Who We Are
“When you enrol through our paid university program, the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) will pay for your tuition, books and academic equipment. You will also receive a salary and benefits while you attend school. Your salary will include full medical and dental care as well as vacation with full pay. In exchange, you must complete two months of service in the CAF for each month of paid tuition.
If you qualify for paid university, you will enter the Canadian Military College system under the Regular Officer Training Plan (ROTP). As part of this plan, you will complete your undergraduate degree at either the Royal Military College of Canada in Kingston, Ontario, The Royal Military College Saint-Jean in Saint-Jean, Quebec, or any accredited program at a Canadian university. Students begin the program as Officer Cadets and receive a first-class education that balances academics, leadership, bilingualism and athletics.
