3. Overview

Context

3.1 The CAF is committed to maintaining high levels of operational effectiveness and readiness.

3.2 To achieve high levels of operational effectiveness and readiness, CAF members are required to be physically fit and able to perform general military, common defence and security duties, as well as meet the demands of their military occupation.

3.3 Physical fitness is a minimum operational standard as set out in DAOD 5023-1, Minimum Operational Standards Related To Universality of Service.

Participation

3.4 CAF members of the Regular Force and Primary Reserve shall participate in regular physical fitness training. COs are responsible to ensure that CAF members are provided opportunities to conduct physical fitness activities during normal working hours when circumstances permit. When this is not feasible, CAF members should conduct physical fitness activities outside normal working hours. As general guidance, physical fitness activities should be conducted in 60-minute sessions, a minimum of five times per week.

Physical Fitness Evaluation

3.5 CAF members are evaluated in accordance with the following table:

CAF members of the …are required, unless exempted from evaluation (see the Exemptions from Physical Fitness map), to meet the mandatory physical fitness standard …

Regular Force

  • on an annual basis.

Primary Reserve

  • on an annual basis if attached, seconded or transferred on consent to the Regular Force or Primary Reserve.

Cadet Organizations Administration and Training Service

Supplementary Reserve

Note - Details on physical fitness evaluation can be found on the PSP website.

4. Administrative Requirements and Procedures

Period of Validity of the Results of a Physical Fitness Evaluation

4.1 The results of a physical fitness evaluation are valid:

  1. for a period of 365 days beginning on the date on which a pass rating is achieved; or
  2. for a period of 730 days beginning on the date on which an incentive standard is achieved under the CF EXPRES incentive program (see the CF EXPRES Incentive Program Exemption block).

4.2 The date on which a pass rating or incentive standard is achieved is set out in:

  1. the appropriate evaluation report form, e.g. Form DND 279, CF EXPRES Program; and
  2. the fitness panel in the HRMS.

4.3 A CAF member who is not exempted from physical fitness evaluation requires valid evaluation results:

  1. on the effective date of a promotion, in accordance with promotion policy in applicable CFAOs; and
  2. on the start date of a period of Class "B" or "C" Reserve Service.

4.4 For exemptions from physical fitness evaluation, see the Exemptions from Physical Fitness Evaluation map.

Physical Fitness Evaluation and Reporting

4.5 The following table sets out the requirements for physical fitness evaluation and reporting:

Report/FormRequirements

Health appraisal questionnaire

All CAF members shall complete a health appraisal questionnaire prior to attempting a physical fitness evaluation.

If there are indications of a health problem, a medical referral shall be made to a CAF medical care provider to confirm the CAF member's ability to attempt the complete evaluation or to be exempted from the evaluation.

The medical referral shall be ordered by Form DND 582, Medical Examination, or Form DND 2206, FF PFMP - Medical Referral, as applicable.

Evaluation report form

The results of the physical fitness evaluation of a CAF member shall be reported by 31 March on one of the following evaluation forms, as applicable:

  • Form DND 279;

  • an approved environmental physical fitness evaluation form; or

  • an approved military occupation physical fitness evaluation form.

HRMS input

The CO of a CAF member shall:

  • ensure that the results of the CAF member's physical fitness evaluation are entered into the fitness panel of the HRMS by 31 March; or

  • indicate why an evaluation was not conducted.

Personnel evaluation report annotation

5. Physical Fitness Standards

General

5.1 Physical fitness standards are based on, and have been scientifically validated against, the performance requirements of general, environmental, military occupation and operational duties.

Common Military Tasks as a Basis for Minimum Physical Fitness Standards

5.2 The MPFS are derived from the following five common military tasks which a CAF member might be expected to perform in a time of emergency:

  1. sea evacuation;
  2. land stretcher evacuation;
  3. low-high crawl;
  4. entrenchment dig; and
  5. sandbag carry.

Physical Fitness Testing Categories

5.3 The CAF recognizes that different physical fitness standards are required for the performance of a range of general, environmental, military occupation and operational duties in the CAF. The four physical fitness testing categories are set out in the following table:

Testing CategoryUnless exempted from evaluation (see the Exemptions from Physical Fitness Evaluation map), successful completion is required …Consequence of failure is …

MPFS

  • on an annual basis by CAF members designated in the Participation block, except for CAF members who:

    • are subject to an environmental or military occupation standard that has been assessed by the CFPSA as equal to or higher than the MPFS; and

    • have met the applicable environmental or military occupation standard during the assessment period.

  • administrative action (see the CF Members Subject to the MPFS block).

Environmental standard

  • on an annual basis by CAF members actively serving in or posted to an environment.

  • administrative action (see the CF Members Subject to an Environmental Standard block).

Military occupation standard

  • on an annual basis by CAF members serving in a designated military occupation.

  • removal from active operational duties, compulsory military occupation transfer and/or other administrative action (see the CF Members Subject to a Military Occupation Standard block).

Operational deployment standard

  • by CAF members prior to a specific operational deployment.

  • not being deployed.

