    Alleged Institutional Racism/solutions in CAF (merged)

    I know this is a bit of a necro-quote, But I must say that I feel exactly the way EITS described back in 2016.  Especially this week after reading the "Defence Team Message" Monday morning at work. Felt like we were all being called racists. I expect a new "Named Mission" similar to Operation...

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    Sit rep from the Training centre, where I work. All of my instructors are scheduled to begin spring break Sat 21 Mar to Sun 29 Mar. 85% are on IR from Edmonton and really looking forward to a break.  Current CDS direction and Frag O's have little impact on their leave plans. All of my DP1...

    Let "The Journey" Begin

    As a 25 year Reg Force Infantry MWO, who has not spent more than 2 years in the same geographical area in the last 10 years, this makes releasing into a class B job for some stability look very attractive.  Perhaps I will call it "the journey" .

    The RCAF's Next Generation Fighter (CF-188 Replacement)

    There is an excellent research paper in the "Vimy Papers" on the CDA institute website about the fighter replacement program.  It is called "The Fourth Dimmension" I found it a grat insight into the procurement of aircraft and how badly it can be screwed up.

    Concerns Prompt Sweeping Review of Royal Military College- Nov. 2/ 2016

    Some most certainly are children, at least here at CMR St. Jean. At the beginning of first semestre we have several 16 yr olds and dozens of 17 yr olds.  Our staff need to take this into consideration in many décisions.  Parents have entrusted us with the care and education of their children...

    I am slowly learning.

    Collège Militaire Royal de Saint-Jean (CMR)

    Continuing the Orientation Program for an extra week would have been a "make work project". Because the students receive 6 weeks of basic training before arriving at CMR or RMC, the Orientation program can be much shorter. All the basic training stuff used to be during Orientation (marching...

    BMOQ Regular Force 2014 - 2017 [Merged]

    Hello, The RMC /CMR Officer Cadets on BMOQ mod 2 have their College cap badges, not their trade cap badges. Because you have been granted qualifications within your trade, if your course wishes you to wear the tri-service badge, I would put in a well formatted and nicely worded memo requesting...

    Regular Officer Training Plan (ROTP)-RMC 2000 - 2018 [Merged]

    It is very likely, but not guaranteed that people on the 27 June BMOQ mod 1 will go to College Militaire St Jean.  Just by looking at the dates on my calendar: BMOQ mod 1 dates 27 June to 12 Aug and CMR new student arrival is on the evening of 12 Aug. We receive a number of Anglophone students...

    All Memo Templates: (AVOTP, ED&T, File Number, OJT, OT, Release, Retention)

    This is the first i have heard of a memo NOT being required.  If this is true I wasted countless man-hours correcting and minuting memos as the PAT platoon WO in Wainwright and am still wasting time on these same memos as the QMSI at College Militaire Royal Saint-Jean.

    Pension Transfer Value / Lump Sum Pymt [Merged]

    These wait times seem ridiculous! I may put a memo in at the first of the year just in case I decide to retire.... every year for the next 10 years. Please tell me they pay you interest when that first pension check (several months worth at once) finally comes in. Do you know what the people I...
