About the Integrated Relocation Program (IRP)

Background
The Federal Government Integrated Relocation Program is a unique program that provides government entities which include the Government of Canada, the Canadian Forces and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police with increased flexibility and assistance to relocate Members/Employees to new work locations.

Objective
The IRP aims to make relocation easy and efficient, centralizing the administration of a relocation with a single contractor, BGRS, with the exception of physical removal of Household Goods and Effects, administered under the Household Goods and Services Removal contract.

How It Works
Government entities authorize their employees to relocate. BGRS administers their relocation according to one of 3 different directives/policies:

Canadian Forces IRP Directive
Royal Canadian Mounted Police IRP Policy
National Joint Council IRP Directive
