AWARDS

RECOGNIZING GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENTS

MEDALS

Medals are prestigious awards that are worn on a cadets uniform. These medals can be awarded at the cadet corps.

The Lord Strathcona Medal (LSM) is the highest Award which can be bestowed upon a Cadet in recognition of exemplary performance in physical and military training.

The Medal and the accompanying Certificate of Merit are awarded by the Lord Strathcona Trust. The issue and wearing of the LSM is authorized by the Chief of the Defence Staff. Each Army Cadet corps has the opportunity to award one medal in each training year, but the award of the medal is to be based solely on the availability of a worthy candidate. Awarding the LSM annually is not mandatory and is not a matter of any custom for a particular appointment or by seniority alone.

This medal is selected by the Commanding Officer on the advice of corps officers and NCOs.


 

This medal is presented to a cadet who, over many years, has actively participated in community service activities and works exceptionally well with fellow cadets, volunteers and unit officers.
