    Canadian Federal Budget 2014 (11 Feb 2014)

    Agreed. Imagine the folks in Cold Lake, maybe expecting to get out of there this APS for a better place, with the prospect of "you're staying another year"...

    Are personal circumstances taken in to consideration when being assigned a base?

    Although everything is possible, you have to realize that you start on the wrong foot by trying to get in and hope to go where you want. Nobody at the recruiting center will be impressed if you start mentioning I wish to stay close to home ...if you get in, you go to basic training, then trade...

    Memo to seek autorization for PT outside the system

    Well, It's not for me, as I do PT with the unit. Just trying to help somebody, but trying to get the reference first. I just remember reading a paragraph (requires CO's approval) in former unit orders about it. Haggis, you're basically saying exactly what was stated in the orders I remember...

    Memo to seek autorization for PT outside the system

    Hi, I remember reading some unit orders that specified that if the member wanted to do PT outside the base (there was a list of approved activities) and make it count for unit PT (and be covered in case of injury), the member had to submit a memo to the CoC, in order to get it approved. Now...

    How to get rid of old DEU items properly?

    Hi, Question here for our residents Supply experts! Doing some cleanup at my place right now. I have quite a bit of old DEU dress shirts/pants that I don't wear anymore (original sizing from basic training days). I ordered several new pieces of DEU gear on Logistik Unikorps throughout the...

    CANFORGEN on Pay and PIL

    Georges, What I get from this email/link you got is that the Public Service got their payments somewhat quickly and flawlessly on average. Do we know how long they waited after they submitted their paperwork until they got their payments? It would be nice to get an update on the MIL side of...

    Nursing officer initial posting

    Babycake, Keep in mind that on almost every military bases there is either a "base hospital" or a dedicated medical section. If not, or after hours, there is an deal with some local hospital to provide support. So if you don't mind going places, you'll be served. Start googling to look at...

    Nursing officer initial posting

    Well, I'm not part of the medical corps, but basically, you have no input on where you'll actually be posted after basic training. A lot of new members are expecting (I call that wishful thinking) that they'll be posted close to home/family. It's certainly not the case. You'll most likely go...

    Promotions in the CAF [Merged]

    Yes, without the rank and pay for now. Like many others actually. At least you have the opportunity to grow with the added responsibilities and "exposure". Wait for the boards results this fall (your ranking on EMAA after the boards), and base your decision on that maybe?

    Future of the OPME program/Everything you ever wanted to know about OPME

    I just put in for HIE208 Military history today. I also emailed the PLAR section from RMC, trying to figure if they would PLAR a part of HIE208 military history with the distance learning portion of the ILP I did in 2011. Their answer was that because of the cessation (it's their term) of the...

    Promotions in the CAF [Merged]

    [/SIZE] True. But at the same time, if the OP is a "one man gang", and manages to fulfill 100% of his occupation's mandate (OP knows if he is actually doing it or not) for his Garrison/Base/Wing/Det, and if the OP has to answer all the questions, meet all the requirements and manage to get the...

    Promotions in the CAF [Merged]

    Like Gny says, it's a common situation, but at the same time it's a good occasion for your to show your CoC what you're made of..that should pay off. If you're doing real good you should rank pretty good on the list. but I wouldn't go and "ask" to be accelerated. You should enter your EPZ soon...

    A new Avro Arrow (or Super Arrow) instead of the F-35 (Merged thread)

    Another point against the RAFALE, is that it hasn't been sold to other countries...doesn't seem to be a popular plane in the fighter jet world, for whatever reasons. They just recently proved their worth in Libya.... I assume buyers prefer either next gen or battle proven aircrafts..

    Comm Research

    All in all, it doesn't matter if you chose whatever element. If they'll make you an offer for a particular trade and you accept it, well, you'll get the dress that comes with it. In some trades (purple mostly), there is a ratio of people to be assigned to the different elements...

    DND Accommodations in Montreal?

    I haven't stayed on base in Longue-pointe. But I know they just definitely closed the kitchen on august 31st 2012! Of course there is still a little cafeteria at Base HQ, plenty of restaurants in Mtl and a Timmies really close to the base, but just to let the OP know... You can read the article...
