    Allowances - Post Living Differential (PLD) [MERGED]

    "PLD is an Allowance and should NOT be factored into housing costs or counted as income..." That is what it should read. Don't budget on PLD as it can be taken away at anytime. Makes it a bit difficult though when you say this is to help with the COL difference but don't count on it.

    Allowances - Post Living Differential (PLD) [MERGED]

    What about their family make up? Maybe that officer making six figures before deductions is supporting a spouse and 5 kids. Maybe someone in the family has special needs which is costing more than the average would. Too many variables to use just income as a factor. If going down that road...

    Majority of Canadians not interested in joining the CAF

    Pension and job security was a factor for me. Most of the new members I talk to only have short term goals - job experience, cheap/free education and work experience so they can move on to the civilian career they really want.

    Allowances - Post Living Differential (PLD) [MERGED]

    I could see it that you would not get PLD upon enrolment if you are posted to the same area you already live in as there wouldn't be a change to your col. IE if you live in Halifax and are posted to Halifax for your first real posting after basic and trade training then no PLD. Not so sure...

    Acting Chief of Military Personnel on Diversity, Inclusion, and Culture Change Short-Term Initiatives

    I belief that the naval C7 is still PWT1 unless a member of the boarding party.

    Allowances - Post Living Differential (PLD) [MERGED]

    Could be interesting to see the final results. The NCR is the current baseline so Ottawa gets nothing but supposedly the new look program replacing PLD will be of benefit to members posted to Ottawa. Guess I will read about in the news as with the way they drag everything out I will be...

    Allowances - Post Living Differential (PLD) [MERGED]

    Some that state losses on home sales don't actually have a loss. Remember one redress I dealt with where the member felt he suffered a loss due to the renovations he had made and the real estate agents "assessed" value that he did not get on the home sale. Redress was rejected as he had...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    some clump the finance, supply and contracting all together as they are close together in doing the same thing aren't they?!?!? I remember when in AP my involvement with supply and contracts was making sure there was a valid contract and all the authorities were in place before paying the...

    Allowances - Post Living Differential (PLD) [MERGED]

    The NCR is zero as it is the baseline for PLD. If they ever get around to updating the PLD there will be changes that people don't like. Toronto and Vancouver would lose a large amount as the NCR is much closer on par with them on COL. Tax differences between the locations is part of the...

    North Park Armoury rehabilitation project in Halifax

    For some the problem is that the military doesn't have all the say in it. I remember the Adjt at 1 Fd (Halifax Armoury at the time) bringing in a part of the building that had fallen while he was walking and having it sent to I think it was Parks Canada or National Heritage that had control...

    Alleged Institutional Racism/solutions in CAF (merged)

    "I would say that its not the media on a witch hunt. The media is reporting what has been told to them." Can't fully agree with this once I read the article and noted the media made sure they had a quote that despite most of the cases as new members painted the picture of it as the military...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    I get that but it does not cover what I was asking. The government and public has pushed for outside agency investigation of matters based on his affair and the military not able to prosecute him as CDS. How having this investigated by an outside agency would help? I think the RCMP or...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Have to admit I am a bit confused on some of this probably due to lack of experience and knowledge outside of the military. I see a lot of calling for an outside group to deal with all sexual investigations with the most quoted reason as the military cannot charge the CDS under our system...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    in the not too distant past by my reckoning Halifax JRs had a woman's night every week that did very well. The local female population seemed to enjoy it.

    PaCE : Performance Appraisal and Competency system

    according to certain members of the monitor mass team it is more secure than PKI. I would have to disagree with them as while an admin for PKI I could not change security settings, I could only setup and issue the card. As LACO for MM I could grant any member listed with the unit full access...

    PaCE : Performance Appraisal and Competency system

    if you file a grievance and the CoC can't produce a signed and dated PDR they are hooped. According to the grievances on the MGERC site not having a PDR is not a basis for changing a PER. You better have more to support your case than that if you try to get it through the CDS. Common term I...

    PMQ

    and the status is......... my 2 cents - when the MPs say call if she does something illegal do it. As of 1 Sep she is no longer invited on DND property so by being there she is doing something illegal. I once had an issue that involved a neighbour calling local enforcement officers. When I...

    All Things CAF and Covid/ Covid Vaccine [merged]

    I think the most logical post I have seen in the thread and explains why we need to push vaccines is the one that mentioned the vulnerable chid unable to receive it and at risk. Passports I do think are funny and read an interesting take on that I can't recall the wording of but boils down to...
