The Aboriginal Leadership Opportunity Year (ALOY) program is a program to give First Nation, Metis and Inuit young people an opportunity develop their leadership skills. ALOY will expose them to a rich and very proud military tradition at Royal Military College of Canada (RMC), to Aboriginal traditions and heritage as well as and preparing them for leadership roles.
The ALOY Cadets are measured against four components of the program, Military, Physical, Culture and Academic.
They will be challenged throughout the year in all components. RMC also offers a wide range of clubs and recreational activities. These clubs, which are normally organized and administered by Officer Cadets, provide an opportunity to participate in numerous military and civilian activities. Attending this program not only will they gain valuable lifelong skills but also friendships.
