Not really, but according to the website they're in need of Cooks (seemingly more than anything else). My uncle and his wife are cooks on one of the bases in Alberta so I'll ask them some questions about it to see if it piques my interest. I'm really interested in cooking, but same with weapons and the medical field. I've always had a problem with narrowing down my interests.
Thank you for getting back to me so fast!
I have birth defects that I thought for a long time disqualified me from ever joining the military, simple as that because while they're no harm to anyone else or myself in normal circumstances, I can't be involved in any contact sports and combat obviously goes way beyond a contact sport like football.
But their site says:
"You will not be disqualified based on a diagnosis or disease." And also says it will just narrow the career options available to you.
I assumed a part time position in any of those three (I'm amazed they had part time positions) means I would be staying in Canada somewhere, and not leaving to another country that is immersed in combat. But if I either joined full time, or a war against Canada/Canada against another country, would I be made to deploy anyways? If I am a tech or cook part time or full time, would I still be deployed with my birth defects? I don't want to sound cowardly, but I don't think I could leave Canada to be in combat just because of my birth defects.
Someone said with the defects I wouldn't be 'qualified for combat.' So with the defects I'm still (so says the website) able to get a job, but would my defects disqualify me from ever being in combat?
I'm sorry if that was incoherent and/or repetitive, I'm in a rush.
