What Will I Get Out Of Joining The CAF?

May 17, 2011

From Day 1, you will enjoy a competitive salary and great benefits. But a career in the CAF is so much more than making a living, it will allow you to make a difference in the world. There is no career more challenging or rewarding than serving in the Canadian Forces (CF) where you can take part in defending our country and participate in world events that will change your life and the lives of the people you are helping.

You will obtain world-class qualifications. You will gain skills and leadership that will serve you well during your career in the military. You will visit more destinations that most people will see in a lifetime and make great friends along the way. There really is no other career quite like it.

Your journey as a CF member begins in Basic Training, which lasts about three months. It will be physically demanding: you can expect to wake up early, do lots of push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups, and to hike several kilometres. But it will makeyou physically and mentally fit, and you will gain a huge sense of achievement, purpose and confidence.After Basic Training you will then receive the schooling and education required for your specific job. Because you will be handling some of the world’s most innovative technologies and sophisticated weaponry, we will keep providing you with plenty of opportunities for advanced training throughout your career.

Once you have been trained, you will be posted to one of our bases across Canada. You’ll find bases are places of constant activity, with a huge range of social and sporting facilities to help you keep fit, relax and enjoy your life outside of working hours. Because our members and their families are our greatest asset, their quality of life is important to us; there is a Military Family Resource Centre on every base, offering a variety of programs, privileges and support groups.
