Intended Place of Residence (IPR)


Compensation and Benefit Instructions (CBI) 208 Integrated Relocation Program (IRP), Canadian Forces Relocation Directive A-PP-005-IRP-AG-001


When a serving Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) member is deceased, IRP benefits may be provided to the CAF member's dependants as though they were a CAF member with 10 or more years of Regular Force service.


A surviving spouse and dependants of a member who dies while in service are entitled to the reimbursement of relocation expenses if the member was Regular Force, Reserve Force employed on Class C service, or Reserve Force employed on Class B service if the dependants had been moved at public expense.

The entitlements include the move of household goods and effects (HG&E), in accordance with the Canadian Forces Integrated Relocation Program (CFIRP).

In the case of a member who dies without dependants, reimbursement is authorized for disposal of the primary residence and move of the HG&E.


Time limitations to this benefit can be found under Relocation Directive - Chapter 14 - Move to Intended Place of residence (IPR) on Release or Transfer from the Regular Force.


To initiate a request for a move, the point of contact is the Release Section of the closest CAF Base. For assistance in obtaining contact information for the Release Section, inquire through the Family Information Line at 1-800-866-4546.
