  Master Corporal (person)@Everything2.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
The rank of master corporal is the highest junior NCO rank in the Canadian Armed Forces, and is one of the few ranks that is unique to the Canadian Army.
Master corporals may only be addressed as "master corporal." Not "master" and certainly not "corporal." (Privates and corporals have been known to use the term "masterjack" when referring to master corporals.) In the Royal Canadian Navy, the equivalent rank is "master seaman" (insert clever joke here), which may be abbreviated to "MS".
In order to reach the rank of master corporal, a soldier must pass his or her first level of leadership training, as this is the first rank where it is expected that said soldier will be in direct command of other soldiers.

  Master Corporal - www.canadiansoldiers.com
Eventually, corporals who had passed the "B" phase of their leadership training took to wearing a crown over their chevrons, and this arrangement was eventually formalized by having a maple leaf replace the crown, and the new "B" Corporals", as they were known, became Master Corporals.
In an infantry section, this rank equated to a pre-unification Lance Corporal in terms of responsiblities, though is similar to the pre-unification Corporal in that formal leadership training was required for promotion to that level.
The general requirements for promotion to Master Corporal included Trade Qualification Level 2 (later Qualification Level 5), a junior leadership course (variously known as Junior Leader's Course (a generic course) or Infantry Section Commander's Course (ISCC)), and a time in the rank of Corporal for a minimum of two years.

Eventually, corporals who had passed the "B" phase of their leadership training took to wearing a crown over their chevrons, and this arrangement was eventually formalized by having a maple leaf replace the crown, and the new "'B' Corporals", as they were known, became Master Corporals.
Given the structure of the Canadian infantry platoon, the MCpl is roughly equivalent to the British rank of lance corporal and therefore, second in command of an infantry section.
The general requirements for promotion to Master Corporal include a Qualification Level 5 course, a primary leadership qualification course (PLQ), and a time in the rank of Corporal for a minimum of two years.
