Am I eligible?

Let’s start with the basics. To start a full or part-time career in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) you must:

  • be a Canadian citizen
  • be at least 18 years old (17 years old with parental consent), except:
    • For the Paid Education programs—you may be 16 years old (with parental consent)
    • For the Primary Reserves—you may be 16 years old (with parental consent) and must be enrolled as a full-time student
  • have completed at least Grade 10 or Secondaire IV in Québec (some jobs need higher levels of education)

You can submit your application even if you are not sure about the job-specific requirements. Once we get your application, we’ll work with you to determine if you qualify. If you have questions at any time throughout the process or you’d like to know which part-time jobs are available in your area, you can speak to a recruiter.
