  38. Notes on Human Resources:
    1. Regular Force: 
      1. Regular Force personnel strength is measured as the total Regular Force population, which includes project personnel and approximately 1,100 personnel on leave without pay (90% related to parental leave).  
      2. The Regular Force personnel strength is currently about 2,000 personnel below its authorized strength of 68,000. The institutional timetable that details the annual change to manning levels forecasts the Regular Force to its authorized strength prior to 2020. That carefully balanced rate of increase fully utilizes the CAF’s current training capacity. The institutional timetable will be closely monitored, with quick implementation of mitigating actions to preserve the forecast.
    2. Civilian personnel: 
      1. The civilian workforce is planned through a salary wage envelope. 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 may count as one FTE. 
      2. Planned civilian FTEs include Vote 5 funded personnel. 
      3. Planned civilian FTEs do not include personnel on leave without pay.  
      4. Civilian workforce planned FTEs are subject to final budgetary approval.
    3. Reserve Force personnel: 
      1. Reserve Force personnel work in various capacities within the Canadian Armed Forces. Class A reservists perform part-time work and training. Class B reservists are employed on a full-time basis either incrementally for one or more periods of more than 14 days or for periods of up to 3 years. Class C reservists are on full-time service with the equivalent pay, benefits as a Regular Force member.
      2. The majority of Reservists serve on part-time (Class A) service. The availability of these personnel may vary depending on time of year and their current status.
