Ya, that doesn't tell you how much your actual take home pay is.. I have been told different amount anywhere from $600-$1500. Even my recruiter said he wasn't sure.

Do you know what your deductions will be yet?  If NOT, then we can't tell you what you will have left to take home.

I was in the CAF 2012-13.

Do you have your old pay stubs as a reference?

it said :

Net Pay: (this is per month btw)

Single - $1411.98
Married/CL - $1507.98

so divide those by 2 and that is approx your take home pay on the 15th and last day of the month. The numbers will vary based on current tax rates, etc., but that is pretty close to what I received during basic.

Hey all,

I'm currently in the process of enrollment in the Canadian Forces and I was wondering what I can expect for pay when entering for basic training.  And what my rank will be on completion of basic training. I have a wife and kids so making 30,000 - the 500 odd a month while there won't really cut it. Thanks for any info!

During basic, you are paid peenuts. You dont get much in training and you stay as pte for up to three yrs. After all your training, you start getting full pay.
