Intelligence Operators collect information from various sources to support operations, planning and decision-making for the Canadian Armed Forces and the Government of Canada. They start at a daily rate of pay of 124.40 and with allowances will earn over 17K for this May-Aug summer. Typically, Reserve Force members continue to work and train with their home unit for one evening per week and two weekends per month, from September to April of each year. Intelligence Operators work in a highly secure environment with restricted access, handling extremely sensitive information. At 21 Electronic Warfare Regiment initial training will center on common military skills followed by specialization in tactical Electronic Warfare. After completing basic training, additional soldier, driver and communications skills, candidates will be trained in tactical, operational, and strategic analysis, counter-intelligence, electronic warfare, psychological operations or one of several other highly specialized fields.

Candidates must be Canadian Citizens or Permanent Residents between 16 and 53 who are prepared to undergo both physical and classroom training. Specialty training is delivered in a pattern easily matched to the availability of post secondary and senior high school students. Workers in the gig economy, those whom are underemployed or are between positions have all been successful on an ongoing basis with this mixed part and full time position. Not all training must occur during summer blocks.

Successful candidates once they have completed training will be eligible to apply for positions at home or deployments abroad, may transfer to the regular force full time or take their skills to other positions. Information sessions are held weekly (currently online only) and 1:1 sessions are held to follow up after the general information session at the start of your application.
