    Access paystatements

    If you are on the DWAN you can get access to your pay stubs through EMAA. If you do not have DWAN access you need to request your pay information is sent by email to you. I will see if I can find a soft copy of the EMAA waiver Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Harrasment in public..Hydro One fires "jerk" for reporter prank

    He is actually not a licensed engineer - it seems that a reporter found his actual job title too long and shortened it to "engineer" for reasons of brevity. As regards the PEO, the complaints process covers professional competence  and conduct/behaviour. Harassing reporters would likely fall...

    ROTP at Civilian University 2004 - 2018 [Merged]

    If you are on ROTP you are an Officer Cadet in the CAF which would preclude you from also being an NCM in the Reserves. Also, on ROTP you would be expected to undertake your BMIQ and other Occupational Training during the summer break periods which would mean no Reserve EXs.

    Domestic Terrorism/Public Attacks on CAF Personnel

    Agreed - I was generalising and may well be incorrect. However the indigenous religion within Canada is not known for preaching extreme violence - the ideas are being imported from somewhere by someone.

    Domestic Terrorism/Public Attacks on CAF Personnel

    A disengaged electorate allowing a government free rein is the real cause, and I agree with you on this; accusing the electorate of being wrapped up in individual pleasures as the reason behind this disengagement is subjective - perhaps the partisan nature of politics is why the electorate is...

    Domestic Terrorism/Public Attacks on CAF Personnel

    I disagree - we are not in this mess because of individual pleasures, we're in this mess because we as a society have neglected to ensure that people we're letting into the country share the same as those already living here.  Like the UK, once an extremist is here, his/her human rights are...

    Domestic Terrorism/Public Attacks on CAF Personnel

    I can't speak for the UK in recent years (since 2006 basically) but for many years, the threat from Irish terrorism drove us into civvies when off-base. For transit between home and unit we were permitted to wear a civvy jacket over our uniform and  were advised to vary our route. In terms of...

    The WTF News Files

    I've never seen any recipe, British or otherwise, call for wet-wipes... our penchant for lard in cooking came first so the problem is solely down to the use of wet-wipes!  ;)

    ROTP at Civilian University 2004 - 2018 [Merged]

    Like vaprisk my son too is at St-Jean; when we've spoken to him he's sounded upbeat and doesn't regret his choice at all. Even being thrown in the deep end on day 1 as course senior didn't faze him, he seems to be adopting an "adapt and overcome" attitude and sounds ever more confident each time...

    Regular Officer Training Plan (ROTP)-RMC 2000 - 2018 [Merged]

    If you want to practice engineering, then you need an engineering degree.... if you want to practice medicine, you need a medical degree. While it may be acceptable to the CAF for someone with degree X to be employed in a different field, I'm asking myself why would you study one degree and then...

    Regular Officer Training Plan (ROTP)-RMC 2000 - 2018 [Merged]

    But only if you don't mind not being able to call yourself a professional engineer until your non-engineering degree has been accepted by a Provinical Engineering Association as being adequate (or you take additional exams to fill in the gaps). If you want to be a Professional Engineer in the...

    So it seems it's not too late.... what engineering roles are recruiting direct entry PEngs at the moment and roughly how long would the recruitment process take?

    Colonel and woman Lt Colonel suspended after embarrassing 'affair' exposed by he

    It's the "Daily Wail", a tabloid newspaper well-known for sensationalism - in the eyes of normal, objective people it has nothing at all to do with things..... in reality, the fact that a man and a woman were caught "playing away from home" isn't really news to many, however to journalists it...

    Direct Entry for experienced engineers.....

    New and exciting sounds good; I know at 51, I'm not going to be the next CDS :) I'm just looking for some rewarding fulfilling work in an environment where we're all working together to achieve the same objective, not the poisonous office-politics ridden environment of nearly every civilian...

    Flag Quebec - free pratique

    Since Flag Quebec is part of the International Code of Signals it may well be an International Convention that governs the use of this signal rather than national laws.  A quick review of my copy identifies a range of pratique messages in Section 9, with a reference in the heading to...

    Direct Entry for experienced engineers.....

    .. OK for "experienced" read, "OLD" (early 50s)! I'm disillusioned with civilian engineering and am idly wondering whether I've left it too late for the military. The short version of my resume is: PEng in Ontario, fields of practice are electrical and software.  BSc in Electronic & Computer...

    Leaving Cadets?

    I'll echo the sentiments of others here - stay in!  This time last year, my family moved from Petawawa to Kingston - my son was employed as Staff at Blackdown over the summer and was intending joining the Reserves in September when he came home from camp rather than transferring to a new...
