For the BII at the end of October. I was just told not to expect anything until February.  :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: :waiting:

They're telling me I probably won't hear anything until February as well, But I haven't done a BII and will likely being doing a MPAC.

Congrats on the offer! I'm still waiting to hear back, hopefully soon. Anyone else get an offer?

What is your recruiting centre location?? I believe there may be disparities in getting informed of job offers because the specific branch ultimately make the call to inform you of your offer.

I for one, applied to the Hamilton recruiting branch and they haven't yet called for an offer.

Not sure who your asking but I was last to reply, I'm in Kelowna, BC. Still on competition list as of today I was told. 30 some odd positions are still available for this year apparently.

I started a new 2017/18 recruiting thread for mp, for anyone who wants to ask lots of questions and that. Any current MPs we would love for some answerers to go on and help us out a bit, even though you do already. Thanks.

No, the Branch decides who is suitable, makes a merited list, then notifies the recruiting centers of each candidate as they go down the list.  So...exceptionally attractive candidate is top of the list and gets called first.  If they are selecting 40 candidates, the first 40 on the list get notified by the recruiting center and presented an offer.  If they accept the offer, awesome.  If they don't, the recruiting center notifies the Selection pers and they move down the list to candidate 41 etc until they have 40 pers who have accepted an offer. This process takes time, it might take a week or two longer for someone farther down the list to get the call.

Ref available positions...please don't get confused as per the number of positions available "this year" and the number of positions on the course starting in Jan.  The recruiting year coincides with the fiscal year, so until end-Mar.  Those 30 positions may not be selected and filled until Feb in order to load them onto Basic in March with an eye to getting them onto the August QL3.

Does anyone know if they contact every single occupation you list on the MP reference form? Just worried they'll contact my current employer and I'd rather them now know that I'm looking at leaving for the Forces.
The military isn't really like a James Bond movie where you go for jet training in the morning and then underwater demolitions after lunch.

I recommend that you let your references know that you have them listed, because when they are contacted they will be better prepared to answer the questions of the recruiter and provide you with a better reference. This should have been done before you listed them, did they agree to be your reference?

I believe he’s referring to specific places of employment, not who he listed as a specific reference. They’re separate categories if I recall correctly, not one-in-the-same.

They did contact every previous employer I listed. They also did contact my current employer but luckily they knew I was planning on leaving and gave good reference. I was under the impression you could request they do not speak to your current employer because it could put you in a bad spot. Have a look over the forms again and see if there is a check box for that option. If not call CFRC and they will know more.

The CFRC may give you an option not to have your current employer called for a reference check but the MPs do not.

Every MP applicant who moves on to the background check phase has a thorough background done and your current and previous employers WILL be contacted.  No exceptions.

I got my OJE reading assignment package with tons of documents to learn. I am having trouble finding MPPTPs and the MP Gp Orders. Are these available on DWAN for any member to access or do you need special permissions?

MPPTP's for the most part are obsolete and have been superceded by the MP Gp Orders, however the Group Orders SharePoint requires that you apply for access via DWAN in order to read them.

Technically everyone in the CF MP Gp is supposed to be wearing it as we belong to the VCDS Gp. In reality I don’t think it has made its way outside the NCR yet.

At the CF PM Change of Command parade the guard was wearing MP badges in the place of command badges

They were wearing MP badges on the right pocket where the command badge is supposed to go? It’s supposed to be worn on the left off of a hanger off the button. Wouldn’t be surprised if “someone” just did what they wanted.
