Commuting and outside Geo
« on: May 24, 2017, 18:00:51 »
Looking for some insight, i was just posted to CFB Gagetown, from CFLRS. Somehow in all of the shuffle my losing clerks placed me with my parents residence and when i met with my new staff it could possibly create small headaches for a few weeks as shack space is nil for single quarters (not elg to share a room due to my current posting as its not a training posting) i did some looking on here and show that i might be entitled to commuting allowance where i am 100 km each way from the base. I don't really want to sign a lease if i have to reneg on it a few weeks later. any insight or suggestions appreciated

Do you mean Commuting Assistance

If so, no.  It is only applicable to a handful of locations where there isn't public transportation available and there isn't a decent sized town nearby.  Think Suffield, Dundurn...those kinds of places, Gagetown isn't one of them.

Apply for a PMQ.  There may be a wait for a month or so, but you'd end up close to base.
Always behave like a duck.   Remain cool and unruffled on the surface but paddle like the dickens underneath.

More information is required. What type of posting is this? Posting (authorized, restricted, etc.) or Attach Posted? Did you live with your parents (is that the location of your F&E?) before CFLRS and returned there?
