Effective Speaking Provincial Competition
under5


To speak in public is a learned skill!


Good communication is an essential skill in today’s world. We are all called upon to speak to groups, be it in our social, professional or personal life.

The Effective Speaking Competition of the Air Cadet League is a contest, which is held at the local, regional, provincial, and national levels. These competitions enable our cadets to improve both their public presentations and to deliver their message more effectively.

Topics for the 2016-2017 Effective Speaking Competition:

  • The 150th Anniversary of Canada’s Confederation
  • Why the Air Cadet Program is important to Canada
  • Canada’s changing role as a peace-keeper
  • Drones – progress or threat?
  • Environmental stewardship of Canada’s waters.
  • Women in Aero-space
  • How do you balance your Cadet career with the rest of your life?
  • How did Vimy Ridge contribute to Canada’s recognition as a nation?


Provincial Competition took place on April 8, at Laval University.
