1. The Commander National Cadet and Junior Canadian Rangers Support Group is proud to announce the official Cadet and Junior Canadian Rangers Mobile Application (CJCR App) to all members and supporters of Canadian Cadet Organizations (CCO).
2. CJCR App mirrors and reutilizes the current Canadian Armed Forces App, with content and functionality customized to the Natl CJCR Sp Gp. The CJCR App is a platform that is designed to provide COATS members, cadets and stakeholders with updates from leadership, access to social media feeds, as well as a variety of resources.
3. Initial testing with adult staff members has taken place and now the next phase of the implementation, our final BETA testing, is underway. We invite the remainder of the CJCR App audience, including Cadets, Junior Canadian Rangers, Staff, Volunteers, Adult Committee (AC) members, Canadian Rangers, Parents and League members, to take part in the BETA testing to ensure we capture the intended users’ experiences and feedback, which will be critical to the overall success of the CJCR App development and deployment.
4. Although this app is expected to provide top-down communication and easier access to support and resources to everyone involved with the CCO, the primary goal of these trials remains to obtain end-user feedback on the overall functionality, content, performance, and quality of the product in both official languages.
5. To participate, users must have an iOS device or an Android device, plus an account with the respective App Stores for these platforms.
