    Didn’t even get my RMO letter in the mail. What do I do now?

    First off, an application for ROTP is an application to the Regular Force (RegF). Assumedly you mean that you are reapplying to the RegF under a different entry plan. To get a copy of the letter, contact your closest recruiting centre and ask for a copy of the letter, or for a new one to be...

    recurting update needed

    ready to serve, it sounds like your CFAT score, which is given significant weight in the selection process, may not be particularly competitive. Ideally, you don't just want to be on the Competition List but at the top of it. I recommend to study and request to write it a second time. You've...

    CT -- Reserves into ROTP/RMC (merged)

    MisterBig, the para on "reduction or reversion" in rank does not apply in your case. Transferring from Cpl to OCdt is considered a promotion, not a reversion in rank, regardless of the lower pay levels for OCdt (ROTP). The other para seems pretty clear, you will be paid at a rate that is...

    Component Transfer with time out but no credit for previous rank pay scale

    Do you mean a former member that is not, or is no longer, on the supplemental reserve list? It is not a Component Transfer (CT) if one is not a member of the Canadian Forces. https://www.canada.ca/en/department-national-defence/corporate/policies-standards.html

    Military bases struggling with personnel shortages, internal review finds

    I am I the only one who read the current Material Management Tech job description and got the impression that they purchase, warehouse, and ship "obsolete stock and equipment"?

    The Post-pandemic Canadian Armed Forces

    I fail to see the importance of CPIC processing WRT reduced hiring of new CAF members during the pandemic.

    Bankruptcy and joining the military

    My CIC Application Odyssey

    Buck_HRA, as you stated the restrictions are both local and national. Local restrictions do not fall neatly within the CFRC AORs, but are by health region and city. Some CFRCs span several provinces, so the rsstrictions can vary significantly by Det.
