    Alright gentlemen, the response. [list type=decimal] Agreed. I am overthinking; in the regard of considering take home pay in a situation where calculation net pay varies to a high degree and is unpredictable to calculate, given the virtue of the occupation. This research would have been quick...

    Nice, no worries. Thank you for replying anyway, appreciate the answer. Never knew about Managed Readiness Plan, and with that info, I came across this, http://news.gc.ca/web/article-en.do?nid=1031689...and this http://news.gc.ca/web/article-en.do?nid=1046029&tp=1. Cool. Right on. Yes, I was...

    Cool. I read somewhere that the battalions had rotation, I believe the first being PPCLI 1st Bn. Could you bring light on how the rotation would be chosen in our next large scale infantry deployment? PM me if it's an OPS-SEC thing, for that's the battalion/regiment I'd choose. Regarding the...

    This make this threads life easy. Since we're talking from a national annual salary, universal/national is good here. $538.72 was the "full rate" Ration cost at St.Jean during BMQ. The daily rate works out to $17.96, which is a bargain considering: [list type=decimal] No need to...

    Never would have thought this. Is this because of the amount of training to be effective as an infanteer in a section requires five years of training? Ya. General idea of what people said in the links Mario provided. Their was one great post on the unpredictability of how postings to tours...

    Hey everyone, I'm curious, as an NCM INF PRIVATE, what are the chances of going on tour overseas during the first VIE? If the answer is, "hell yes you're going!", what's it like? BACKGROUND: I've applied infantry, and really want in.

    Good point. My logic (albeit out-of-loop and quasi awake state of mind) was as follows: [list type=decimal] forces.ca (http://www.forces.ca/en/job/pdf/infantrysoldier-4) markets a fully trained soldier to rake in $49,000. We know this to be the third year of service/pay increment, with a little...

    Hmm...interesting, I was just reading up on it. (source http://www.forces.gc.ca/en/training-prof-dev/non-commissioned-members.page). If true, BMQ-Land is amalgamated into the 17 week BOQT, right? If if true, DP1 for INF is ~seven months then. BMQ = 12 weeks = Three (3) Months BOQT = 17 Weeks =...

    Yea, this is what's it's coming to. Whatever the pay will be, it'll be better than minimum wage. I think I'll join you on that!

    Yes, though Ontario does hold an above-average tax rate and cost of living which would represent the high side of my expenditure. I don't have anything I need moved. I don't own anything of significant size or value. Noted. I wasn't interested in Class B. Yup, the tax bracket eat up is...

    Right on. Regarding the allowances to qualify for loans, then falling short on absence of said allowance, though still liable for payments based on allowance income, this brings importance to very important financial mindfulness. Such does in the same respect in this example: [list...
