****************************************
I thought I would post this on a couple forums that I visit related to the Canadian Forces.

I am sure that I am not the only one interested in this info as I see posts all the time asking "how long does it take?".

I thought I‘ld post my application process as it proceeds and invite others to do so. As well as those who have completed the process.

All I ask is the following:

- try to follow a standard format to make it easier to read for others

- edit your post to update the info rather than adding more posts

- limit posts in this thread to related content (please limit discussions to keep thread size down)

- not all info is needed only provide that which you are comfortable giving

Post format could be something like:

Recruting Center: Edmonton
Regular/Reserve: Regular(great addition by a user on another forum and good to know)
Officer/NCM: NCM(Another good idea from a user of this forum}
Trade Choice 1: LCIS TECH 227
Trade Choice 2: SIG OPS 215
Trade Choice 3: ATIS 226
Application Date: June 19, 2003
First Contact: June 21, 2003
Med, aptitude completed : July 25 for July 31
PT Test completed: Aug 8, 2003
Interview completed: Aug 14, 2003
Position Offered: Sept 11, 2003
Basic Training Begins: Sept 30, 2003

Thanks all and I look forward to seeing how the rest of those hurrying up to wait are faring in the process.

Good Luck to all other applicants.

Dylan

Update April 1st, 2004 My security clearance is being processed now. Since I have been out of the country, it could take anywhere from 3-18 months. Guess I will get another research job while I wait. Sigh. Academics. The love hate relationship.

Update, Jan. 7, 2005 Security clearance has been cleared. It took a long 8 months, and I am pretty happy to finally be moving on.

Update Feb 22, 2005 Changed my trade choices, and under the advice of my career advisor I added a fourth choice. Engineer Officer and Armoured have very few positions open this coming selection board (less than 15 positions each), and the odds of me being picked are unclear. Infantry and Signals have lots of positions open, so I should get picked if I am beat out by the competition in the first two trades. I neglected to update, but my interview went really well. My medical is currently in Borden being processed, should hear back sometime in March.

Update March 1, 2005 Medical file came back from Borden, no problems. The only hurdle left is the selection board.
