Posting Frustration, Part 1

I’ve titled it “Part 1” because I KNOW there are going to be more parts.

When I received The Posting Message, tried to Start the Posting Process.

I sent applied to IRP on February 21st, March 3 and March 16. This is the automated letter I have received 3 times.

Subject: Pre-registration acknowledgement/Accusé de réception – pré-inscription

A French message follows.  Un message en français suivra.

Dear Canadian Army Wife,

At this time, RLRS has not received your relocation authorization.  However, we will continue to monitor for its receipt and will advise you accordingly via email when we receive it.  If you do not receive a confirmation email within the next 5 business days, please fax your posting message with a fax cover sheet to DCBA-2 at 613-992-5079.

Please note that it can sometimes take a few days to effect the exchange of information from the originating posting authority, DCBA, and finally RLRS.  This is normal.  To avoid duplication, please do not fax DCBA in advance of the 5-day waiting period.  Your cooperation is appreciated.

If you are a member of the Reserve Force, please verify the status of your authorization through your normal Chain of Command.

If you require immediate assistance, please visit or contact your RLRS office.

Royal LePage Relocation Services
Please do not reply to this e-mail.  Mail sent to this address cannot be answered.

This is what I don’t understand: They EMAIL me the posting message, they tell me to go ONLINE to register, they send me an automated EMAIL and if that doesn’t work they want me to FAX ???

Who the heck uses a fax machine anymore? I don’t even have access to a fax machine.

I’ve forwarded this email to my hubby so he will rattle their chain of command. We want to do the DIT (destination inspection trip) when hubby comes home on his deployment “vacation” which is coming up at the end of April.

BUT we cannot get authorization to do a DIT until we’ve registered and had a first appointment with RLRS.

Again, hurry up and wait.

  1. Oh my! And I thought it was just the US military that gave us the run-around! It must just be a military thing in general. Good luck!
