13 Notes on Human Resources (FTE):

Regular Force:

  • Regular Force personnel strength is measured by total strength and includes Vote 5 funded personnel and approximately 1,100 members on leave without pay (80 percent) related to parental leave).
    • Vote 5 funds are for Government contingencies, supplementing other appropriations to provide the Government with sufficient flexibility to meet miscellaneous, urgent or unforeseen departmental expenditures between Parliamentary supply periods.

Primary Reserve Class C:

  • Primary Reserve Class C figures are reported separately to maintain the visibility of reservists employed full-time in support of deployed/contingency operations.
  • For reporting purposes, Primary Reserve Class C are considered equivalent to the Regular Force personnel as they are entitled to equivalent pay, benefits and liability as a Regular Force member.
  • Primary Reserve Class C is calculated as person year. For example, two Primary Reservists on Class C service for six months would count as one military FTE.

Civilian:

  • The civilian workforce is planned through a salary wage envelope (SWE). For reporting purposes, the civilian workforce is measured by full-time equivalents (FTE). The FTE total includes all personnel tenure (indeterminate, term, casual and student employees) actively employed and calculated as person year. For example, two part-time employees sharing one position would count as one FTE.
  • Civilian workforce planned FTEs are subject to final budgetary approval.
  • Civilian FTEs do not include personnel on leave without pay.
  • FTE figures in the 2014-15 DPR are not consistent 1:1 with the FTE figures used for the allocation of the financial resources approved for the 2014-15 Annual Reference Level Update.

14 Notes on Human Resources Reserve Force:

  • The Primary Reserve are those personnel working in various capacities with the Canadian Armed Forces where Class A reservists perform part-time work and training, Class B reservists are employed full-time permanent (year-over-year) or perform incremental full-time employment or training for one or more periods of more than 14 but less than 365 consecutive days within any one year period, and Class C reservists are employed full-time (for operations only) but with the equivalent pay, benefits and liability as a Regular Force member.
  • The majority of Reservists serve on part-time (Class A) service. There is a significant reduction in Class A numbers during the summer as many personnel are away from their home units conducting training on short-term Class B status. In addition, some Primary Reserve members are inactive. For these reasons, total strength is not an accurate representation of those on duty. The portion of Primary Reserve that is on duty and receives payment is counted and reported as the Primary Reserve average paid strength (an annual monthly average).
  • Primary Reserve average paid strength reporting, planning and allocations are based on monthly reports provided by Assistant Deputy Minister (Finance and Corporate Services)/Director Strategic Finance Costing and Assistant Deputy Minister (Information Management)/Director Human Resource Information Management (DHRIM).
