Army Army Reserve in Canada: Soldier Information Handbook 2023 Updated 2023

Relates primarily to the Army
This handbook was created to provide serving soldiers (and hoping-to-be soldiers) with information that will demystify the experience of being in the Canadian Army Reserve. If you want to know what it's like being part of an Army Reserve unit, read Section 1. If you just joined, read Section 2. The last section is for everyone who is already serving and needs help to find information and get things done. This handbook was designed to be the experienced and knowledgeable friend you always wanted - someone who can answer questions about how things are supposed to work and where information is hidden. There are over 160 links to sites that people always assume you already know about.

Find out about the uniforms, living out of a ruck, promotions, getting in shape, what your career courses are (all trades), free counselling, hygiene in the field, how to access all the benefits that the army promised you, and lots more. Bookmark this resource - you will come back to it at different times during your career.

Updated with all the new 2023 information. Enjoy a little light reading at The Army Reserve in Canada - Soldier Information Handbook

A very, very worthwhile read. Extremely comprehensive.
We are happy you found it useful, and thank you for the positive feedback. Every June we update the handbook based on new policies that come out - we will keep doing this until we retire. :)
