Hey all,
Was just wondering if there are any YTEP's from the 82 - 84 classes still kicking around, specifically any 211ers.
Would be interesting to see how many actually survived to retirement age  :)
I joined 83, cornwallis serial 8341, rad op tq3 8405.

Okay that brought back very bad memories that song  :eek:
I am also interested in finding a couple of friends who where YTEP at the same time, Charles McNaughton and TW Wirch.
Both spent time in Petahaha and Lahr.

I was a YTEP but a little later than the years you're looking for.  8645, 10 Platoon.

I joined in 82 as infantry, so not a YTEP, but a lot of my buddies came in a year later as YTEP'S. We use to call 'em chicken mcnuggets - take a case which regiment I belonged to.. ;)

I remember standing on the old line in the shacks on day one. The  Pl WO's in the middle of his rant and say's "Any of you Fu*k'n YTEPS here?" Two of us put up our hands.....it kind of went down hill from there.  :crybaby:

Are you the same Jim Shaw that was in Cold Lake in 84, married Kim Dobey...are you an ex-MSEOp?

I have heard of YTEPs, I joined in 1990 so I am lacking knowledge on this one. Why did infantry NCOs have a hate on for YTEPs?

I have heard of these mysterious YTEP soldiers.

A couple of questions: What was the reason/premise for the YTEP and why did you join as a trade and remuster to another one?

Did you have to go to Cornwallis or depot training upon entry?

Thanks and to the YTEP's who have retired. Congrats

The Youth Training Employment Program (YTEP) was started by UI (now EI).  I forget what the age limits were, but you were enrolled for one year in the CF (Class C), salary paid by UI.  If the CF retained you in the trade you qualified in, they paid UI the money back.  I would suspect that's why many people had to remuster.

I did my Basic at Cornwallis.

Good morning, my YTEP contract was a huge total of 283 days. Come to think of it I have gone full circle started out as a reservist went reg, retired and am now a reservist again.
