The government has announced that Royal Canadian Mounted Police Civilian Members will join the federal public service on May 21, 2020. The ‘deeming’ of RCMP CMs was initially scheduled for April, 2018 but was delayed because of ongoing problems with the Phoenix pay system. Acting RCMP Commissioner Daniel Dubeau believes the new deeming date will allow the government to stabilize Phoenix before RCMP CMs join the federal public service.

As many as one in three PSAC members affected by Phoenix have incurred out-of-pocket expenses. When the Phoenix nightmare began, one of the first things PSAC did was secure a claims process for expenses incurred because of inaccurate pay. We encourage our members to claim these expenses. There is no deadline for submitting these claims. If you incurred expenses due to a pay problem in 2016 or 2017, you are still eligible to file. What is covered?
