The gym at NDHQ lists everywhere in Ottawa that you can get anything health related at discounts/free. The Y's in Orleans and Nepean have free membership for DND military employees, sorry to the civilians. Avis is one of the few companies that would rent me a car a while back, and said they could only rent to people 19 and up if they were in the military, otherwise it was 25 and over. Your military ID is still good in the States as well, it gets you in the PX, and onto bases now with the heightened security. You can also play free squash and work out at the Westin hotel in Ottawa, and swim free at the Champagne pool. Once, the government rate was actually higher than the posted rate at a hotel, this is done sometimes because the customer will simply call and demand the gov rate, not even asking what the discount/mark up is.
