DND Relocation

combats 236x300 DND Relocation  |  Kingston Real EstateRelocating is bittersweet.  I know.  During my 13 years in the Army I had my fair share of moving around.

I hope the links below are helpful to you. If you have any questions regarding military relocations, simply drop me a line and I can assist you in finding the answers you’re looking for.  No matter where in the country you are posted, I will help you personally or put you in touch with real estate professionals at your origin or destination.

Support to Military Families

Family Navigator is a website dedicated to helping Canadian Forces families navigate resources within their communities.  If you’re a CF family looking for tools to support you with the unique challenges that come with military lifestyle, this website provides information and direct links to local supports services and resources.

What Are Your Entitlements?

Here is the Canadian Forces Integrated Relocation Program Directive and Clarifications document for the last several years.  If you do not see one for this APS, that means there haven’t been any changes since it was last published so you can use the most recent APS’ document.

You may also find the It’s Your Move booklet handy.  It’s a practical guide to the process, including which benefits are taxable and non-taxable.

Please note that Civilian DND employees should refer to the Government of Canada Employees section, and members of the RCMP should refer to the RCMP Directive.

Getting Started

If your file has been authorized (for example, you’ve received your posting message), you’ll need to complete Pre-registration.  If you already completed this, go to the Secure Website for information specific to your employer that will help you prepare for your relocation.
