Hello,

I want to join the Army Reserves for a year or two, before enrolling with a contract to the Navy or Air force.
is it possible to go this route (to first see if I like it) before committing full term?

I recommend trying one of these camps out first. https://www.canada.ca/en/army/services/bold-eagle.html

Were you in cadets at all? That would've given you good experience I'm sure.

Not sure if you joined yet or not, but I joined the Army reserves in Feb 2012, put my transfer request in around October 2012, and was offered a Reg Force job in the RCAF in April 2014. So about 1.5 years total.
