Children’s education outside Canada: Educational screening

There are several factors that a Canadian Armed Forces member should consider before accepting a posting outside Canada (OUTCAN). This education piece provides an overview of one factor: children’s educational needs. It provides information for members and their families to make informed decisions before a posting.

Prior to a posting OUTCAN

When Canadian Armed Forces members are being considered for a posting OUTCAN, they are required to undergo a screening process. Members with school-aged children must complete the Children's Educational Screening form to make sure the educational needs of their child can be met at the posting location. Educational screening is required for each child under the age of 23.

For questions about the Children's Educational Screening form or the educational screening process, members should contact their Education Clerk at the gaining Unit Record Support (URS) identified on their posting message, or email Children’s Education Management at cemgee@forces.gc.ca. More information can also be found on the CAF Connection website and OUTCAN - FAQ.

Members should not make any financial commitments until a Posting Message is received as the Canadian Armed Forces will not be able to reimburse until such a time.
