Cadets can receive a few awards for their performance, community service or even bravery. Cadets are also able to receive any Canadian Order, Decoration or Medal that is available to Canadian citizens, such as the Medal of Bravery. Cadets also have a number of scholarships that they are able to apply for to assist them with post secondary education costs. For more information on Canadian Medals, visit the Governor General’s website at: www.gg.ca.
