If you cannot/will not deploy, you shouldn't be in uniform, unless we're leveraging that individuals previous CAF experience to help train others for a time until a comfortable transition to civilian life.
You also have to be careful with tying an individual as not deployable simply because they're in a non-line unit but fully capable and willing to go.

In the end, you still spend more money by doing this. Money isn't suddenly produced out of thin air because you make a position civilian.
Many staff positions, most training positons do not require deployments. The CAF has to take into account thr investment in people before they make a decision wrt medical release especially when that person can still effectively do the work.
For example, a fighter pilot costs north of a millions dollars to train to a basic level and several millions up to an advanced level. Test pilots, none of whom are expected to deploy, have to go through a $1.5M course after they gained experience that is, in itself, worth millions.
All the experience an knowledge is lost after they are released.
