    Monthly Pay after deductions - Questions [Merged]

    Unfortunately it is hard to give a proper estimate as allowances/deductions will be different from person to person. I am currently attending CFLRS, married with 3 dependants, my last pay was somewhere around $1150. I believe this includes PLD and most likely separation expense, as well...

    What's the dumbest thing you heard said today?

    I also have locked my keys in my car while it was running. I now carry a spare key in my wallet, which usually is a great thing to have unless I manage to lock my wallet in my car as well... And I believe the horrible liquid you were referring to was Baja Rosa, there is also Baja Luna and Baja...

    Monthly Pay after deductions - Questions [Merged]

    I believe Quebec has the highest income tax rate in Canada, if not than definitely one of the highest. The good thing is that when you file your income tax the rate you pay is that of the province in which you lived on December 31st.

    Going back to St Jean

That was 2 weeks ago and there was snow in Saint Jean, Not sure what everyone's definition of winter is but I believe that snow on the course would add higher risk to possible injury. We didn't...

    Going back to St Jean

    Not entirely sure of how bad the break is/was, but I do know they gave her 8 weeks ETA until she could properly walk again (not sure if this was just an ETA on walking, or if it was for a full recovery). The break happened about 3 weeks ago now, and a week ago she was off her crutches and...

    Is the internet stick useful?

    I believe an internet stick can be very useful, I am in the midst of BMQ right now, and plan on having a stick to take back with me when my leave ends in Jan. I have looked into both Rogers and Telus. Telus offers a 21.1mbps model and a 7mbps model. the 21.1 is free on a 2 or 3 year contract...

    Yet Another Upgrade...

    I like the new look, but I have lost the milnet.ca colours. I have just all white and it is kind of hard on the eyes. Anyway for me to get back to the grey? Other then that, everything looks great

    Just applied.

    Congrats on taking the first step. Are you aware that both Armoured and Infantry are closed for the remainder of the fiscal year? If you were set on one of these positions more-so than MP perhaps you may wish to research other positions? Unless you are willing to wait until March/April when...

    All about MilPoints
