Can you live at the base for free or do they charge you ?

Are you staying on base in single quarters or in RHUs? Are you fully trained or still in the training system in this scenario?

I'm wondering if I can join the military after having had a psychotic event and been on anti-psychotics for a number of years?  I would like to become a pilot.

As mariomike wrote, RHUs are residential housing units, basically houses available to military members.
They are not free. The rent fees are comparable to the local area. Utilities and food are extra.

Shacks (single quarters) are rooms that may be shared or not. No overnight guests and no cooking facilities for the most part. Rations (meals) are $500-700/month depending on the base.

While in training, the cost is lower overall I believe as you have no choice but to stay in shacks.

There are many different possible scenarios, depending on the circumstances, some of which will involve either free food and accommodation (or reimbursement for it), but for the most part, no one lives for free at home.  If you're not deployed on operations, at sea in a ship, in the field on exercise or otherwise away from home, you are most likely paying for food and a place to sleep, one way or another - just like most every other adult in Canada.
