My references have been contacted . Does this mean that my background/security check has been completed or is it a two part process? Thanks

Good day ShawnCameron,

Welcome to the “Ask a CAF Recruiter” section. The members tagged as “CAF Recruiter” are official Canadian Armed Forces recruiters. They will identify themselves with their rank, first name and the Forces.ca avatar. In order to best answer questions, there are some rules that need to be adhered to.

This section is for persons who have questions about joining the Canadian Armed Forces, occupations, different enrolment programs, and prerequisites. Much of the information can be found at Forces.ca, or the Recruiting FAQ and wiki section of this site. Before you ask a question, you should be searching the forum or the Forces.ca website for these answers.

We will not answer questions about technical difficulties with the application process, or the website. We will not answer questions about difficulties contacting your recruiting centre or general inquires with regards to your current application or file. These questions can be asked here: http://forces.ca/en/page/contactus-73

ShawnCameron I recommend that you maintain contact with the recruiting centre processing your application in accordance with the "Submitted application whats next?" post. I have provided a link to this post below:

After my interview I was told there are still several checks that need to be done, including calling references...since then it's been a month and a half, which seems to be the norm for a lot of other people as far as I can tell...you might be in for a wait after your appointment, but they'll let you know then.

Lol!! I saw that too, thought - "Wow, and all I get are these Defence Update emails..."

Maybe my background check needs to be redone?

Haha... lay-people!

Don't sweat it.  When you get out after twenty/twenty-five plus years, you will get a nice certificate from him/her.  If you are really lucky it will be framed, but there are no guarantees that there will be money in the Budget for that.

Regular.

If that's the case, then your background checks are not normally started until after your Medical has been approved and then file has been returned to your CFRC.

Yes, employment history is part of the background check.  So if your references are indicating that they are or have been contacted, then chances are your checks have already started.

I am not too sure why you want to know when your references will be called or your credit will be checked, but at this point, there isn't much you can do to expedite the process.  I suggest you sit back, call bi-weekly for updates at the recruiting center and let the process work for you.

Thanks for the answer DAA. Yea as Anira09 mentioned I'm just curious as well because I've yet to redo my interview and medical. I guess it's good though since something is getting done contributing to the application process.

Question regarding DND Personal Data Verification
« Reply #45 on: April 20, 2016, 19:37:33 »
Just completing my DND personal data verification form and had a question regarding the employment history section. It states that "You can advise us not to conduct a check of your employment background only if it pertains to your current employer(s)

Im in a situation where I kinda don't want my current employer to know Im applying for the Forces. Not because I don't want my current employer called by the Forces or anything...I am totally confident I'd be spoken of positively by my current employer. Its a personal issue that I don't want to discuss on a public forum so we'll leave it at that.

Anyways..that being said am I able to advise the Forces not to do conduct a check on my employment background with my current employer for that reason?

The first five threads have now been merged into this one.

Drew Grey - Does the form limit you to specific reasons only, or even request reasons?

Well, considering there is actually a question "If current employer, may we contact?" Yes   No   Not Applicable

I would check "No" and move on...

Take a closer look at your PDV Form, specifically the very first page where you will see......

"For your employment history, all your previous employer(s) will be contacted; you can advise us not to conduct a check of your employment background only if it is pertains to your current employer(s)."
