It is divided into the following sections:


Section 14.01 General principles

14.1.02 IPR Elections and Time limitations

IPR Elections

A CF member elects an IPR location in writing by completing the CF form issued for that purpose.

An election can be made no earlier than the applicable time limits contained in Section 14.5 (CF members electing an Early Move to IPR).

A CF member can change their IPR location at any time before any expenses related to the IPR location are reimbursed to, or paid on behalf of, a CF member (not including file administration costs).

After any expenses have been paid in relation to the elected IPR location, article 14.1.03 controls changing IPR locations.

Time Limitations - General

CF members may claim the entitlements in this chapter if they have both:

  • elected an IPR location; and
  • commenced their move to their IPR.

Unless otherwise provided in this Chapter, only IPR related expenses that are incurred within two years after the date of release or transfer are eligible for reimbursement.

(TB amended, 19 April 2018)

Time Limitations - Extensions

DGCB or DCBA may grant an extension for a period of up to one year if he or she determines that any of the following circumstances prevent the member from moving to the IPR within that time limit:

  1. an illness of or injury to the member or their dependant;
  2. the vocational rehabilitation or vocational training undertaken by the member;
  3. the completion of an educational program by the member or their dependant; or
  4. any other circumstance that delays the move to the IPR and that is beyond the control of the member.

An extension granted by DGCB or DCBA begins on the day after the day on which the time limit ends.(TB amended, 19 April 2018)

Time Limits – Extensions – Exceptional Circumstances

The Chief of the Defence Staff personally – or the Chief of Military Personnel personally – may grant a further extension for a period of up to three years if he or she determines that there are particularly compelling reasons that prevent the member from moving to the IPR and that relate to

  • an illness of or injury to the member or their dependant and confirmed by a medical doctor, or
  • an unusual, undeserved or disproportionate hardship for the member that is beyond the member’s control.

This extension shall be granted only if the member submits his or her request for an extension to the Chief of the Defence Staff or the Chief of Military Personnel before the end of the first extension.

(TB, effective 19 April 2018)

Other

When CF members exercise their entitlement to an HHT and fail to relocate (D)HG&E within this time limitation, recovery action will be initiated on HHT expenses. (also see article 14.3.03)

Note. CF members who have changed dependant status since their release from the CF must provide proof of dependant status (e.g. marriage certificate, birth certificate). If common law status is required, CF members must see release section with appropriate documentation for statutory declaration.

14.1.03 IPR reinstatement

If the HG&E has been moved at public expense out of the current residence for the purpose of moving it to an IPR location (other than under article 14.4.02 – IPR election to LTS benefits), then an IPR location cannot be reinstated (i.e. amended).

If the HG&E has not been moved at public expense out of the current residence, or has been moved into local LTS under article 14.4.02, then an IPR location can be reinstated (i.e. amended) but only after the CF member repays all expenses paid in relation to the original IPR location (not in relation to the current residence).

14.1.04 Reimbursement of expenses incurred prior to eligibility

CF members are entitled to payment of relocation expenses incurred prior to meeting the eligibility criteria, once the criteria at art 14.2.03 are met and the member is authorized to elect an IPR location (see article 14.1.02 and Section 14.5).

In these circumstances actual and reasonable expenses will be reimbursed supported by receipts, provided the date of the expense is no more than six years prior to the members release/transfer date or election date, whichever is earlier.

Despite article 14.01, the entitlements will be based on:

  • if the HG&E is packed before 16 September 2014, then the CFIRP that was in effect at the time of meeting the eligibility criteria or on 15 September 2014, whichever is earlier, or
  • if the HG&E is packed on or after 16 September 2014, this CFIRP policy.

14.1.05 Reenrol before electing IPR

QR&O article 209.25 (Time Limit) controls.

The effect is that CF members who did not exercise IPR benefits, whose entitlement did not expire, and subsequently re-enroll in – or transfer to – the Regular Force shall have the expiry date of their benefits extended by the corresponding number of days served in their new period of Regular Force service.

14.1.06 Reserve - periods of service

QR&O article 209.25 (Time Limit) controls.

The effect is that CF members who released or transferred from the Regular Force, did not exercise IPR benefits, whose entitlement did not expire, and who serve on periods of Class B or C service shall have the expiry date of their benefits extended by the corresponding number of days served on Class B or C service.

14.1.07 Meaning of Local Move

In this chapter, "local move" means a relocation of 40 kilometres or less, measured using the shortest normal route available to the public, from a person’s current residence to their intended place of residence.

14.1.08 Meaning of move commenced

In this chapter, a move is deemed to have commenced if an expense has been incurred, or a contractual commitment has been made, with respect to any relocation activity for which a benefit is payable to CF members who are transferred from the Regular Force to the Reserve Force under QR&O article 10.04 (Voluntary Transfer to Reserve Force). See also QR&O article 209.20(3).

For example, a CF member who has entered into a listing agreement with a real estate agent to dispose of their current residence has made a contractual commitment to pay a realtor fee upon the sale of their home, and is therefore considered to have commenced their move to their IPR.

14.3.10 Local Move to IPR --- Entitlement & Amount

Generally, there is no entitlement to be paid relocation expenses incurred in respect of a local move to an IPR location. See also QR&O article 209.24 (Local Move).

There are four exceptions. They are described under the "Exception" headings below. Regarding the exceptions:

  • A member who qualifies for only one exception is entitled to the amount for that exception; and
  • A member who qualifies for more than one exception is entitled to the greater of the amounts ("the best move").
Exception Type #1:

IF the CF member is:

  • a former Regular Force member whose release/transfer date from the Regular Force is prior to 16 September 2014, regardless of the date their move commences; or
  • a serving Regular Force member who commenced their move to a local IPR prior to 16 September 2014;

THEN the amount of the entitlement is:

  • the amount for a full move, within the limits provided in this directive for all payable benefits.

(TB amended, 19 April 2018)

Exception Type #2:

IF the CF member is:

Exception Type #4:

The Chief of the Defence Staff personally — or the Chief of Military Personnel personally— may approve reimbursement of the relocation expenses for a move to a local IPR, if they determine that there are compassionate reasons that are particularly compelling and that involve:
