    Imposed restriction and 30 days notice

    Check with your IRP rep.  I believe there is a lease breaking benefit under the CFIRP though I am not sure if it applies to your situation....

    All Memo Templates: (AVOTP, ED&T, File Number, OJT, OT, Release, Retention)

    George, In my personal experience there was no discernible difference in work ethic or camaraderie between experienced pers in the Air Force that came in off the street or that OT'd from the combat arms.  I suspect that the accounts you were recounted were based on OT pers coming into contact...

    All Memo Templates: (AVOTP, ED&T, File Number, OJT, OT, Release, Retention)

    +1 Especially when your people are capable of leaving the service and making as much, or in many cases more than they are making now.  Every unit I ever worked in we compensated our people for working overtime.  While working an extra hour here or there would not give you a day off, working a...

    Bemoaning The Lack of Sports in The CF? [merged thread]

    Couldn't agree with you more.  I worked in a unit last year where we limited pers to one base/intermural team per sports season/ 2 per year due to significant pers reductions the unit experienced.  There was a distinct and very vocal minority who complained.  Talking to some of them I was taken...

    Communicator Research

    I would classify detection and DF as surveillance and reconnaissance.  The Int Branch tried to take over the 291 trade with a brain child called "Defence Intelligence Career Fields" or word to that effect back in 2007/2008 and failed after resistance from the C&E Branch,

    Tactical EW a d SIGINT are definitely not the same thing.  Tactical EW is an ACT function while SIGINT is a SENSE function.  Tactical EX involves things like ECM (jamming) and ECCM (counters to jamming) which are definitely not intelligence functions. I know that some in the Int Branch consider...

    Communicator Research

    Sigs and CELE (Air) are the main officer trades associated with the Comms Rsrch trade. dapaterson, Having worked in the community, I do not agree that 291ers more naturally belong to the Int branch.  Only a small portion of them do analytic work normally associated with the Int branch, the...

    PERs : All issues questions...2003-2019

    Theoretically this is not supposed to happen, as per CFAO 11-6 Para 10: 10. The military requirement, referred to in subparagraph 4f(2), is the number of officers required at each rank level, in each MOC, to fill the Canadian Forces (CF) establishment. The military requirement also dictates that...

    PERs : All issues questions...2003-2019

    Puck Chaser, sound like we need to address a PER inflation problem and not the overhaul the system...  On the RCAF side, on the Wings at least, an unofficial quota system exists where you need the permission of the W Comd to give an individual not ranked in Section 5 an immediate PER.  While...

    PERs : All issues questions...2003-2019

    The only major heartache i have with the changes that are being discussed is not filling out the potential section for non-Immediate PERs.  In my occupations (CELE) Capt - Maj promotions, and in the ATIS Tech trade promotions anywhere up to MWO, regularly happen with a mix of high Ready and...

    Occupational and Component Transfers (OT/CT/VOT) During and After BMQ (Merged)

    Not during BMOQ.  CFLRS is not likely to expend its staff horsepower to staff a VOT for someone on BMOQ. Voluntary occupational transfers, most of the time, are done through a merit based process where merit listing happens once a year.  Voluntary occupational transfers while still in the...

    Compassionate Status

    I do not see a strong case for a compassionate posting based just on the information you provided as the logical question would be "where is the resolution within the period of a typical posting." As per DAOD 5003-6 : DGMC, DSA and D Mil C (Authorities for granting compassionate statue) shall...

    DND IT takes a great leap forward

    DND USB sticks are not supposed to be used on non-DND machines.  Any time that a DND USB stick was used on a non-DWAN computer it needs to be scrubbed.  For PERs we loaned out standalone laptops for pers that didn't have a DVPNI laptop issued.  Failing that, the advice was to used e-mail to send...

    DND IT takes a great leap forward

    We are almost never at the latest version of any software....  But we still need to be on call it the "next-to-latest" version because of vendor support, manly fixes and patches for known security issues problems.  Up to date patching addresses probably 70+ of the known IT security threats out...

    IR - Type of Living Quarters Provided?

    If he was authorized to live out on the economy he would get the full rate for that geographic area as per the CBI.  Commercial accommodations are only supposed to be used if appropriate government accommodations are full. DAA is spot on saying that every base has a different standard as the...
