Imposed Restriction (IR) Merged Thread
« on: January 20, 2009, 15:21:17 »
This has probably come up before, but I can't seem to find any info on it.

I'm posted to Kingston APS 2009 and I will be heading there on IR.

Any ideas of what the exact entitlements are?

And does anyone know of any decent places to rent?  I'm probably looking for a motel or something.  I will probably be deploying at some point so I don't want to lock into a year long lease unless the military pays out extra to break the lease.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

     You are entitled to the cost of rent and utilities, not sure of the exact amount for Kingston, you,re clerks will have a list. Your heat, hydro, basic cable, internet and phone will all be covered under your entitlements. If you so wish you can also claim your cellphone, if you are not getting a landline phone, up to about $33-$35 a month. You also get separation allowance and an allowance for meals, but again check with your clerks they can give the most up to date info.

     I had to come to Kingston briefly on IR last summer, now my family is hear, and would not recommend a month to month rent. There are two or three hotels that offer weekly rates, about $450, which exceeds your monthly entitlement for living expenses. The few month to month rent accommodations that are available are in fairly rough shape and not in the best neighbourhoods. From experience I would recommend a year lease as you will find much better accommodations as well as the possibility of bundling your utilities in with your rent which makes the claim process easier. Hope some of that helps.

If your phone, cable and internet is NOT covered in your monthly rent, you CANNOT claim it, it is to be paid out of your separation allowance.  You CAN claim a one-time hook-up fee.  This just changed not too long ago (earlier this year).  I know because I had an ongoing "discussion" via email with my IR clerk.   ;D

Edit to add:  Ensure your career manager is aware that you intend to go IR as it must be requested and noted on your posting message.

Here is the DCBA Aide Memoire.  TR/IR entitlements start on page 26.

Quote
Members on TR shall receive a one-time reimbursement for one basic phone (cellular or land line), basic TV cable, and basic dial up or cable Internet hook ups as applicable. The monthly recurring charges for these services shall be the responsibility of the member as it is being compensated at sub paragraphs 4.1b, 4.2c, 4.3c, and 4.4c above.

The links in the Aide only work from a DWAN computer.

First time poster here.

I'm also planning on going IR to Kingston this summer. I hear the SQ are all full though. Can anyone confirm or deny this for me?

Thanks.

In 2008 there was a memo issued from Kingston stating that personnel posted to Kingston on IR will no longer be allowed to stay in Single Quarters.

Thank you to all for the replies! Unfortunately the link was a dead one but in CFB Kingston BSO 19.00, it states: IMPOSED RESTRICTED PERSONNEL
13.   Members on IR,  that are posted to CFB/ASU Kingston are required to secure non-public accommodation and seek reimbursement. 

Hopefully this will help others seeking the same info.

I am well aware of the rules when a service member decides to move to the new location alone.   What I want to know is this, what happens when one member of a service couple decides to take the F&E to the new location while leaving the other member at the old location.   Would the member who is left behind be entitled to IR benefits?

I have read through the orders and I can't seem to find anything written about the subject anywhere.

I believe it's called a "reverse IR". One of my friends is currently in this situation. However you would be best served by contacting your respective career shops to get the true low-down.
What could possibly go wrong?

Yeah I found the ref which indicates the entitlement.   I am just running into some issues with a certain organization down in CFB Esquimalt.

Does anyone know if there are accommodations available on the base?

Silverback`s link is DWAN only.

More important DWAN link: http://17wing.winnipeg.mil.ca/waccom/waccn/NIL%20IR%20Quarters.htm

Quote
There is a severe shortage of available single quarters (SQ), at 17 WG Winnipeg.  This due to the mandated Trg requirements of the resident of CF Schools and the large influx of single Pers posted/att-posted and Btl Members who fall within the parameters.

Effective immediately and until further notice, there will be no single quarter approvals for individuals proceeding on an authorized imposed restriction (IR) to 17 WG Winnipeg.

Well, that message is dated 2003, but the situation probably hasn't changed.  I know all the IR people in Borden had to move out of the barracks a few years ago.

I don't know about 17 Wing, but if you are on IR at 12 Wing, you can't stay in the shacks regardless if there are rooms available or not.

Not sure of the directive/policy, but I know when I was living-in in Warrior, the guy who was on IR from 14 Wing that moved in beside me got booted a week later once they found out he was on IR.

Here at 8 Wing all IR folks are forced to live in the shacks.

That makes sense $$-wise.  If there are rooms available in the already existing (and paid for with our tax dollars) facilities, why is the Accn folks with FAdmO in Halifax forcing people onto the economy and wasting $?  Its just a waste of $1400'ish a month IMO...and no doubt all that $ adds up PDQ.

Hello,,,

Just to add to this and pose another question.

I decided to move and spouse to our final place of residence approx 1600km from my posting in Ottawa in 2009. In 2010 I got posted to the West coast and decided not to go on IR for several reasons. Anyway, has anyone heard of going on IR after the fact? It was not actually offered to me in the first place (not on posting message) so not officially declined. Just wondering if I can go on IR now or would I have to wait until the next posting?
Thanks
