Dec13_CCGC_arial_view
As one of the most formidable institutions developing strong Canadians responsible for protecting our northern waters, the Canadian Coast Guard College continues to live up to its solid reputation.

The Canadian Coat Guard College is a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to turning out the greatest defenders of Canada’s 243 000 kilometre coast line.

Established in 1965, the College is known for its quality education and reliable and distinctive programs Training is offered in both French and English and the College includes a training facility, administration building and a residential building, making it unique on an international spectrum. Located on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, students have easy access to the environment they will later be defending.

The College recruits by going to career or job fairs and by visiting high schools to educate students on its programs. Canadian Coast Guard College hopefuls can apply to the College online. The selection process is difficult and the competition is stiff. According to College Executive Director, Brian Leblanc, “there are hard and fast academic requirements.”

Full transcripts and academic records from secondary and post-secondary institutions are reviewed. While certain academic requirements vary from province to province or territory, all applicants must have at least a Grade 12 language credit and be proficient in certain math and physics courses.

Although some of what is taught takes place in the classroom cadets receive realistic applied training. Sometimes using simulators, they are faced with true-to-life situations that could arise while on the job.

“There is an academic portion including math, physics, labs and where students learn theory, ” said Leblanc. “But it is also very hands-on. They will learn seamanship, the specific machinery. Engineering cadets learn welding and about the equipment.”

Leblanc says, “we’re also pretty heavy on physical fitness.We have a great facility for cadets to maintain their health. All in all, it’s a very well-rounded program.”

Honing its slogan “Nil sine cura” or “Attention to Detail”, the Canadian Coast Guard College looks for applicants who not only meet the grade and academic requirements but have an active interest in navigation or engineering and, of course, it can’t hurt to have a background working around water. Other values they look for in applicants are professionalism and integrity.

“With the legalization of gay marriage, faith has been violated and we’ve been forced to respond,” said Charles McVety, a leader of several evangelical Christian organizations that oppose gay marriage and president of the Canada Christian College in Toronto.
“Traditionally people of faith in Canada have not been politically active,” he said. “But now we’re finally seeing organizations that are professionalizing what was a very amateur political movement.”
Mr. McVety, who recites from memory the decision of an Ontario judge in 2003 that paved the way for gay marriages, has organized dozens of rallies attracting altogether some 200,000 supporters
