# 2021-181 Pay and Benefits, Canadian Forces Integrated Relocation Program, Capital improvements in accordance with article 8.2.10 of the CFIRP

Canadian Forces Integrated Relocation Program (CFIRP), Capital Improvements in accordance with article 8.2.10 of the CFIRP

Case summary

F&R Date: 2021-09-06

The grievor disagreed with the decision to deny him the capital improvement (CI) benefit on the sale of his home in 2020. The Committee found that, in accordance with the revised Canadian Forces Integrated Relocation Program Directive, the home had to have been sold prior to 19 April 2018 to qualify for the CI benefit. Consequently, the Committee found that the grievor was not entitled to the benefit and recommended that the grievance be denied. 

FA Decision Summary

The Final Authority, Director Canadian Forces Grievance Authority, agreed with the Committee's findings and recommendation. She noted that, although the grievor purchased a residence and made capital improvements in 2017 in line with the policy then in force, the CI reimbursement benefit was eliminated in 2018. Consequently, when he sold the residence in 2020, he was not eligible for reimbursement.
