  • To date, there have been revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt; a civil war in Libya; civil uprisings in Bahrain, Syria, and Yemen; major protests in Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Morocco, and Oman, as well as on the borders of Israel; and minor protests in Kuwait, Lebanon, Mauritania, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and Western Sahara. The protests have shared techniques of civil resistance in sustained campaigns involving strikes, demonstrations, marches and rallies, as well as the use of social media to organize, communicate, and raise awareness in the face of state attempts at repression and internet censorship.
  • Canadian Pilots have flown more than 100 missions over Libya since the beginning of the operation MOBILE. They have attacked armoured vehicles, ammunition depots, electronic warfare sites, mobile rocket launchers, and Libyan Warships
  • Reservist approaching 2 years w/ JAG branch Mirror reg force career Reserve unit clientele, and support reg force, which is what I am doing tonight Civilian (BC) lawyer 10 years – BC government – MAG, client is MSD; formerly Horne Coupar
  • Definition: it is a BC, legal document, signed by one person (the donor) to allow another person (the attorney) to act on his behalf Valid in BC – if planning to use out of province, confirm with institution first.
  • POA normally used for financial arrangements, such as car insurance or buying or selling property. IF ANTICIPATE USING FOR PURCHASE OR SALE OF REAL ESTATE – EXECUTE 2 ORIGINALS and NOTE: formal requirements for Land Title Docs – witness and execution per LTA GENERAL VS LIMITED POA NO REQR FOR INSTITUTIONS TO ACCEPT – COORDINATE IN ADVANCE
  • Your attorney must be: Someone you trust. Not someone who has financial problems. Not someone you don’t get along with, like an estranged spouse.(tell story about ex-wife cleaning out bank acct). There are potential consequences resulting from picking the wrong attorney, among them the wrong attorney could: Drain bank accounts. Liquidate assets. Buy assets with your money. Does not respect your wishes. Bottom line is to make sure that you trust your attorney.
  • Donor must give attorney clear instructions Donor must ensure BEFORE they leave that institutions will accept it Must complete any other docs that the attorney cannot (ie stat dec, must be done by person themselves), your last will, etc
  • Fiduciary duty, must act in good faith Follow instructions and be diligent in completing them Cannot delegate power Must respect ownership (title) of donor’s property and money Must keep proper accounts/keep track of activities done
  • Terminating events – end of POA, death of the donor, change in mental capacity (except enduring POA). Enduring POA can be drawn up, it lasts forever. Under BC Land Titles Act they will not accept POA over 3 years old for real estate transactions, except enduring POA Revocation (if you want to stop attorney acting for you): Revoke authority verbally; Get original POA back Write attorney letter saying it’s revoked (or email); and Write bank/fin institutions saying POA revoked.
  • A document that instructs how an estate should be distributed in the case that the testator (maker) dies.
  • A will helps make the distribution of an estate much easier. It gives control to the testator to distribute their property and assets as they wish. If no will = Intestate, this can tie up estate for a long time and distribution will be based on provincial law. In the meantime the estate is vested/kept with the court.
  • CF Will is adequate for: First marriage No kids Single members Simple finances ******ensure will is witnessed and a Will Certificate is completed****
  • CF will vs Lawyer prepared Will: a lawyer prepared Will will be recommended when: second or subsequent marriage Children in or outside marriage You want to create trust for small children You have complicated finances You have specifics request for division of assets My recommendation is to get professional advice ! ******If you do ensure a Will Certificate is completed****
  • Re do your will when a major life event happens: ie new marriage, children born, change in circumstances -Revisit the possibility of needing a will every 7 years
  • Double check as who you have named as your beneficiary, ensure that is who you want. SDB beneficiary does not automatically change with change in life circumstances (ie. Divorce)
  • Must have the original on you when you travel, keep with passports OR they will not let you out of the country.
  • Plan and prepare well. – and an important part of that plan is to have make sure your family has our number. If it is the only thing you do…make sure you have the MFRC number. We are there 24/7 – originally designed as the one stop shop for military families. One number people can remember and access as a starting point for any number of reasons – information, support, resources . So for you single members, make sure your parents have it in case they need to get information, and for you married folk, make sure it is on the fridge.
  • Know what resources are there if you need assistance
  • Deployments can be very isolating for those who don’t have strong support networks Lots of ways to get connected
  • Deployments can be very isolating for those who don’t have strong support networks Lots of ways to get connected
  • Under operational command of chief of maritime staff Read in full Note: The Ship has two rates (HA/RA) while under CEFCOM: Outside Maritime Exclusion Zone 3/1, Inside Maritime Exclusion Zone 4/2
  • CBI 209.335, DCBA 419 for greater than 24 hr deployment Completed on CF52 provide amount paid, dates of caregiver employment, and name and telephone of caregiver. What is the rate of reimbursement?
