Extension of Class “C” Service beyond 24 Months


Extension of Class “C” Service beyond 24 Months

Case number


Compensation and Benefit Instructions 210.72 limits extensions of Class “C” service for reservists, who became injured or ill in the performance of their duties, to a maximum of 24 months.  As the evidence showed that the Director Casualty Support Administration had approved extensions of greater than 24 months in a number of cases, the Committee concluded that this action seriously affected the compensation and benefits received by several Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members.


The Committee recommended that the Chief of the Defence Staff :

•    immediately put a stop to this practice;
•    ensure that the appropriate authorities rapidly identify CAF members who have been or are affected; and
•    engage Treasury Board and the Director Claims and Civil Litigation in an effort to resolve the situation.
