Civilian Job Protection for Military Reservists
Premier Christy Clark has announced expanded job-protection leave for Canadian Military Reserve Forces in BC. Clark says this will allow reserve members to take unpaid leave from their civilian jobs for up to 20 days per year for training activities.  Lieutenant David Myles says this gives members of the reserve more job security. He says before people would take their own holidays or leaves of absence to go away for training. Myles explains some of the courses are 2-4 weeks or longer in length. He says it’s it’s great knowing that you can go away on these courses and know you will still have your job when you get home. Changes made by the Premier take effect immediately.
