Just wondering if anyone can tell me what the operational tempo of 1 RCHA is compared to 2 RCHA? How do they differ? For next APS (2014) will there be a change in the high readiness of 2 RCHA? How is each regiment in regards to being able to care for children, spend enough quality time with children?

You do realize this unit is not a daycare?

The quick answer is, there is no difference.  They are both operational regiments with very similar missions/tasks, the same as 5 RALC in Valcartier.  All the brigades go through a cycle of readiness, so no one unit is always at a heightened readiness. 

Some may say that 2 RCHA is more cutting edge because of their greater exposure to advanced training, but all regiments do the same training; a lot of times it will come down to the ambition of the CO or the higher Comd .

As far as children go, that is a very personal experience.  You will get people that will tell you 1 RCHA is better and you will get people that tell you 2 RCHA.  Some will say they are both good.

All this is dependant on the bigger scope.  For the years between 2001 - Pres, both units have been very busy, with no real decisive difference, other than personal opinion.

2 CMBG, and thus 2 RCHA, is next up for high readiness once 1 CMBG and 1 RCHA are done, under the new MRP. 1 Bde will be in reconstitution as of next summer, so there is truth in the belief that PERSTEMPO is different at different times. But it will always even itself out, as GnyHwy says.
