Here's mine just so people know how long things can take.

Recruting Center: Vancouver
Regular/Reserve: Reserve
Officer/NCM: NCM
Trade Choice 1: R031 (Infantry)
Trade Choice 2: n/a
Trade Choice 3: n/a
Application Date: June 05, 2003
First Contact: Sept 30, 2003 (I dropped in to the CFRC -they did not call me)
Med, aptitude completed : CFAT: October 15, 2003; Med pt. 1 Ocotber 23 2003
PT Test completed: June 30, 2004
Interview completed: October 23, 2003
Position Offered: n/a
Basic Training Begins: n/a

I failed my first PT test due to a minor injury to my wrists which affected my grip.  That was Nov. 5 2003.  I had it rescheduled for Jan 26. but they closed my file early January for a medical reason.  I dropped off the paperwork to re-open my file on April 19, and again (different paperwork) about three weeks after that.  My up-date interview and PT test were completed the 30th of June; supposedly my medical had been sent back to Borden at the end of May.

And I'm still waiting for it....

Trade Choice 2:
Trade Choice 3:
Application Date: 1rst Week Feb/04

Aptitude completed : 27th/April/04

Updates -

Interview completed: August 25th, 2004 - 2 hrs 15 mins later: "Good to Go" for trade 031
Was told by Capt. that even if my file wasn't back from Borden before PPCLI Selection Board was convened, I'd be Merit Listed "Pending Medical File's Return" & "everything would be alright..."

Mmm-Hmm...

Medical completed: September 9th, 2004 - According to Sr. Medic: "Everything A-OK" - File gone off to Borden
Spoke w/Cpl. @ Recruit Ctr to finalize file: was informed that regardless of what the Capt. had told me, according to the Cpl (who stated "She wouldn't really know anyway. She only does interviews..."), there would be NO WAY I'd be Merit Listed before proper reception of Med. file from Borden (?!). Was told such procedures used to be allowed through some kinda "higher-up's" authorization, but no more. Or not for me n-e-way... Was told next Selection Board for PPCLI was Sept. 15th, 2004 (Capt. had said Oct. 15th, 2004), negating any & all of chances of making that cut... Once again... Advised to be prepared to wait til next year (no specs. given as to exactly when).
Am now under the very distinct impression that somehow, someway all my appointments seem to be scheduled in order for me to keep missing Selection Board dates, however ridiculous that may be...
Took down all names & ranks this time: ready to raise a s**t storm if I don't get the straight facts for once, as all this "I'm right. He's wrong. He said, she said. I dunno. Can't discuss info of such nature..." crap is getting extremely redundant.

Called Capt. 3 times & left separate voicemails w/Qs & contact info. Still no word back from anyone to this day. Yup Yup...

From a professional stand-point this whole process has been amazingly ridiculous. Nothing short of it... From the actual recruiter's sales pitch to the vague and evasive aswers of the Recruitment staff, I still find myself confused.
Got me thinking that if it's so hard for these dudes to get the simplest facts straight & offer the smallest bit of help, what the hell must it be like in field, under stress, when in dire need of some real assistance (?!).

On the brighter side: Can't get a Pit to let go of the bone if he don't wanna =)
This is my career choice. My bone!

Provide me with your last name so I can isolate your file.  As 32/48/31 and previous svc in the forces I can aid your file but if you do not speak to your recruiting centre we cannot help you out.  Please ask for Det Comd during your next call/visit.  CO, Lt(N).  BTW we have instituted a new processing system and if you do not supply all the documentation requested while other applicants do, you force my hand to process other applicants before you.  See you soon, hopefully.  CO, Lt(N)

Thus far, passed everything with flying colours.  Don't know about the medical yet, as the results take a bit.  Now have to wait until March selection board..  Time to make myself more competitive...  :)

EDIT DEC 7: Nailed the ANAV test to the wall.  (Wow, is THAT harder than CFAT)  Being booked for more blood/urine work, & a cyclo (sp?) for me eyeballs.  Have to re-interview with Cpt. Maclean this week, getting there.

EDIT JAN 28: Medical back, no problems.  Will be booked on CFASC course as soon as CFRC gets the hard copy of my medical back from Borden (1-2 weeks)  Slowly but surely...  :D

Edited Nov 26, 2004 to add ANAV 031 as 2nd choice & add testing date

EDIT Mar 19: Returned from CFASC, passed.

Please older guys; dont start on this kids grammer. I know your dying to!!!

Dude, yours isn't much better...  ::)

ali:   The Canadian Forces recruiting website is probably the best place to start.   Pay particular attention to the "Basic Eligibility Requirements" section.   Here is a link to the website:   http://www.recruiting.forces.gc.ca/engraph/howtojoin/eligibility_e.aspx

Interview completed: Nov. 26th, 2004 (well, half of it)
Background check completed: pre-security clearance process since Nov. 10th, 2004
Position Offered: waiting
Swearing-in Ceremony: waiting
Basic Training Begins: waiting

Description:
After passing without problems CFAT and PT tests, I went to the interview on Nov. 24th, 2004. Hoping to go on a course in Feb.-March 2005, the recruiting officer and me talked about the job I had in Germany during the interview, discovering I hadn't been in Canada continuously in the 10 last years (I was in Germany more than 6 months).

So he began to explain me what it meant (I was damn knowing what he talked about: presec), he told me they need to ask a security clearance (kind of...) to Germany and that they can't push on them so the whold presec process would lengths from a couple of months up to 2 years. So he stopped the interview because it's only valid for 1 year and that he would not have it done completely (a redundance) since I'll have another interview after presec.

I'm down but hopeful. Hopeful that it would only take 6 months... and that I maybe have a chance to enter a course by Summer or Fall 2005. Gosh it's long and frustrating because I'm 26 now a want to plan something ahead, do I have 2 years to wait?

Good News for you (and for all PRes candidates): Once you pass the Physical and medical, there is a waiver that you can sign allowing you into the forces. What this waiver states is that if anything comes back from CFMS (Borden) that you can be expelled from the forces, without the ability to redress or recourse. The good news: 99% of all files that are approved by CFRC in the area, usually come back OK.

Good Luck.

PS: Go CSS - Weapons Techs do everything Infanteers do, plus fix weapons.

This is great news for sure! :) Now, candidates can be sworn in without having to wait a
few months(possibly) for the medical to arrive, correct?
However, a person does not know that they have passed the medical until it
arrives back from the Medical dept, do they? ???
