    Being searched/patted-down every time I enter the recruiting office

    I'd also like to direct folks to the current Force Protection threat assessment... Here in Halifax, our current FP level is MEDIUM, which means "Hey, there's a GENERAL threat of something happening, but nothing SPECIFIC." Now, that said, I was at sea when the attacks happened in St...

    Weapons Engineering Technician

    Quick update to the W Eng trade: We recently changed the EQ 1 and EQ 2 training packages that you complete onboard. Now each package has a time span of 6-12 months, and you get your sub-occupation (Comms, Sonar, Radar, etc.) between packages. The equipment list on the new EQ 2 package mirrors...

    BMQ Location 2023

    Unless something has changed, BMQ courses are all being sent to St. Jean. I know we had a Decentralized BMQ (D-BMQ) here in Halifax for a bit during the pandemic, but I haven't seen a course roll through in some time, and have been told by countless people that we aren't running them on the...

    CFAT #2

    Since it's been a minute, I'm hoping that your rewrite went ok. Now, if I can speak a little to your "bruh" moment, here's some things to keep in mind about the cook trade: Cooks are considered a "purple" trade, so they can literally go anywhere, whether they are Army, Navy, or Air Force...

    CFAT Problem solving

    I found for my test (ages ago, BTW) I worked on sudoku puzzles to practice my logic and troubleshooting skills, and would try to time myself to solving the puzzles in a set amount of time. For me, I found that beginner puzzles could be done in 2-3 minutes, medium-level puzzles took about 5-10...

    RMC Culture, etc

    PAT section has entered the chat Seriously, though... My mantra has always been "Hope for the best, but plan for the worst." I would make sure you look into EVERYTHING first, before you jump. Better to know what you're gonna land on.

    Definitely will be missed. I always values Kat's opinion, and enjoyed that sense of humour. He will be missed. 😢

    Allowances - Post Living Differential (PLD) [MERGED]

    In all seriousness, the CFHD will benefit those who sorely need it. The ones (like me) who got used to having PLD and now don't qualify, well it does suck to be us, but the ones I feel for are those JR members who live in PMQs and won't qualify for the CFHD. I'll use the Windsor Park Apartment...

    Allowances - Post Living Differential (PLD) [MERGED]

    Not making fun; I'd always take the deployment benefits. Makes the CoL a little easier when they get the extra $$$ and don't have to feed me daily. I'm one of those "weird" ones who like to get to the ship early, if only to have a coffee and ease into my day. But I won't pretend that being...

    Sending letters

    Please, PLEASE, ensure you read the "Prohibited Items" section of what can be sent in the mail at CFLRS. From the perspective of a former student, there is the possibility that some of the staff may have the member open any packages in front of the platoon, to ensure any contraband is...

    PSAC Strike over (Pay Implications?)

    PSAC Strike over (Pay Implications?)

    Honestly, I feel like it's likely the latter. If I see anything more than what was already announced on my mid-July pay stub, I'll consider that icing on the cake. But part of me wants to believe that our pay increase got announced BEFORE the strike mandate took effect so they could use it as...

    Sudan 2023 Thread- Discussion on Our Evacuation Capabilities

    MV ASTERIX has a hospital wing onboard, complete with X-Ray, Trauma Surgery, and a Ward that can house 5-7 patients at a time. So, in the event of a medical emergency, there’s a place they can go.

    Allowances - Post Living Differential (PLD) [MERGED]

    I've always said there are no stupid questions, only stupid people, so let me be a stupid person here for a second: Are PMQs also ineligible for this benefit? I've read both the CANFORGEN and the CBI ref and while neither seems to state specifically (unless I'm blind and/or skimming past it)...
