Thanks for the update. I'm really curious on what this means though and what the new process entails. Hope more info gets released soon.  [:D

Hi Brazeaud!

When I asked my recruiter about it earlier this week, she didn't have any information about the next MPOAC date for MPO applicants, but she didn't tell me about this MP Selection Processing either. Maybe I asked her too soon and she received the information later this week, but I don't want to bother her with and endless tide of questions. Do you happen to know if the MPO trade is affected by this change too, by any chance? ;)

Thanks!

Hey pyro,

Not sure if this applies to the MPO trade as well.

I received the email on Thursday and the recuirter said once they have information they are emailing all the MP applicants

Allright! Just like everyone else, I'll have to wait anyway, so it's really not a big deal. I was just being curious.  ;)

Thanks Brazeaud, and good luck!

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.

The new process has a couple of kinks which are being worked through.  The initial priority was to get the BIIs done on all CT/OT pers to line them up for the QL3 starting in late summer.  Next up is to work through the Direct Entry files in order to line them up for BMQ in the fall with a QL3 start date in mid-Jan.

Just be patient, particularly if you are in the Kingston/Toronto/Hamilton/London/Windsor areas, as that is where the majority of the remaining files are.

Thank you garb811.

Since the process has changed, many people have lots of questions.

I am also awaiting and hope to make the selection.

Not a problem, the changes aren't really fully understood across the CF MP Gp yet either.  The changes to candidate assessment are a trial run and will be re-evaluated after about a year.  At that point we could go back to full-blown MPAC/MPOACs, keep the changes or do something else entirely.

Obviously the biggest change is you don't travel to MPAC, the interviewer comes to you (unless you are geographically near a Base with an assessor) and the only thing remaining out of the "in person" MPAC/MPOAC process is the BII, so any of the open source documentation floating around related to the MPAC/MPOAC and what goes on is no longer valid.

They are ongoing across Canada as I type, including the Maritimes, it's just that area of the country that is the biggest hiccup.

I am sorry for my lack of knowledge with the abbreviations but what do you mean by BII?

Hi garb811,

After more than three months, I still have no news of the selection process. Is the said process ongoing for the MPO trade, or are they waiting?

Thanks a lot!

Unfortunately the priority is the NCM files at the moment because, unfortunately, the timeline for getting someone through BMOQ and BMOQ-L for the next MPO course in Jan is pretty tight if you don't already have a date for BMOQ.

The interviews are happening across Canada concurrently as there are interviewers at most Bases.  They have a list of candidates they are assigned to interview and go from there.

I have my medical and interview coming up soon, but a company based in Montreal acting on behalf of the CF appears to be conducting a background investigation as they have contacted numerous employers and references. Is this a new stage?

No, it is the same Reliability check that is done on all CAF applicants.

Mpac and previous arrest ?
« Reply #496 on: March 27, 2018, 18:18:26 »
Hello everyone ; I’m currently serving with the reserve force as a military police member in the Winnipeg area. I have approximately 1 year left in my criminal justice degree before I request a CT to reg force mp.

However I have had a drivers suspension approximately 2 years ago including
- wreckless driving ( flooring vehicle :( )

- 130 in a 100 zone

- 3 at fault accidents

9 month suspension.

I have been clean for 2 years now , I will be buying back 2 claims resulting in two at fault accidents being erased from my abstract.


I have also received a charge related to assault with a weapon approx 3 years ago, I was attacked in my sleep by an ex and hit her with a stick. Yes LoL a stick and put a small bruise on her arm this resulted in a non conviction and did not even make it to court. It was a bs charge and the person who charged me called the police and told them they completely lied and attacked me in my sleep prior to me defending myself resulting in a stay of proceedings.


Can anyone please advise if this is a problem for military police recruiting? The CFRC mentioned it MAY be a problem, however I am still quite unsure.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Should I pursue another occupation in the military if this is problematic.


I have received a reg force infantry offer after this incident , but decided to pursue reserve force instead if this helps.

End of the day, there is only one way to get the definitive answer and that is to go through the process and see what the results are.

What I will say is, take a look at it from the side of someone looking at you as a potential MP.  Give it a shot but be prepared.

You would be surprised who the MP take.  More than 75%+ who apply get in (ball park estimate).  If you want to know the specific numbers of how many applied and how many were successful just do an access to information, very easy to do.  The standard to get into the MP is much lower than the civilian police side as most major city services will take in about 10% of applicants.  Civi side gets the cream of the crop and MP get everyone else who wanted to be a civi cop but didn't or couldn't.  There are of course some exceptions but most would fall into that category in my opinion.  As a reserve MP you may or may not have to do the MPAC or whatever they call it these days.  Can't say for sure though. 

The MP can be a good experience to do some interesting jobs and get some work experience but your policing experience will be very limited in nature and your chain of command will not likely have a tremendous amount of actual policing experience.  Again, there are some exceptions but generally speaking that's how it goes.  The MP branch as a whole doesn't really have alot of policing knowledge as the members are too mobile and the call volume is too low to really get the police experience.  In my opinion this prevents the MP from being effective as a branch of the military that conducts policing duties.  Not anyone's fault its just the way things are when you give limited and highly restrictive police duties to what should really be a security only branch.  I'm not putting the MP down but that is just the reality of how things are. 

I would just apply and see what happens.  They will have mandatory timelines that would have had to elapse for specific types of driving offences.  I don't know what those are but it may or may not be accessible through access to information.  The non-conviction shouldn't be an issue as long as you explain it.

Not all wrong here for sure, however, depending on what base your on you can be very busy in terms of policing. You go to any of the combat arms bases such as Edmonton, Petawawa, or Valcartier, you’ll stay pretty busy as an MP. There are a plethora of different branches you can go into with the MP trade which is nice like CP, NIS, MPSS those kinds of things if that’s what your into. But yah we definitely do have bases that our very slow in terms of policing. All depends on how proactive you are as well. In regard to him being a reserve MP, he will still have to do a BII before completing a CT.

Also, Jitterbug, I find your comment about MP getting the civi cop rejects unfair. Sure in some case that may be true, however, even in my case I wanted to join the MP from the start because of how fast one can move up in the trade in regards to specialization. Also, the fact that we can get tours is an excellent aspect as well. There are a lot of MP that I know that haven’t tried out for other police forces. So I find your statement to not be entirely true.
