The Canadian military is one of the most highly trained and respected forces in the world. Above all, the Canadian Armed Forces values strength of character and team contributions. This means that regardless of your gender, religion or ethnicity, the Canadian Armed Forces invites you to be a part of its team and to explore the opportunities it has to offer.

The Canadian Armed Forces has also taken great strides in safeguarding the equality of women. By adopting a “no exclusion policy,” it has become one of the only militaries in the world to remove all barriers to full and equal service for all its members. This means that women have the opportunity to work any job in the Canadian Armed Forces.

41 Service Battalion is in search of applicants who are ready to be trained in the administration and payroll system as a Financial Services Administrator or Human Resources Administrator. As an Administrator, you will train as a part-time soldier and also train on human resource administration and services, financial management support services, personnel support services, and corporate and general purpose administration. Courses are conducted using an apprenticeship system, where on-the-job training as well as formatted courses are utilized. As you complete your technical training, you will advance to leadership positions which will promote you to where you will manage all facets of the operation including managing the entire administrative department. Reserve Administrators are often offered full-time positions as well (Class B) if you are available.

We are located at the Debney Armoury, 8403 Roper Road in Edmonton. Regular training is from September to May on Wednesday evenings, one Saturday a month and one weekend a month.

Not a Movie

What you see in the movies is not what the Canadian Armed Forces is. You will learn how to push yourself physically and mentally to new heights. You will learn how to work as a cohesive team to achieve assigned tasks. You will be taught basic military skills like preparing your uniform, military drill, camouflage, map & compass, service rifles, hand grenades and NATO Orders Format. You will be taught how to survive in the cold and the heat. You will learn skills specific to your Trade. You will be tested. You will be cold or tired and often both. You will learn how to instruct, mentor, lead, plan and manage. To become a “citizen soldier”, a “weekend warrior”, a Reservist, takes commitment, loyalty, training and effort. As a result, the Canadian Armed Forces is renowned for being a well-trained, effective force in domestic, humanitarian and combat operations.
