CMR Saint-Jean Entry Class of 1970: Entry into the Old Brigade Project
50 Years since Prep Camp, for the CMR Entry Class of 1970, arrives in August 2020. No matter how long you were at CMR St-Jean (with attendance or not at Kingston or Royal Roads), 2020 is the year our Class enters the Old Brigade. Our Class has created a fund, Fonds du CMR Saint-Jean 1970-1975 Fund, to give something back to the College where we started our adult lives.
The four years I spent at RMC was a life-altering event for me. It just made perfect sense that I should give back to the Institution that has contributed so much to my own personal and professional development over the years.

The Bilingualism Club is a way for me to practice my French in a fun environment outside of SOLET. Each week, we meet on Thursday to play games and converse in French.

This was something we would not get in Kingston.

Mottershead Battlefields Tour 2020: an ex-cadet’s perspective
This was not exclusively army focused as we heard presentations from both staff and cadets on the role of our soldiers, sailors and airmen. The weather was cold and windy and at times wet. We could only imagine how it felt fighting in this weather so long ago. There were times I felt that I could hear the voices of those souls who had died on the battlefields.
