Thank you very much Pusser.Pusser said:The CAF will move your household furniture and effects (F&E). That would be all the stuff you have in your house (subject to some restrictions on weight and hazardous materials). No one will be examining your F&E to determine who actually owns it. Having said that, below is the definition of dependant in the Relocation Directive. It's worth noting that there is no reference to how closely someone is related to the CAF member (i.e. a distant cousin could qualify). There is also a provision for someone who may not be a relative, but can still be considered a dependant.
(1) This definition applies to all chapters in the CFIRP. For the purpose of an IPR move (Chapter 14), the context here requires that "CF member" includes an eligible person who is not an estate.
(2) “Dependant” means, in relation to an individual who is a CF member, a person who is related to the individual within the meaning of paragraph (3) and who:
a.physically resides in the individual's residence for more than 240 days during the 365 days immediately before the day on which the individual commences their move;
b.does not meet the residence requirement in subparagraph (a) because: i.they attend full-time a university, college, professional or vocational institution, or similar body;
ii.they married or became the common-law partner of the individual during the 240 days immediately before the day on which the individual commences their move and physically reside in the individual's residence after that day;
iii.they became a child of the individual during the 240 days immediately before the day on which the individual commences their move and physically reside in the individual's residence after that day, or
iv.in the case of the spouse or the common-law partner of the individual, they are or were a member of the Regular Force or the Reserve Force and reside elsewhere for service reasons.
(3) For the purpose of paragraph (2) a person related to an individual who is a CF member if:
a.the person is the individual's common-law partner or spouse;
b.the person is a child of the individual, their spouse or their common-law partner;
c.in the case of a person who is a minor or who is an adult who has been declared incompetent under provincial or territorial law, the individual, their spouse or their common-law partner is the person authorized by law to act on behalf of that person; or
d.the person is a person in respect of whom the individual may claim a tax credit under the Income Tax Act or would be able to claim such a credit except for the fact that the person's income exceed the applicable income limit specified under that Act for that tax credit.
(4) For the purpose of paragraph (2), if an individual who is a CF member has a child who is a minor and is the subject of a custody order or an enforceable custody agreement betweenthe individual and another person, the child is deemed to physically reside in the individual's residence for the greater of:
a.the number of days in a year that the order or agreement specifies the individual's residence to be the child's primary residence; and
b.number of days in a year that the order or agreement specifies that individual has access to but not custody of the child.
Number of Dependants - When a posting message does not include all dependants, CF members must provide their Military Personal Records Resume (MPRR) to the service provider to show the number of dependants.
1. In cases of joint/shared custody, when the dependant is residing with the CF member at the time of the relocation, expenses as outlined in the CF IRP Policy may be reimbursed. As per art 3.4.03 the DAE portion of the posting allowance is payable to CF members whose dependants are relocated at public expense.
2. When posted outside Canada the host country may not recognize those defined as dependants under the CF policy therefore CF members should verify host country regulations and ensure compliance understanding that they are responsible for any subsequent costs associated with continuing to establish residency.
