Thank you for your response.

Just to clarify, medical officers looking at an applicants medical file cannot contact civilian physicians about said applicant. Or won't.

If Medical officer required an additional form or forms to be filled by your family doctor, may be they contact the family doctor for verifying the information or to ask other questions.
But they never disclose your information to any other party.

Hi Buck,


I'm not sure if you can answer this but do you know when ROTP selections end? Because of a medication I was on, I wont be medically cleared until May 13 and I'm worried there won't be any spots left for my chosen trade (infantry officer, civvy U applicant) by then.

Hi buck,

Just wondering how long 17/18 spots remaining can be open in the 18/19 fidcal year. Meaning can they still be spots in july for 17-18? Or at some points they get erased!

As always, thanks a lot

For 17/18 positions you must be enrolled by 31-March; although you might not start training until later in the year.  This year 31-March is a Saturday and 30-March is Good Friday (a stat); so the last day to enrol for FY 17/18 is 29-March.
It's not that the positions get "erased"; it's that anything left unfilled is just that, unfilled - then the CAF starts working on 18/19 intake numbers.

Hey buck,

I got i call today from montreal recrutement offering me a job until the next french bmoq in august (because apparently the one in may as no entry). I have found no info online on type on duty/pay rate etc. Was wondering if anybody knew of that type of offer.

Thanks a lot

That can happen at times.  The rate of pay will be in your ETP (Enrolment / Transfer Posting) Message.  Ask your recruiter what the rate of pay is, they are your best and most accurate source of information.  Reason for this is that some officers are given time credit towards pay based on whether they have a "normal" degree, honours degree, post-graduate degree. 

I heard there was a selection yesterday May 19 but I didn't think they'd call successful candidates this quickly; i thought it would take another 8-10 days from selection to job offer. If the August BMOQ is instructed in French, are the two serials in May instructed in English? Or are the May serials no entry because they are all filled up? Can you please clarify these too Buck, thank you very much.
There are actually 3 serials in May, 2 are in English and 1 is in French.  The French serial is full, and one of the two English serials is full.

Is that what the F's and E's stand for in the serial number? :oA little hopeful for that May 7th BMOQ. I expect we'll be hearing some people getting their calls in the next few days to be loaded into that serial. Best of luck guys! :D
Both the French and English 7 May serial are full.  The 14 May English serial still has spots as of today.

In regards to the May 7th BMOQ, just judging by the length of the course ( 2 months vs the typical 3), I am willing to bet that these 2 serials are specific to students attending RMC. They typically complete their course in 2 phases spread over a couple of summers.

Can’t confirm this but it would fall in line with what typically happens every summer.

Look closer at the dates: 7-May to 27-Jul is 10 weeks; 14-May to 3-Aug is also 10 weeks.  BMOQ is now 10 weeks (2.5 months in duration).
If it were for RMC Students it would be labelled as BMOQ MOD 1 & MOQ MOD 2... :-)

Can anyone clarify what's going on with the May 7th BMOQs and why people are being slotted into later ones?
There are no spots remaining on the 7 May BMOQ; people are being loaded on later serials.  When the 14-May serial fills up people will be loaded on later serials yet again.

Thank you for your response.

Unless you've signed a Consent to Release Information, Military Physicians cannot speak to your Civilian Doctors; this is protected information.  Depending on your province is depending under which act, but for Ontario for example it's PHIPPA (Personal Health Information Protection Act).

Last year the campaign officially ended on 30-June.  I don't work on the ROTP team and the ROTP entry plan isn't one of the eligible entry plans for the occupations that I recruit for; so I'm not sure when the campaign is officially slated to close this year; I would suggest asking your Recruiter.

My file was just put on the competition list as of yesterday morning for ARMD Officer. What are my chances of being called for one of the 2017/18 remaining positions? Last I checked there were 4 left and more opening for 2018/19.

Just wondering when the next selection date is approximately for AEC DEO. I understand it could be monthly. Also is it possible to find out how many individuals are on the merit list?

Hi Buck,

Concerning your statement that "for fiscal year 17/18 positions, you must be enrolled by 31-March; although you might not start training until later in the year. This year 31-March is a Saturday and 30-March is Good Friday (a stat); so the last day to enrol for FY 17/18 is 29-March". Personally, I have not received an offer yet and assuming that there is a selection for DEO Construction Engineering today (March 28) or tomorrow (March 29), that these positions will fill the available spots for the FY 18/19 and not FY 17/18 since there is no way for me to enroll or "swear in" before March 29 due to the time it takes to transfer the information from the selection boards to my local CFRC. Essentially, I am nit-picking at the definitions of "enroll" and "selected". Are these two terms used interchangeably? I am asking because in my mind and under my assumption with the example I have provided, I am using the terms "enroll" and "swearing-in" during the swearing-in ceremony interchangeably. Please confirm and clarify.

Thanks,
wnhan

Hi Buck.

I was wondering how many DEO positions remain for EME for 17/18 and when can I expect the positions to disappear. Currently have that as my only listed trade and plan to add more once the positions run out for 17/18.

Also my medical was done 14 months ago and I was wondering if it affected my position on the competition list. I'm under the impression it needs to be done annually. I haven't recieved any replies from my CFRC or emails requesting updates.

Thanks,

I have similar questions, 1) If an individual selected on 28th (today) he or she will know by 29th?
2) "The left over positions" is very common in Canada force hiring or usually they always fulfill it by March 31st.
Please let us know.

Hi All,
I got a call from my recruiter to schedule my interview and medical on May 2nd and got the email confirmation. But my medical and interview expires on May 19th.
My question is how come they call me up front to book my medical and interview in advance before expiry, I mean is it good news or bad news?
Also he told from April in one year they have huge task of hiring almost 5000 people.
So let's see, but please share some advice about interview and medical rescheduling.
Thanks.

Hello Buck,

I am wondering how many spots are there per BMOQ session? And also how many spots are left for AEC DEO for the rest of the fiscal year?

Thanks

There are a maximum of 60 spots per BMOQ.
Although there are a handful of enrollments happening this week for FY 17/18; officially selections are now occurring for FY 18/19 only.

Hello buck,
I am wondering what is the next BMQ that isn't full as of today's day?


There are a few (less than 6 positions) remaining on most BMQ's in April and May; however the next BMQ that appears to being loaded right now is 28-May, then 25-Jun.

My file was just put on the competition list as of yesterday morning for ARMD Officer. What are my chances of being called for one of the 2017/18 remaining positions? Last I checked there were 4 left and more opening for 2018/19.

FY17/18 is now closed - although there are a handful of enrollments happening this week for FY 17/18; officially selections are now occurring for FY 18/19 only.

Re: Merit List - no it is not possible to give you that information as it is constantly changing, there could be 100 people at 10am, 80people at noon and 120 people at 2pm for a variety of reasons; as such this information is not released.

Selected and Enrolled are not interchangable.  Technically anyone selected for FY 17/18 was supposed to be enrolled no later than 31-March-2018; however because of the stat long weekend some leeway has been given for enrollments so there are a handful of enrollments happening this week for FY 17/18; officially selections are now occurring for FY 18/19 only.

Yes the medical expires on a yearly basis; continue trying to contact your CFRC.  If you do not hear back from them please look at my profile; there is an email for Customer Service in there, email them and they can contact the CFRC on your behalf as well.

I have similar questions, 1) If an individual selected on 28th (today) he or she will know by 29th?
2) "The left over positions" is very common in Canada force hiring or usually they always fulfill it by March 31st.

#1 was answered above
#2 normally there are not "left over" positions; this year was unique because the intake was raised part way through the year.  The problem with raising the intake is that recruiting needs basic training serials to load people on and the recruit school was beyond it's capacity at the time.

Keep in mind that your medical may have to goto the RMO in Ottawa for review; so if they wait until you've expired to set an appointment you could face further delays.  I wouldn't take it as good news or bad news that you're being scheduled ahead of the expire.  The detachment identified that you were going to expire and the appointment they had available for you was 2 weeks prior to the expiration.

Hi Buck, as always thank you again for your insights. Do you happen to know the next projected selection dates (which I assume would be the first round of selections for the 18/19 FY) for Infantry, Armour and Artillery DEO?

I know you mentioned you won't be positing specific dates, but you were able to provide the DEO selection dates for last year (19 April 2017 & 31 May 2017) ahead of time. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: I realised that one of my questions earlier was already answered in the last post.

More specifically this part of the thread:
Specific Dates
Please note that I will not post specific dates of projected selections.  The actual dates can change for a variety of reasons; and while there is information available to recruiters as to what the projected dates are, it does not manage the expectations of applicants to inform them that a selection will occur on a specific date only for it to be delayed.

While I used to post specific dates, as per above the projected dates can change for a variety of reasons and because of this I no longer post specific dates as people become dependent on that information and I don't want to mislead anyone.  Thank you for your understanding on why I no longer post specific projected dates.

Hi Buck,

I put in an online application for pilot ROTP today, in the link you provided above it says the deadline is Jan 31st. However, I've seen other posts saying there are multiple selections and no real hard deadline? Is there any truth to this, and is there a realistic chance that I'll be selected for the 2018-19 school year, considering I'm already in a civi uni?

Thanks!

In the past there was a hard deadline for ROTP of 31-January each year.  I have been informed that the deadline is flexible this year; however please keep in mind that the first round of offers went out by end February.  Whether there is a chance to be picked up this FY for Pilot ROTP; if the application is accepted you are cutting it very close as you would need to do all the processing for enrollment very quickly.  With applying today chances are you will receive an email in the next 48 hours with instructions on the next steps to your file.  I would urge you not to delay at any point in the process if you're hoping to be picked up by September.

Selected means that you've been selected to be given an Offer of Employment (i.e. when the CFRC informs you that you've been selected for employment); at this stage you can accept or refuse the offer.  If you refuse the offer you will not be enrolled.
     In your signature block you use "position offered", the selection date will be a few days prior to the "position offered" date as this is when you're "selected"

Enrolled is the day that you go into the CFRC and sign all your paperwork and swear an oath / make solemn affirmation to the Queen and now become a part of the CAF.
     In your signature block you use the term "ceremony" - this is your Enrollment date.

Your background/reference and credit check would also still need to be completed and processed before being put on the competition list. For me, once that was completed, It was about a week or so that I was put on it.

The service doing my checks called 2 of them I believe. They let me know which ones they called. The only reason they called me though was because the phone number needed updating for one of them.