  • CBI 209.834 DCBA Aide Memoire $200 is used for Tune-up, Safety check, minor brake work (receipts required)
  • New DCBA Aide Memoire covers Custodial and PMV Storage. If single with housemates you are not entitled.
  • Briefly explain Operational Command and how it relates to benefits. For example, while under OPCOM CMS you are only entitled to SDA and while under OPCOM CEFCOM you are entitled to benefits under MFSI.
  • Mini M card, your minutes accumulate, but once the deployment is over you lose all the minutes. Use it or lose it! There is a 1800 number for when you are in a foreign port, speak to whomever is responsible for your phone cards onboard for more info. NOTE: Phone entitlement for CEFCOM Ops is 15 min for every 3 Days (CDIO 1.3-11.P)
  • DCBA 419 Note: The Ship has two rates (HA/RA) while under CEFCOM: Outside Maritime Exclusion Zone 3/1, Inside Maritime Exclusion Zone 4/3 Reference: DCBA Msg 407 Outside the MEZ under CEFCOM Comd: Taxable HA Level 3: $500.00 Risk Level 1: $167.00 Total: $667.00 Inside the MEZ under CEFCOM Comd: Non-Taxable HA Level 4: $666.00 Risk Level 3: $500.00 Total: $1,166.00
  • DCBA 419 Note: The Ship has two rates (HA/RA) while under CEFCOM: Outside Maritime Exclusion Zone 3/1, Inside Maritime Exclusion Zone 4/2 Reference: DCBA Msg 407 Outside the MEZ under CEFCOM Comd: non Taxable HA Level 3: $500.00 Risk Level 1: $167.00 Total: $667.00 Inside the MEZ under CEFCOM Comd: Non-Taxable HA Level 4: $666.00 Risk Level 3: $500.00 Total: $1,166.00
  • CBI 10.3.04 Full table if you have more points than 36. One point for every calendar month of service. For partial months member must have 10 days to receive point.
  • The Chief of the Defence Staff approves the HA level for the post upon recommendation by the Departmental Hardship and Risk Committee. Once established, the HA Level is reviewed on a semi-annual basis or as required for each operation. Discuss option of choosing SDA vice HA. NOTE: HA and Risk are tied together if mbrs choose SDA then there are no HA and Risk Entitlements. As discussed I am looking at simplifying this in the future to allow for the HA/Risk for ships on CEFCOM Missions at a minimum to equal the highest level of Sea Allowance. If SDA elected, HA Bonus is also not available as the two are linked. In addition, time does not accumulate toward HA.
  • Reference DCBA 407
  • DCBA 407
  • DCBA 410 – Rates for 2008/2009 OPS FSP, HA, and RA DCBA 413 DCBA 414 – OP MOBILE Received HA 4 RA 3 for various areas of operations. Verify and Update risk level. Need to recaculate: HA Level 3: 500 Level 4: 666 Risk Level 1: 167 3: 500
  • DDIO Chap 12 Annex F Mission leave is not to be taken in mission area. If not all mission leave is used you can apply for special leave in lieu of mission leave upon your return. No need to apply for the SML it should be granted automatically as part of re-integration Based on a 7 Day work week CEFCOM has approved the granting of 3 day SML per month. CDIO will be amended to reflect the following: All Missions: 2.5 Days SML Missions with 7 day work week: 3 Days SML
  • CBI 10.21 -must be taken during time of deployment - CEFCOM has set a requirement that HLTA will only be granted to members who are expected to be in theatre 120 days. TF Comd will restrict leave for mbrs not expected to be in theatre for 120 days. -cannot be used for BF, GF, or Friend. Must be NOK,married, or common law -not authorized during the first 30 days or last 30 days of deployment, unless waiver sought THE THIRD LOCATION RATE IS THE AVERAGE COST OF THE MOST ECONOMICAL RETURN AIR FARE AS OF 01 JUN FOR THE MOST DIRECT FLIGHT BETWEEN THE POST OR MISSION AND THE CITIES OF HALIFAX, QUEBEC, OTTAWA, EDMONTON, VANCOUVER AND VICTORIA BASED ON A 60 DAY ADVANCED BOOKING. 01 JUN IS USED BECAUSE IT REPRESENTS THE HIGH SEASON AND COINCIDES WITH THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF OTHER TRAVEL RELATED ALLOWANCES. THIRD LOCATION RATES WILL NO LONGER BE ANNOUNCED TWICE A YEAR HLTA/RHLTA: Mbrs cannot make own bookings all bookings must be done through UNIGLOBE has there are specific requirements that must be met with bookings. UNIGLOBE has a MOU and will bill the military directly and there will be no cost to the member. Mbrs have the option of booking own Third location or they can use UNIGLOBE again mbr will only be responsible to pay any amounts that are over the third location to UNIGLOBE.
