    Pay rates

    Unfortunately, the pay has been frozen since 2013. There may be retroactive increases, but we do not know if or when that will be. The links provided by mariomike will provide further information and discussion.

    CT -- Reserves into ROTP/RMC (merged)

    Good morning, When I CT'd, I returned everything, save for one or two articles. I showed up to Kingston for the 2 week Recruit Camp "course" with pretty much just my combat boots. The positive was that I was issued most of the things that I needed, but the negative was that they gave me very...

    "Re-Royalization", "Re-Britification" and the Heritage Transformation

    Despite the fact that this is unclassified, I am hesitant to leak information, though very readily available on the DIN, and echoing prior rumour on this board. I'll PM you directly, Jim.

    "Re-Royalization", "Re-Britification" and the Heritage Transformation

    The latest National Defence Clothing and Dress Committee meeting minutes have been posted. I'll draw everyone's attention to Item 11, though I won't post the contents of it on an open forum as I haven't seen a press release. http://cmp-cpm.forces.mil.ca/dhh-dhp/pub/cfp-pfc/doc/NDCDC_2014_05_12.pdf

    Fitness for Operational Requirements of CAF Employment ( FORCE )

    IIRC, it was for a potential increased level, not a base pass. It was also mentioned that the times would very likely be tightened after the first year and the opportunity to evaluate results, taking into account gender, age, weight, etc. to determine a true minimum standard.

    CT -- Reserves into ROTP/RMC (merged)

    If you look up CBI 204.211 on Google, it will explain the precise regulations. Suffice it to say that because you are a ResF Corporal, you will be paid as a RegF Corporal once you are transferred to ROTP as an OCdt/NCdt. Your IPC is dependant on how long you have been in rank, calculated by some...

    What can be mailed to a recruit/cadets at CFLRS?

    The restrictions on what trainees have at CFLRS vary depending on the stage that they are in in their course.  You may send things, but if they aren't allowed to have them, they will need to be put into lockup until they are allowed to use them.  This would probably include electronics, and most...

    ROTP Pay Questions

    CBI 204.211 (link below) details circumstances.  However, in addition to what the CBI states, I've seen many Privates also keep their pay. As a Corporal, you will be paid at the Cpl RegF pay bracket, with pensionable time in rank counting towards IPC.  You are also eligible to receive all...

    CT -- Reserves into ROTP/RMC (merged)

    The biggest issue there is that your unit does not have a University Liaison Officer, nor the experience with handling textbook claims, etc.  I highly doubt that they would let you, and if they did, it may very well turn into an administrative nightmare.  I would have preferred to be based in...

    CT -- Reserves into ROTP/RMC (merged)

    When I went through mine (2010) I still had to go to the RMC Recruit Camp, and there were a few other ex-reservists who were on it as well for varying reasons.  I would expect that you won't, given your PLQ, but you can never be sure.  If you have a training conflict for a final exam, you should...

    Maritime Warfare Basic Course

    Give it a week and I'm sure it will be. [/sarcasm] Although I am behind you in the stream, I too have never heard of this course before.  What sort of things are taught?
