Natl CJCR Sp Gp Orders and Instructions​

Natl CJCR Sp Gp Orders provide guidance with respect to Natl CJCR Sp Gp policy and procedures on a wide range of matters relevant to the Natl CJCR Sp Gp operations and administration. They are issued to supplement and amplify existing orders and regulations, and provide direction on matters specific to the Natl CJCR Sp Gp.

Cadet Administrative and Training Orders (CATOs)

CATOs are issued by Natl CJCR Sp Gp to supplement Queen's Regulations and Orders for Cadets (QR(Cadets)), amplify Canadian Forces Administrative Orders (CFAOs), replace Canadian Forces Cadet Policies and Procedures (CFCPP), and to minimize the requirement for specialized Region Orders and Instructions.
Be advised that the CATOs are in the process of being superseded by Natl CJCR Sp Gp Orders, manuals, standard operating procedures (SOPs) or other instruments, or are being cancelled completely with no replacement instrument, as required.  As such, CATOs are neither being written nor amended.


CANCDTGENs provide information about programs, policies, and events that affect all members of the Natl CJCR Sp Gp.

Cadet Instructors Cadre Training Instructions (CICTIs) are issued by Deputy Chief of Staff (DCOS), Trg Ops/Plans/Dev to supplement Cadet Administration and Training Orders (CATOs).

CICTIs expand upon CATOs by detailing procedural instructions necessary to harmonize business processes and / or standardize operating procedures. This in turn ensures efficient delivery of training to a single national standard and consistent administration of CIC trainees regardless of where the training is delivered.
