MEDICAL FORM: This document must be acknowledged in section 5 by the Parent/Guardian who holds legal parental authority over the cadet.
COMPLETING THIS FORM This form may be completed electronically and then printed or printed and then completed by hand. If it’s completed by hand, print in block letters. Until this form is properly completed and handed to the Cadet Administration Officer or designate, cadets shall not be authorized to participate in training and activities.
FOOD ALLERGIES It is important for Parents to be aware that the Navy League of Canada and their Corps do not have the mandate, are not equipped nor staffed to offer allergen-free foods or food preparation conditions. These limitations apply to meals and snacks prepared just as much by a caterer, volunteers or parents, and for all types of programmes, courses and activities conducted throughout the year, whether locally or away. The Navy League of Canada is concerned that for those with food allergies, sensitivities and intolerance it may not always be safe to participate in all training and activities. At Section 5, those with diet restrictions are required to indicate that they are aware of the stipulations mentioned above and still wish to participate in programmes, courses and activities during which meals are consumed.
MEDICATIONS Parents are to make the Commanding Officer or Medical Officer aware of any medications that their child may bring and that they may require during extended activities. The medications MUST be in original containers, preferably bubble packs, with the name, drug and dosage clearly labeled. Cadets who require an inhaler or EpiPen will need to carry them at all times in an appropriate fanny pack or other carry case. They should also make the staff aware of any health concerns that may impact their health and safety, or that of others. Please be advised that while your son/daughter is supervised by Members of the Navy League Cadet Corps, their care and safety is of primary concern. In the event of an incident/emergency our Members will perform all actions that are deemed necessary at the time, which may include calling for Emergency Services or other professional care in your absence. If there is a pre-existing medical condition, the Navy League’s Insurance Underwriter may limit coverage as a result of accident or injury related to that medical condition. If the Cadet or his/her Parents have any questions related to any topic on this form, they can contact the cadet corps Commanding Officer.
