I have just tried it on a Nissan 2015 Frontier Crew Cab. It was worth about $1250 off of MSRP on a $36000 purchase with 0% financing. I would have got $3750 additional off if I paid cash.
A little better than being a Costco member with Ford.
I did not use the offer.

This must be the fastest someone has been released from 39 CBG. Never have I seen it done in less than 4 months before.
The BC Government did this a few years ago. Everyone thought the sky was falling. They did take 1 year for the adjustment, they also allowed vacation, CTO, and archived vacation to be used to pay for this.
Our difference is that we only had to do a week.
Became a nothing event.
In the BC Provincal Government we started down the Road of Shared Services 8 years ago.
On the IT side we have outsourced PC Support Server Support and are just about to outsource network support. Each one to a different vendor.
The government does not want to be in the IT Business.
I can bet...
I think one of the big issues with the reserves is that they are considered discretionary budget. Which means it is one of a few budgets that DND can cut. IE DND has been told to reduce budget by 5%, but it is not laying off Soldiers/sailors or airmen. Thereby other budgets have to make up for...
Finally got my pension buyback sorted out.
Always check what they send you as I did find discrepancies. RPSR is also not perfect.
It will cost me $18K and change for 22.4 years of Class "A" Service.
My Interest from August 2007 till now was $7192. My payment at $5 per month was $310...
I just got my pension information in.
To buyback 1411.50 days. This will cost me $18,496.92. My Estimated Value that I had for this was $12,800.00. Compounded interest is a bitch!
I joined in Oct 1984I was Class "A" for all the buyback time except for some Class "B" Courses.
I have 3...

The best I can say is get the CoC involved. There are more programs than you expect plus you can get discomp pay as well. Both take a lot of work usually by the Adjt, but well worth the effort. Things in the CF tend to work better if you have your CoC support then if you try it on your own...
I was in Dieppe 3 weeks ago and the town had lots of information on Operation Jubliee. They had kiosks setup where each unit came ashore with a story about each unit. Had a lot of canadian flags flying. It was very nice to see.
But when you are on the beaches lookinng at the town and you see...
I don't know who is telling you that the Canadian Scottish Reiment isn't recruiting. I know for a fact that we are still recruiting, in all 3 locations on Vancouver Island.
PM - If you want more information. I can also get you to talk to the right people.
My recommendation would be that a Class "B" start on a Friday if the report date is a Monday, normally it would be Saturday would be the travel day anyway. Then you have the ability to travel 1500 km when you include the weekend, before you have to travel on your own dime as a reservist...
For us reservists, I guess it may be a good thing that the pension office has taken so long to not even calculate our buyback part of our pensions. Now I can get my RFRG put it into and RRSP and then use it to buyback my pension!!
This almost seems that it was planned!!
Also PLQ has changed even more than that.
You will do a two week DL First, either as 5 weekends or as a two week course. This can be done from your home or at your unit.
The you normally will do a two residency at the location where you will be doing your mod 6 just before the mod 6.
