CAR 404.10
404.10 ....

(2) A Category 1 or 2 medical certificate is required for an air traffic controller licence.

(3) A Category 1 or 3 medical certificate is required for the following permits, licences and ratings:

(c) private pilot licence — aeroplane or helicopter;
CAR 404.04 .....
(6) Subject to subsection (9), the validity period of a medical certificate for a permit, licence or rating that is set out in column 1 of the table to this subsection is set out in column 2 if the holder of the permit, licence or rating is under 40 years of age and in column 3 if the holder of the permit, licence or rating is 40 years of age or older.

  • Permit, licence or rating; Under 40 years of age; 40 years of age or older

    1. Private pilot licence; 60 months; 24 months

    11. Air traffic controller licence; 24 months; 12 months
So a Cat 1 is valid for an ATC license, and is valid for 24/12 months for that license.

A Cat 2 however is not valid for a PPL, but a Cat 1 is. Cat 3 or 1 for a PPL is valid for 60/24 months.

Nothing 'reverts', nothing changes.

Don't make up rules that are not written down. Keep things simple.
