As the title says "I just got selected" but cuz i was busy i didn't see it on time and couldn't get a few simple questions answered. So i'll ask here and seeif you kind folk can help. ;)

1. When "selected" are you given sufficient time to get your "$hit" together (2 months) or thrown to the wolves right away? Shape wise & family wise i'm good but i'm a busy man around here (golf course and i split, stack & cut trees) and just can't say "c'ya". I applied in October and found out today...so...a month or two would be nice but if i have to drop everything i will.

2. Are you allowed (i'm lucky i'm not too far from the base in MTL) to visit the base once selected? Before i did my iron workers course at local 711 i did a "stage" on the different aspects at the school. Is this permitted here? I'm the kind of man that likes to know what he's getting himself into.

Alright. Thats all i got for now. Hopefully i can get some feedback.

Also, the "recruiting councillor" also said that the trade I chose "boatswain" was to be decided by the 19th of April.

An upper case 'I' makes a post look much more attractive when used where applicable. Proper punctuation and grammar makes one's words easier to read, promotes professionalism and I encourage you to do so in future posts. Thank you & welcome.

Application Date: November 27th, 2015

Aptitude Test: January 19th, 2016
I attended university in the USA so I have been waiting for an approval from the chain of command stating whether or not I will need additional screening due to living there while attending school.
I also had to obtain my Educational Assesment that proves my Masters and Bachelor degree from the USA is equivalent to the Canadian degrees.  I first paid and applied for a comprehensive report fro ICAS but that was taking forever (22 weeks from February 11th) . I had to ensure I got a full report as I was trying to get an Educational Waiver so I could apply to be a Construction Engineer with an Architecture background.
I decided to go a different route and switched my Trade Choices in late March

Yeah I applied about a month after two of my high school buddies and they still haven't gotten  an offer, I guess they want Artillerymen. Or perhaps they didn't score that well.

I sent my local CFRC a email last week after two months of inactivity on my file. The following day I received a email from them telling me I needed to attend a Pre-Security interview. Coming out of the pre-assessment, I think this is probably going to be a Reliability interview and they will decide if they go through a full-blown pre-security clearance. It is just not clear why they asked me to gather information on my selected trades, as if that was also going to be a job interview. It also took 6 months after the CFAT before they scheduled this interview, which leads me to think this could be my "final" pre-security interview.

Hey Congrats!!!!

Wow, I have been waiting for about 19 months as well;


alas I was not selected in the most recent selection (5 July - MARS and LogO selection)


and I think it concludes my application process.


I am not hoping to hear anything from CFRC. Beside life keeps going and I have to give up on my dream of being a member of CF. I guess it is one of the first major defeats in life that hopefully will make me a bit more resilient.


Good luck for everyone else though!

It took me almost 3 yrs to get in, and ultimately, not the trade I initially believed I wanted and failed to obtain. I wouldn't be ready to throw in the towel just yet. Get in touch with your recruiter/CFRC and ask about your options. Ask about possibly trying for another trade. If you want it, there's always a way to get it...maybe not in the manner and/or time frame you had planned, but there's always a way.
