Changes to compensation and benefits for Canadian Armed Forces members

June 18, 2019 - Ottawa - National Defence / Canadian Armed Forces

The Treasury Board has approved a number of changes to compensation and benefits for members of the Canadian Armed Forces.

Many of these changes are major, and most are effective immediately and backdated. For most increases affecting pay or allowances, members should begin receiving the new rates on their end of August pay.

The Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces review pay and benefits on a regular basis to ensure members are being compensated in a fair manner. These changes are being made to ensure pay and benefits remain competitive in the labour market.
