REFS: A. CBI 210.72  http://hr3.ottawa-hull.mil.ca/dgcb/cbi/engraph/cbi_chapter-210_e.asp?sidesection=6&section=3
B: CBI 205.73 http://hr3.ottawa-hull.mil.ca/dgcb/cbi/engraph/cbi_chapter-205_e.asp?sidesection=6&section=5

THIS CANFORGEN ADVISES OF AMENDMENTS TO REFS A AND B, COMPENSATION FOR DISABILITY AND DEATH GRATUITY INSTRUCTIONS FOR RESERVISTS, EFFECTIVE 5 JUNE 08. THE AMENDMENTS WERE MADE TO ALIGN THESE POLICIES WITH THE CF RETURN TO WORK (RTW) PROGRAM.

THE TITLE OF REF A IS NOW QUOTE RESERVE FORCE - COMPENSATION DURING A PERIOD OF INJURY, DISEASE OR ILLNESS UNQUOTE, TO EMPHASIZE THAT RESERVISTS RECEIVE COMPENSATION WHEN THEY HAVE SUFFERED AN INJURY, DISEASE OR ILLNESS ATTRIBUTABLE TO MILITARY SERVICE.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, A RESERVIST WHO SUFFERS AN INJURY, DISEASE, OR ILLNESS AS A RESULT OF PARTICIPATING IN APPROVED PHYSICAL FITNESS TRAINING ACTIVITIES WHILE NOT IN RECEIPT OF PAY IS NOW DEEMED TO BE ON CLASS A RESERVE SERVICE FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF ELIGIBILITY TO DISABILITY COMPENSATION UNDER REF A.

ADDITIONALLY, REF A HAS BEEN AMENDED TO ALLOW FOR THE ISSUANCE OF AN IMMEDIATE DISABILITY COMPENSATION ADVANCE DURING A PERIOD OF INJURY, DISEASE OR ILLNESS, IN AN EFFORT TO AVOID FINANCIAL HARDSHIP. LIKEWISE, REF B HAS BEEN AMENDED SO THAT A ONE-TIME PAYMENT OF THE DEATH GRATUITY BENEFIT IS AUTHORIZED INSTEAD OF THE PREVIOUS PRACTICE OF PAYING THE ANNUITY IN INCREMENTS OVER SEVERAL MONTHS.

FINALLY, WHERE AN OFFICER OR NON-COMMISSIONED MEMBER TO WHOM REF A APPLIES IS SERVING ON A PERIOD OF CLASS C SERVICE IN A SPECIAL DUTY AREA (SDA) / SPECIAL DUTY OPERATION (SDO) AND SUFFERS AN INJURY, DISEASE OR ILLNESS WHILE ON THAT SERVICE, REF A NOW PROVIDES FOR EXTENSION OF CLASS C SERVICE FOR UP TO 24 ADDITIONAL MONTHS FROM THE DATE OF THE INJURY, ETC.

Not so hard to do, and I have sucessfully done this myself.. 

Ensure that your physical activities are listed and checked off on your DND 279 form.  If the activites are not included in the DND 279 checkboxes (like mountain biking) submit a memo to your chain of command requesting permission to engage in "non-standard" physical fitness activities.  List those activities (type, duration, frequency) and attach proof that you meet any training/licensing requirements for the listed activities.

Once blessed by the C of C, ensure you get a copy placed on your pers file.  Voila!  You are now "approved"!!!
