There’s also the possibility for us to do some workshops and professional development in regards to mental health,” Bouchard said.

First-year cadet Stephan Kim said he is excited to move on from the previous, time-consuming ways he tracked down assistance. “If I needed to find help for a specific subject or anything, I really had to go look really hard — like ask a teacher where I could meet him and what his timings are,” Kim said.

“It really centralizes all the phenomenal resources that we have here to offer cadets,” said Cadet Wing Commander Gavin Omand. “It’s kind of a one-stop shop for academic, mental health and knowledge access points.”

Bouchard said the Success Centre is a work in progress. Elements will likely be added or removed as time passes.
