Curious did anyone from Western Canada receive confirmation they would be attending the MPAC on Feb 17-18?

If your in western Canada be prepared to be dead last for being called to MPAC. A few guys on my QL3 here are from BC and like me where called last minute. Don't lose faith yet, just be patient. That's my best advice for the MP application.

Did you guys notice that MPAC is only a 2hr interview?

Interesting, seems like some people are getting a 2hr interview and others are going for 2 days at Borden...

Hello,

I'm new here but have been following this sub section for the last 4-5 months. I applied to the military police position back in July 2017 approx. I finished my Interview and Medical here at new westminster recruiting center in Vancouver back in November. I'm just curious what everyone's timeline looks like from start of the application to finish. Last I heard was today asking for a updated address to my drivers license. What would typically be the next step if everything goes well?

Edit- I forgot to mention when they interviewed me asking where I like to be placed I'd mentioned airforce. Is there normally a choice which province/base you'd be stationed? I prefer to be close to Vancouver e.g Comox, Victoria etc. and I know there is a possibility of deployment however I'm curious to know if I could live and work close to family.

Any help is much appreciated.

You will be posted where the CF needs you, you have the option of picking where you'd LIKE to go but inevitably it is where they need you. Your element has no bearing on where you're posted in any purple trade in the CF. Search the forums, all these questions have been answered multiple times before...good luck.

Hey guys, long time reader. Just looking to see if anyone has an idea on how long it takes for an offer to trickle down from the selection board to the local CFRC? With a selection coming up on the 14th, I'm just curious on how soon I could hear something if successful. Also, anyone know whether the Aug. QL3 is full yet? Ideally I do BMQ this spring, maybe SQ and then hop on the Aug. QL3 and not have to sit on PAT for 6 months.

It can take anywhere from a few days to a few months to never, depending on where you place on the ranking list.  Very attractive candidates get the call first, borderline ones sit and wait.

All the recruiting activity going on for people in the final stages is to line them up for the August courses, so yes, ideally it would be a quick notification, then BMQ, BMQ-L, brief stint on OJE somewhere (probably near where you were recruited) then the August start for QL3 with you on the road in January 2019.

Thanks for the quick reply Garb. With the newly revised MPAC kicking off mid month, I wonder how many people are left on the selection list. Any one have any ideas on the remaining positions for the 2017 fiscal year?

Don't get wrapped up about the numbers left for FY 2017 (particularly since 2018 numbers are just around the corner as well), concentrate on being the most attractive candidate out there.  Be the best candidate and it doesn't matter if there are 10 positions, tank the process and it doesn't matter if there are 1000...

I know people want to try to figure out their odds but there are more important things to focus on.

Got some great news today!  I'm in on the MPAC on the 18th Feb, Like a couple of posts back I did notice they're still doing the BII at this MPAC.  Super Stoked! Now lets hope I merit high enough to be selected this year. Woot Woot!

There was quite a few name on the list, 45 or so! it'll be nice to meet some of the new candidates and some of the VOTs like myself.

So not one Reg F candidate did their BMQ-L before our QL3. I think most are going right after course or at least before QL5, they haven't heard anything about it yet. Luckily I did it back in my PRes days and it's still valid so I'm in the clear. Also, some did OJE for 3 days, others for a couple weeks. Then again they had the Christmas break in between basic and QL3 so that could be why they didn't do the BMQ-L. But yah like garb said, you'll be loaded on the August QL3 if your selected from this feb MPAC. My offer came December 23 and I did BII on October 23.

I got invited today to attend a MP BII on Feb 17th as a last minute replacement. I'm in Vancouver and flying out on the 16th. I understand it's a interview  but can anyone provide any details what it means?

See you both at MPOAC tomorrow @armyhopeful1993 and @FRSQRN; waited a year and a half for this cause my CFRC lost my medical forms and my interview expired the same month as the last MPOAC in November

I have no reason to be nervous about them asking about my past...  Put I tell you, I'm more nervous than a long tailed cat in a room full of racking chairs.  But I think it's more so that this is basically starting my military career from the beginning all over again. The unexpected, they can rip my past apart i don't care lol.

How did the interviews on the 18th go for everyone? Did they give you an idea of when you should hear back from them?

Mine went well yesterday.

No indication of when i'll hear back, for me being an occupational transfer though it has to go to my Career Manager first to approve me leaving my trade.

Mine went good. A few things that tripped me up but all and all it was good. I was told they would be done all the assessments in 4 weeks but couldn’t even give me an estimate to when I would hear anything. I’m assuming if it goes past the August course I’m SOL for the year.

Does anyone know of the numbers they are looking to recruit for the fiscal year? Also how many are usually in a course?
