I'm generally not a fan of the Legion but they have managed to come up with a good joint program with BCIT. They have a lot of programs which are maybe more relevant to the NCM who isn't looking to be come an officer and do a full four year degree. They also have a few degree programs as well. They will also work with online partners like Thompson Rivers University or Athabaska if they don't offer online version of needed courses.

Nope it isn't the same thing.

Original Wording:
50%/year to a yearly max of $2000 for 4 years
Class A Reservist (part-time military member) who is going to school full time will utilize the $8,000 as their yearly costs normally exceed $4000/year

Class B Reservist (full-time military member) who is going to school full time averages $1,500 to $2,000 /year in school fees - they would get $1,000/year in reimbursement - after 4 years they received $4,000 in reimbursement and because of the "4 year max" they can no longer claim reimbursement.

New Wording:
50%/year to a yearly max of $2000 for a career max of $8000

Class A Reservist (part-time military member) who is going to school full time will utilize the $8,000 as their yearly costs normally exceed $4000/year

Class B Reservist (full-time military member) who is going to school full time averages $1,500 to $2,000 /year in school fees - they would get $1,000/year in reimbursement - whether it takes them 4 years, 6.5 years (in my case), 10 years or 15 years to do their degree they will still get the $8,000 that the Class A Reservist got in 4 years.

So while it doesn't change a thing for the Class A reservist, it does change it for the Class B member.
Ah. That makes more sense. Thank You :)
