2990 Lorne Scots Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps was founded in February 1983 and was originally sponsored by the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry. As part of the Halton Region, the Lorne Scots Regiment adopted 2990 RCACC effective August 1996 as part of the Lorne Scots Peel Dufferin and Halton Regiment.
Today, the 2990 Corps is a proud unit, parading out of the Milton Fair grounds, with a strong sense of both community involvement and Regimental Pride. The Corps is involved in many community events and provides support to organizations such as the Milton Legion and the Halton Women’s Shelter. Cadets from the 2990 have taken part in advanced training including parachuting, leadership, marksmanship, physical education and music. 2990 Cadets have also been accepted for paid Staff positions at summer camps, and have taken part in international exchanges and expeditions which have included Scotland and the Canadian Military Cemetery and Memorial at Vimy Ridge, France. In February 2013 the Corps travelled to Quebec and took part in a five day 30th Anniversary Inter-Provincial Exchange and visit with Corps 2831 Mont-Bruno.
Our Cadets leave the Corps with new and improved skills and the self confidence to move successfully through post-secondary education and on to rewarding types of employment. While it is not required nor expected some move on to proud military careers or return as civilian or Cadet Instructor Corps officer instructors.
