(c) a casual allowance compensates for the infrequent exercise of skill, exposure to an environment, or liability to perform a specific duty;

(d) the nature and normal duties of the position (e.g. regularly involving operations and training duties as opposed to regularly involving clerical and support duties);

(e) the location of the position on the Canadian Forces (CF) establishment (e.g. inside or outside of an operational unit, formation, or element);

(f) the designation, if any, of similar positions on the CF’s establishment; and

(g) the financial implications of the designation upon the CF and Department of National Defence (DND).

205.10(3) (Designation) The designation of a position:

(a) must be in writing;

(b) is effective on the date as requested in the application for the designation or any later date;

(c) must specify the CBI to which it relates; and

(d) must be published on a defence web site as defined in article 1.22 (Electronic Publication and Notification of QR&O) of the QR&O unless there is a security reason against doing so.

205.10(4) (Meaning – Occupy a Designated Position) In this chapter, a member is considered to occupy a designated position when the member is assigned as follows:

(a) as set out in a posting message, to a designated position,

(b) by attached posting or as Military Manning Overhead (MMO) to a unit, formation or element in which all the positions are designated positions, or

(c) by attached posting or as Military Manning Overhead (MMO) to a unit, formation or element that has designated positions and the member performs substantially the same duties as a member who is assigned to a designated position.

(a) an individual position;

(b) any or all positions within a sub-unit or sub-element; or

(c) any or all positions within a unit, formation, command, or element.

2.  A member who is not in a designated position may be entitled to receive a similar casual allowance on the basis of their performed duties or functions.

205.20 - Credit Points

205.20(1) (Interpretation – Eligible Service) In this instruction “eligible service” is service as a member of the CF when a member has satisfied the entitlement conditions for an allowance listed in paragraph 205.15(1) or under CBI 10.3.05 (Hardship Allowance).

205.20(2) (General) Credit points will be used to track the months of eligible service a member accumulates during their career in relation to the allowances listed in paragraph 205.15(1) and to calculate the member’s monthly rate for an allowance.

205.20(3) (Earning — General Rule) A member earns one credit point for each month in which the member has completed a minimum of nine consecutive full days of eligible service. Despite the number of allowances to which a member may be entitled in a month, only one credit point can be earned for that month.

205.20(4) (Earning — One Allowance) When a member is entitled to receive only one of the allowances listed under paragraph 205.15(1) or under CBI 10.3.05 (Hardship Allowance), the credit point earned will relate to that allowance.

205.20(5) (Earning — Two Allowances — Aircrew Allowance) A member who is entitled to receive an allowance under CBI 205.32 (Aircrew Allowance (Monthly)) may, for the same month, also receive an allowance under CBI 10.3.05 (Hardship Allowance), or CBI 205.33 (Land Duty Allowance (Monthly)) or CBI 205.35 (Sea Duty Allowance). The one credit point earned for that month will relate to the allowance under CBI 205.32 (Aircrew Allowance (Monthly)).

205.20(6) (Earning — Two Allowances — Special Operations Allowance) A member who is entitled to receive an allowance under CBI 205.385 (Special Operations Allowance (Monthly)) may, for the same month, also receive an allowance under either CBI 10.3.05 (Hardship Allowance) or CBI 205.33 (Land Duty Allowance (Monthly)). The one credit point earned for that month will relate to the allowance under CBI 205.385 (Special Operations Allowance (Monthly)). 

205.20(7) (Use — General) Subject to paragraphs (8) to (13), credit points earned for eligible service in relation to an allowance listed in paragraph 205.15(1) can only be used to calculate the member’s monthly rate for that allowance.

205.20(8) (Use — One Allowance) When a member is entitled to receive an allowance under CBI 205.32 (Aircrew Allowance (Monthly)), or CBI 205.33 (Land Duty Allowance (Monthly)), or CBI 205.35 (Sea Duty Allowance (Monthly)), or CBI 205.37 (Submarine Allowance (Monthly)), then the rate of the member’s monthly allowance will be calculated using the sum of:

(a) the credit points that the member has earned throughout their career in relation to the monthly allowances under:

(vii) CBI 205.385 (Special Operations Allowance (Monthly)), and

(b) the number of credit points that the member would have earned had CBI 205.33 (Land Duty Allowance (Monthly)) been in effect prior to 1 April 2007.

205.20(9) (Use — Two Allowances – Aircrew Allowance and Hardship Allowance) If a member is entitled to the Aircrew Allowance (Monthly) under CBI 205.32 and the Hardship Allowance under CBI 10.3.05 in respect of the same month, the member’s entitlement for each allowance shall be calculated as follows:

(a) for the allowance under CBI 205.32 (Aircrew Allowance (Monthly)), using the credit points that the member has earned throughout their career for this allowance only; and

(b) for the allowance under CBI 10.3.05 (Hardship Allowance), in accordance with the terms and conditions of that allowance.

205.20(10) (Use — Two Allowances —Aircrew Allowance and Land Duty Allowances) If a member is entitled to the Aircrew Allowance (Monthly) under CBI 205.32 and the Land Duty Allowance under CBI 205.33 in respect of the same month, the member’s entitlement for each allowance shall be calculated as follows:

205.29 - Environmental Allowances Matrix

205.29(1) (Intent) Environmental allowances are meant to compensate members whose military duties involve exposure to adverse environmental conditions that are not normally experienced by other members and to serve as an incentive to attract and retain members under such conditions.

205.29(2) (Rule – General) A member is not entitled to receive more than one allowance at the same time when the purpose of each allowance is to compensate for substantially the same adverse environmental conditions. For example, a member who is entitled to receive an allowance under CBI 205.33 (Land Duty Allowance (Monthly)) is not entitled to at the same time to receive an allowance under CBI 205.335 (Land Duty Allowance (Casual)), or under CBI 205.35 (Sea Duty Allowance (Monthly)), or under CBI 205.355 (Sea Duty Allowance (Casual)), or CBI 205.37 (Submarine Allowance (Monthly)), or CBI 205.375 (Submarine Allowance (Casual)).

205.29(3) (Matrix) A member is entitled to the allowance set out in a row to the matrix to this instruction if, in respect of the same period, the member is not in receipt of an allowance set out in a column to the matrix that is indicated, when reading across the applicable row, by an X located in that column. For example, in the row for CBI 205.33 (Land Duty Allowance (Monthly)), an “X” is located in the columns for CBI 205.335 (Land Duty Allowance (Casual)), CBI 205.35 (Sea Duty Allowance (Monthly)), CBI 205.355 (Sea Duty Allowance (Casual)), CBI 205.37 (Submarine Allowance (Monthly)), and CBI 205.375 (Submarine Allowance (Casual)). As a result, a member is entitled to the Land Duty Allowance (Monthly) if the member is not receiving one of the other allowances in respect of the same period.
