    VAC wait times

    Sent a message to VAC this week, received an answer this morning, the oldest common claims they are working on currently are dated at Feb 2019 (Stage 3, or decision stage).

    VAC wait times

    Big drop in estimated wait times this week. Went from 81 weeks down to 60 weeks for first applications. Hopefully lots of you guys got their claim dealt with! :) Or they just did a couple easy cases really quick to drop the average !

    Army Communication & Information Systems Specialists (Sig Op, Lineman and LCIS Amalgamation)

    This is apparently not correct anymore, they are looking at NOT merging IST and CST. Current rumor has it that D Sigs thinks it's not a good idea anymore. As such, implementation was delayed until Apr 2020. And as for the QS/TP (at least for dp1 and dp2, for Sig Tech), they are complete, we are...

    Showing my ID or saying to a US Border Agent generally stops all questioning and gives me instant entry into the US is the most I get out of my ID card while traveling. Not so much when returning to Canada sadly.

    Army Communication & Information Systems Specialists (Sig Op, Lineman and LCIS Amalgamation)

    Lots of people are in that boat. Most of the guys I work with got at least their spec pay, though some of them were put into a lower pay level in the same rank(Should have been 4, they are 3) They were told to wait out until the PRZ note is removed then they will be able to act. As for me, i...

    I've inquired before and ILPs do not provide advance on courses. Reimbursement upon successfully passing the course.

    I heard that they were going to make a decision on the ACISS trade as to what structure it will be yesterday.  Has anyone got anything ?
