Maybe, just maybe, they can lowball your PERs so you don't get promoted out of a job...if they like you.

There are Operators in the Regiment who have been there since the first few SOBQ(now called SFC) courses.  So no, after 3 years you won't be posted out. How ever, I would imagine the standards expected of its members would be high.  You probably wouldn't last long in the unit if you fail a drug test, or are arrested for DUI, etc.


There is no officer SF Op trade, so it may be more difficult for them to make a career within the regiment due to career progression and career managers. However, just because they get posted out doesn't mean they can't return.

No SF Op trade for officers; however, CANSOF officers now have their own career manager so progression is not a problem.

There are increasing considerations for ERE employment of personnel, even in trades deemed specialist, to avoid burn-out and to provide a better rounder career trajectory for those with potential for senior or key appointments.

Of course, postings outside the SOF community do not include the SOF allowances, so some pers are not interested.

Moreover, if you're an Operator but are posted out of the unit you will lose your Operator pay.

If you are an officer and make it through selection and SFC you would be employed as an Officer/Operator(Platoon Commander, etc) but your MOSID would not change.
