    Divining the right role, capabilities, structure, and Regimental System for Canada's Army Reserves

    It was the # 1 reason I quit completely recently as it was the only way to access VAC Education benefits. #2 reason was the CAF itself but I likely could have been persuaded to become a PRes mbr if it was a real option.

    PLQ / AJLC changes again....

    The system now is essentially the same as it was 20+ years ago. What is old is new again. It was fine then and it is fine now. We need to simplify our IT, not make it more cumbersome

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Except that the DAOD has been amplified/clarified under CANFORGEN 134/12 and a CO has approval authority for remedial measures for alcohol misconduct up to C&P. So a CO has to think that the misconduct has reached the Administrative Review (AR) stage before it is sent to DMCA 2, anything less...

    Compulsory Occupational Transfer [COT] questions

    The messages are usually pretty fast for CMOT/COT but everything is a bit slower in pandemic world. Your new occupation CM really has nothing to do with you until you are trained. They are aware that you exist in the system in that trade but almost every untrained member is managed by a...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    So no one can ever reference things that are under investigation? They are after all trying to figure out why the CAF continues to fail at providing a safe environment for all employees. They do have to delve into areas and systemics faults that that have caused the issues.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Did you read the article? She and the others didn't discuss their specific cases rather their loss of agency in the process and in some cases their fears over a culture that shields perpetrators and is not conducive to supporting folks in coming forward. From the article: The committee steered...

    It takes time to punch out all the messages, so I wouldn't assume that at all. Have seen them flow into a unit's/base's +acct over a few weeks when it comes to first round of offers

    Land Duty Allowance interpretation question

    I did not catch this in my original answer, your BOR should be clarifying with the school as it is their money after all that is paying the claim. They should have done it in the first place even if it was your unit but some places let ORs run/interpret admin usually to their detriment. It is...

    Land Duty Allowance interpretation question

    Like Dapaterson have seen vary degree of interpretation, including people receiving LDA attempt the reverse to get TD while living in Mod tents (unsuccessfully) I am aware of some clarifications from DCBA on the matter, but would be lying if I said I can recall what exactly they were, IIRC...

    Dress During Final Release Appt

    Leaning on the collective braintrust of Army.ca for thoughts on dress for members on final release appt. Been doing some searching around the CAF and it seems that every base/release section has a different way of approaching the issue. It seems some have a fairly strict "thou shall wear DEU 3"...

    Health dollars are given to provinces and don't have the purview to set up logistical links and ability across provinces to deliver an effect. With those dollars. The CAF has that mandate ave more importantly in my opinion people with the ability to plan it I think merely pointing to dollars...

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    Some of the highlights have been touched on by others but we are generally good at logistics which is getting stuff where it is needed when it needs to be there. Some of that is in our structures that have redundancies at each level to catch issues but also make things happen when it needs to...
