Flight To BMQ
« on: January 02, 2017, 06:06:39 »
Does the Canadian Forces provide you an airfare to Quebec, or do you have to pay for your own ticket?

If you VR from basic you are responsible for your own ticket back.

They don't provide you the ticket itself but it will be covered. If you're unsure make sure to talk to your local recruiting centre. As a previous poster mentioned, if you get a voluntary release you have to pay for your own ticket back. Otherwise, both will be covered in some way.

How do they cover it? Will they give you the funds to buy a ticket? Or will they reimburse you if you show your proof of payment?

They give it right away at the ceremony?  Or do they send you a mail?

You all should be getting a beautiful stack of paperwork to sign/fill out. At that time you will also receive your booking for your flight. Its a piece of paper with flight number, time of flight, etc. Upon arriving in Montreal, a military bus will pick you up. Do not call the driver 'Sir' (lol).
"Airplanes are interesting toys but of no military value."
- Marshal Ferdinand Foch [Professor of Strategy, Ecole Superieure de Guerre] (circa 1911)
He was Supreme Commander of Allied forces, 1918

If you have questions: go to Google, type  "Site:army.ca",  followed by a space any keywords related to what you're looking for.

Does this apply to a Train & Bus Ticket or just for a Plane?

As long as you let them know ahead of your swearing in, which mode of travel you'd prefer, your ticket will be waiting for you at swearing in. Otherwise, they default to plane ticket.

You should talk to your recruiting center, but yes people can drive themselves, however, you will be leaving your car parked in the lot for the first four weeks at minimum. After that you could possibly become the designated driver for your group.
