ast year, the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) introduced the Canadian Forces Housing Differential (CFHD), which replaced the Post Living Differential (PLD). CFHD is a monthly payment designed to help CAF members secure suitable housing across Canada. CFHD rates are adjusted annually to reflect the economic situation and vary based on location and salary.

This year, 24 locations are seeing a rate increase greater than 10%.

The updated CFHD rates will be effective on 1 July 2024 and are now live. Eligible CAF members who have not previously applied for CFHD are encouraged to do so now. If you have already registered, you do not have to re-apply unless you have relocated.
