    What happens if I get diagnosed for ADHD?

    Hey, I’ve been in the reg force for 7 years. I don’t want to bore you guys with the basics of why… but I’m 90% sure I have ADHD that has never been diagnosed until now. I have a docs appt in a few days and will mention it. My question is: what would happen if I get diagnosed while in the...

    All Things CAF and Covid/ Covid Vaccine [merged]

    I was wondering if you guys can help me figure something out. Im very against the vaccination passport (this is not the discussion I want to have). What I am curious about is if we are allowed to go to a protest against it, as a CAF member. I’m not sure if there are regulations against this...

    VAC wait times

    On a side note, I noticed on a Facebook group that some people have waited 8 weeks to receive their lump sum! Crazy!!

    VAC wait times

    So rude sometimes... I try to give them the benefit of the doubt and tell myself they may have been having a bad day, but customer service is customer service. Be polite and courteous.

    VAC wait times

    Hmm, took 2 weeks from the day I requested the paperwork for the lump sum to the day I got it in my inbox. I sent the request in that same day. It’s been 18 days now that the request is in. I wonder what makes the wait time so different for people.

    VAC and Tinnitus

    I got 10 and I only had a prescription for anti depressants that apparently would work. I have not tried long enough to see if it really helps because I don’t want to become dependant. But that was enough for me to get 10. I would ask for them to look over it again.

    VAC wait times

    How long did it take for you guys to receive lump some once the paperwork for the request was submitted? I know the time frame says 6 weeks. But I’m curious as to people’s personal experience. I submitted it Oct 18.

    VAC wait times

    How does it work to get a lump sum instead of monthly? How long does it take from “completed” to received?

    VAC and Tinnitus

    Just received the “completed” notice! When I go in my VAC account, it says I am receiving 115$ for pain and suffering compensation. I thought they did payments in lump sums?

    VAC and Tinnitus

    I put my claim in for Tinnitus feb 25 2019. I just got informed that my claim is in step 3 now. The estimated wait time is 24 weeks. I’m just curious as to when this 24 weeks starts because of the wording in the "Track my application" section: When I click on step 3: "Your claim is at the...

    The WHO recommends breastfeeding until the age of 2. Maternity leave is only until the age of 1. My question is: what are our rights as breastfeeding mothers when it comes to being deployed or sent on exercises (field ex or sailing etc). * I am Navy and will be sailing. I still breastfeed my...
