Captain Rachel Tracey was inducted as a member of the Rotary Club of Alliston on November 9th, 2020. Welcome Rachael!
 
My name is Captain Rachael Tracey. I am a Reserve (part-time) member of the Canadian Armed Forces as Cadet Instructors Cadre Officer within the Cadet Organizations Administration and Training Service sub-component. I have been enrolled as an Officer since November 2011. I am currently the Commanding Officer of Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps 53 Barrie (named after the HMCS Barrie, a WWII Flower Corvette funded by the citizens of Barrie). Before assuming Command this past June, I was the Corps Training Officer, responsible for planning and implementing the Corps yearly training schedule. Prior to moving to CFB Borden and joining RCSCC Barrie, I was an active member of  851 “Prince Edward” Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron in Picton, ON (where I ran the gamut from Supply Officer to Admin Officer to Trg O and occasional Officer Commanding) and 608 “Duke of Edinburgh” Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron (where I was the Admin O and Unit Cadet Conflict Management Advisor). 608 was also where I first served in the Canadian Cadet Organization as a Cadet myself from 2003 until 2009, when I had a brief stint as an Officer in the Regular Forces (permanent full-time) component of the CAF.
 
In my civilian life, I am a full-time member of the Federal Public Service with the Department of National Defence, currently working at the Regional Cadet Support Unit (Central) at CFB Borden. I am also the Founder of Youth Beyond Enterprises, the online resource for rural young entrepreneurs and young leaders, as well as a newly sworn-in Director on Nottawasaga Futures’ Board of Directors.
