Is this meant to include CIC?

Negative. The Reserves fall under the VCDS branch.

Besides, a concession to the CIC for the fact that no one in the real military would ever actually listen to CIC officers is that they don't have to listen to us either.

Somewhat related - a friend of mine is supposed to be on the big RCAF Colour Party thing in Toronto in Sept and some of the CAF social media pics have them practicing.  The officers are wearing the old school blue and gold sword belts (not the plastic white ones). 

If we're going full steam ahead (behind?) on this whole tradition thing, I wouldn't be surprised if forage caps are next...although as someone who wore them the last trade, they aren't comfortable.

They are if you have a '50 Mission Cap' ;)

"according to Downie the intended theme in the lyrics was that a junior pilot would work their cap in to look like a fifty mission cap, "so as to appear that you had more experience than you really did."

Once we get the RCAF sorted out, next up is Space Force.

Well, I stand corrected.

The correct Cyber trade badge:
