Where are you coming in from?

I'm in Ottawa. I'm finishing up my two weeks of work as a structural engineer. I'm also going to ramp up my training this month in preparation. Crossfit, running and lots of push-ups and sit-ups.

So I'm assuming we'll be a platoon of mostly DEO applicants, right? That should make things interesting.

I find as time passes by I'm getting more and more excited about this. I was really hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst.

Swear in date etc finally set  with my RC-   arriving August 24th in St. Jean 

I'm hoping for the best, planning for the best, and preparing to do my best :) 

Quite the opportunity.

Does anyone know when we will receive our first paycheck? Will it be August 30th (since 31st is a Saturday)? or do you figure we'll get paid on September 13th (since 15th is a Sunday).

Maybe I'll PM DAA about it if no one knows here.

You will get your money direct to your account.Don't forget to bring VOID check from your bank.
First payment can be after September 15th because we can not  do all paperwork before August 30th.

Just got my email and joining instructions today although the offer came in almost two weeks ago now. I am sure you will get yours pronto. Maybe call them if its getting close to your swearing in date and ask. I still don't know anything about storage but at least have BMOQ instructions for now and tentative departure date, although it keeps changing :p

I got it emailed to me, its one we filled out before I believe. Form 330-60 is what we need to bring with us, mind you I also had a call from my RC and they wanted a new 330-23 as well.

What is everyone bringing for clothes for those first couple days? Jeans and polo? That's what I was thinking of wearing.

The joining instructions say casual dress pants and casual dress collared shirts so I'm bringing black pants and dress shirts. I'll probably pack a pair of jeans for when we get weekends off later on in the course.

I read that too. The reason I bring it up is because I've read on this site somewhere that people who were over-dressed in those first couple days wished they had just worn jeans and a polo like other people. But I don't recall whether it was people talking about BMQ or BMOQ.

Also, I swear in tomorrow. I'm very excited for this!

Join the club!

Honestly, bring a pair of dress pants and a few shirts. Bring jeans too ... and some comfy polo's or something. I'm sure you will get some time to change if it comes down to us being overdressed. Just do your best to following the joining instructions to a T.

Hey, out of curiosity, which joining instructions are you reading? The link with the Candidate Information Booklet provided to me is dated July 2012.  Consult page 6, it doesn't specify dress clothing but COMFORTABLE clothes. 

Just want to make sure i'm reading the most recent+ accurate material.
