The Air Cadet program operates within a partnership agreement between the Department of National Defense (DND) and The Air Cadet League of Canada (ACL), a civilian volunteer organization. The British Columbia Provincial Committee (BCPC) of the ACL is administered by a five person Executive committee under the direction of a ten member Board of Directors. The Directors are elected by the members of BCPC at the Annual General Meeting. BCPC's office is located at Boundary Bay Airport, Delta, BC, and its day-to-day operations are administered by a full time Chief Administrative Officer and a part time Office Assistant.

There are currently 57 Squadrons in BC, geographically grouped into eight Wings, each with a Wing Chair.

The main areas of responsibility for the British Columbia Provincial Committee include:

  • The formation of new squadrons
  • Providing training and support for Squadron Sponsoring Committees
  • Assisting with the recruitment of officers and cadets into the program
  • Publicizing and promoting cadet activities and programs.
  • Maintaining our fleet of 7 tow planes and twelve gliders.
    • For the past several years, our glider flying program has received generous financial assistance from the British Columbia Gaming Commission by way of its "Direct Access Grant Program".
  • Administering the Effective Speaking Program in BC.
  • Processing applications for National Scholarship Courses
  • Sponsoring Work Experience programs with industry partners to provide opportunities for Cadets to earn Graduation Transition Credits
  • Administering the Air Cadet Foundation of British Columbia, a charitable society established to maintain and grow the Air Cadet Program in British Columbia.
