To start the process, you have to inform your chain of command who will inform the orderly room and deal with the paperwork. Once the...

    I have dual citizenship (ROC) and on the level 2 security clearance application there's an area for holders of dual citizenship where you have to explain why you want to retain your second citizenship. I was able to get my clearance without problems.

    Reserve Questions

    A good majority of the guys from my reserves unit (39 Service) are university students. It really comes down to how much of a commitment you want to put in.

    Canadian Forces Aptitude Test (CFAT) [MERGED]

    The owner of that website seems to be confused about how the CF works. There are many references to the regular force being the army, the navy and the air force not being part of the regular force, and the reserves not being part of the military at all. I'd be highly skeptical of the study...

    Reservists Job Protection Superthread

    CPGear Tac-Vest Hydration Harness

    How well does this piece of kit work with the 82 ruck and the smallpack? This would be a nice-to-have for a ruck march but will the rucksack crush the hydration pouch?

    Looking at DEO LOG,

    I've heard from many recruiters and guys that have re-joined that previous service will most likely bog you down as they have to draw service records from Ottawa, which is an extra step.

    Joining Reserves while working up north

    You need to parade at least every three weeks during Sept to May to not go NES (non effective strength, aka getting booted out) so working full time elsewhere during the year is not viable. There is the ED & T option which allows you to get permission to take a longer amount of time off...
