That's why there is a screening process.

The questionnaires are screened by the Recruit Medical Office - they're looked over and if there are things that concern them, the applicant concerned either receives a request for more medical information or to attend a full, formal medical exam.

Ok thanx

i was thinking of something else went i saw screening process that as nothing to do
with medical

I'm 46y.o. for the reserve i did my medical in april,
Ottawa got it the may 4,
the may 8 they wrote need more info (or something like that)
and never send nothing at this time !

The recruiter in Montréal was so pissoff of that and told me that happens very offen

What kind of paper work will they send me ?
What they want to check, because on the questionnaire i wrote nothing was wrong
don't take any medication, everything is find between my 2 ears, but had surgery on a finger un 1986
and a broken finger (the same lollll) in 2006.
I'm not worry i'm just asking to what will be next step.

Thank you MM

You'll likely get a letter with a form to be filled out by your family doc regarding whatever condition(s) they're concerned about.  Doc fills it out and you fire it back.

Good evening,

I filled in my medical questionnaire for reserve and completed only medical 1, as mentioned previously.

After calling my CFRC, it seems my file has been transferred to the RMO because they need further information. Does this mean I am going to receive a letter requiring more information? Or can it be that the RMO clears my file? I am 32 yo.

I don't really see why they would need more info according to the questionnaire... Only thing is I don't remember my titanus vaccination...

If you check yes to any of the crash or emergency landing questions*, they want more information (mental health, past surgeries, sports injuries, etc).  If there is an issue with your vision or hearing screening, they'll want more information.  If you're overweight, they're going to want more information.  I think you get where I'm going...and why I thought this was a mentally challenged idea in the first place.

*Automatic or potential disqualifiers where a family/specialist doctor's form and letter are required.

If you are asking about the Enrolment Medical Screening that is part of the new (1 Apr 17) Expedited Reserve Enrolment (ERE) process it is straightforward. There are two parts:

1. A medical history questionnaire
2. A medical screening that will assess your Vision, Colour Vision, Hearing, Height, Weight and Blood Pressure. And only that. No physical exam.

If you are joining a Reserve unit that is directly supported by a Health Services Reserve Field Ambulance the Questionnaire and Screening will be done together and both of those are sent to the Recruiting Medical Office in Ottawa for review. In some locations the screening is still done in the recruiting centre. If all is good you can be enrolled.

If you are joining a Reserve unit that is not directly supported by a Health Services Reserve Field Ambulance you will complete the Questionnaire only and give it back to the unit recruiter sealed in an envelope provided. They will send it to the RMO for review. If all is good you can be enrolled BUT you will still have the medical screening (#2 above) no later than the first day of your BMQ/BMOQ course.

The RMO is able to provide a FIT / UNFIT / Need more INFO decision within about five days of receiving the form(s). If there is any need for more medical information you will be advised AND you will not be part of the ERE any longer. Your enrolment will be delayed until the needed information is received and reviewed by the RMO and a final FIT / UNFIT decision is made.

The number 1 reason for delays at the RMO is incorrectly completed forms. Make sure your questionnaire has your Service Number, your Date of Birth, the occupation you are applying for (MOSID) and make sure you sign the form with a witness. Ask your Recruiter for help if you don't know your Service Number or MOSID.

Hope that helps!

Are applicants/enrollees given a medical category?  Specifically G and O factors.

Quick update: I filled in my medical questionnaire, put it in a sealed envelope, and gave it to my recruiter in May.

My file shows it has been received. There is a note in my file, dated June 1st, saying "more information needed". Since then, my file is blocked. I have not received any letter. I am disappointed not to have had the opportunity to take Medical 2 to see a doctor in person. I have completed all the other steps (FORCE test, CFAT, interview). I guess I will have to wait...

Same for me here, and a went to the recruting center last week to see what was happening whit my recruting step, and the sergent  told me me there is a big lag at the medecine bureau in Ottawa, it's the second time i'm asking what was happening with my file (first time june 14) and he ask me if i want to complaint and this will force the chain commandement to answer to my complaint, i told the serg. that i was not there yet but i will in september.

I was hoping to start in my unit in september, but i don't think i will be in by next month.....

The FR has supposily faster entry now, but it's not the case for me, i hope it will go fast after i receive that letter for medical 2 !!!!

Hi there everyone, I made this account a while back to ask some questions about joining the reserves and I got some really useful answers, and I've been browsing the forums for a while trying to soak up everything I could find before I turned of age to join. Anyways I ended up applying online for the artillery (changed my mind from armour) and I realized that the forces.ca website said that this trade was in demand. I was wondering if this will have an impact on my recruiting process in anyway, positive or negative? Also I emailed an officer from the unit I was applying to and he told me to hurry up with my application as he said he wanted to try to get me in for "testing" on September 30? Does anyone know what this can mean and if it's a good sign? Thanks for your time!

The reserves are attempting to complete an expediated recruiting process in under 30 days. You'll do basic screening and CFAT with a more stringent medical to follow which will allow you to stay in. If they would like you to come in, they have spots open. Typically the "in demand" on the website is more Regular Force trades. Your local unit has control in simple terms on how many spots they have open.

Thanks for the quick reply, it was really helpful! Also for this sped up process, have there been any other significant changes other than what you said that'll have any affect on my application?