Alternative Protocol

5.4 Using Form DND 582, Medical Examination, a CAF medical care provider may authorize the step test approved by the CFPSA as an alternative protocol in place of the 20 meter shuttle run. The CAF member's CO shall ensure that the CAF member is given an opportunity to attempt the step test.

Modification to MPFS Testing Protocol

5.5 If a CAF member is unable on a permanent basis to perform the specific testing protocol set out in the CF EXPRES Operations Manual, CFPSA may authorize a minor modification to the protocol or an alternate testing protocol.

6. Exemptions from Physical Fitness Evaluation

General

6.1 The CAF recognizes that exemptions from physical fitness evaluation should be provided in specific circumstances as set out in the following blocks.

Exemption from MPFS Evaluation

6.2 A CAF member is exempt from MPFS evaluation during an assessment period if the CAF member:

  1. qualifies for an exemption under the CF EXPRES incentive program (see the CF EXPRES Incentive Program Exemption block);
  2. has met the applicable environmental or military occupation standard that has been assessed by the CFPSA as being equal to or higher than the MPFS incentive standard - the CAF member is considered to have achieved the MPFS incentive standard in such cases;
  3. is assigned a MEL that:
    1. is temporary, covers the assessment period and prevents a complete physical fitness evaluation (see the Exemption due to a Temporary MEL block); or
    2. is permanent and prevents a complete physical fitness evaluation (see the Exemption due to a Permanent MEL block); or
  4. is in the process of release.

Note - For purposes of the annual personnel evaluation report, personnel readiness verification and the fitness panel in the HRMS, the physical fitness tests for the following are considered to have standards equal to or higher than the MPFS incentive standard:

  1. Land Force Command;
  2. Joint Task Force 2;
  3. the Canadian Special Operations Regiment;
  4. officer cadets at the Royal Military College of Canada;
  5. military firefighters;
  6. search and rescue personnel; and
  7. military divers.

CF EXPRES Incentive Program Exemption

6.3 A CAF member who is required to complete the MPFS is exempt if the CAF member qualifies for an exemption under the CF EXPRES incentive program, as set out in the Canadian Forces EXPRES Operations Manual.

6.4 The CF EXPRES incentive program applies to the general military standard and is designed to promote a superior level of physical fitness. To qualify for an exemption from evaluation, a CAF member is required to meet the MPFS for all components of the EXPRES evaluation while also attaining the designated incentive standard.

6.5 The exemption from evaluation under the CF EXPRES incentive program applies only to one assessment period. The results are valid for a period of 730 days beginning on the date on which the incentive standard is achieved.

6.6 An exemption from evaluation is recorded on Form DND 279 by the PSP evaluator and in the fitness panel in the HRMS.

Exemption from Environmental or Military Occupation Evaluation

6.7 A CAF member who is required to meet an environmental or military occupation standard:

  1. is required to meet only the MPFS, or an environmental standard which has been assessed by the CFPSA as being equal to or higher than the MPFS, if the CAF member is not engaged during the assessment period in the duties of the military occupation for which the military occupation standard was designed;
  2. is required to meet only the MPFS if the CAF member is not serving during the assessment period in the environment for which the environmental standard was designed;
  3. is exempt from meeting the standard if assigned a MEL that:
    1. is temporary, covers the assessment period and prevents a complete physical fitness evaluation (see the Exemption due to a Temporary MEL block); or
    2. is permanent and prevents a complete physical fitness evaluation (see the Exemption due to a Permanent MEL block); or
  4. is exempt from meeting the standard if in the process of release.

6.8 A CAF member who is required to meet the MPFS is exempt from that evaluation if otherwise exempt in accordance with the Exemption from MPFS Evaluation block.

Exemption Requests

6.9 DGMP may approve, in exceptional operational circumstances, the exemption of a CAF member from an annual physical fitness evaluation. Requests for an exemption are to be submitted through the chain of command to DGMP. Documentation of an exemption is placed on the CAF member's file and recorded in the fitness panel in the HRMS.

Exemption due to a Temporary MEL

6.10 Any temporary MEL that may prevent the complete physical fitness evaluation of a CAF member shall be set out by a CAF medical care provider in Form DND 582, Medical Examination.

6.11 If a CAF member is assigned a temporary MEL that prevents a complete physical fitness evaluation during the entire assessment period, the personnel evaluation report of the CAF member shall be annotated as "medically excused". However, if the MEL only applies to part of the assessment period but prevents a complete evaluation by 31 March and the CAF member was not evaluated during the assessment period prior to the period of the MEL, the report shall be annotated as "not tested", with an explanation in the narrative of the report.

6.12 When a temporary MEL that prevents a complete physical fitness evaluation expires and the CAF member does not have valid test results (see the Period of Validity of the Results of a Physical Fitness Evaluation block), a CO shall approve a period, following the date of expiry of the MEL, of up to 90 days as requested by the CAF member, in which the CAF member is to successfully complete the applicable evaluation.

Exemption due to a Permanent MEL

6.13 If a CAF member is assigned a permanent MEL that prevents a complete physical fitness evaluation, the CAF member shall be subject to an AR to determine suitability to serve. The personnel evaluation report of the CAF member shall be annotated as "medically excused".
