

The mission of the Cadet Program is to contribute to the development and preparation of youth for the transition to adulthood, enabling them to meet the challenges of modern society, through a dynamic, community-based program.

“What a tremendous program! Our 3 children have gone through the Cadet Program at 2290 and all have had excellent experiences, from FTX, to summer camps to just making new connections. It really helps them feel a part of their community and instills in them a sense of responsibility and pride as they build skills to lead their peers and junior cadets.” - Nyal Wilcox, Volunteer
