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.

Does anybody know when the Sonar Operator selection dates are?

Hello Buck,
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?

Thanks

Please see the following post for Selection Date Information: https://milnet.ca/forums/index.php/topic,125930.0.html
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.

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
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.

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,

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.

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.
Please let us know.
Thanks

#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.

Hey Buck,

I was wondering if you knew approximately when the next selection date for Med Tech will be? Thank you!!

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.

Please see the following thread: https://milnet.ca/forums/index.php?topic=125930.0

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.

If "selected and enrolled are not interchangeable", could you please clarify/define each of those terms?

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.

That is good to know.

I have everything done except the medical.
So it could potentially be a quick process after my medical is approved.

Hey Buck

I know there's a selection happening soon for NOs but my RC is currently working on my PLAR which they said should have been done earlier in the process, I'm not sure why it wasn't. However before they started the PLAR, I was told that i was ready for competition. My question is will I still be considered while they are still conducting the PLAR?

Nursing Officer Selections are unique this year.  Only 1 or 2 GDNO's are going to be picked early in the year; the rest of the positions are being held for CCNO's, PNO's and MHNO's - if you are one of these 3 specialties please reach out to me in PM so that I can flag your file.  If you're a GDNO then I wouldn't worry too much about waiting for your PLAR.

I suggest that you either reach out to me in PM or email HealthSvcsRecruiting-RecrutementSvcsdesante@forces.gc.ca

Hi Buck, did selections end up happening on April 9th? I was told the next round for W TECH L were happening APRIL 9th and April 25th 2018.
When I asked, it was the 11th. They didn't have access to my file at the time or anything like that. I was just asking randomly with the Forces Jobs page.
So I don't know if I might've been selected on the April 9th date.
They said it could be up to 3 weeks before you're called about it. If I was to call my CFRC next week, would my file show any new info if I was lucky enough to be chosen?
Or would my file update in 3 weeks on their end?

Thank you for your time, Buck

Afternoon Buck,

Currently on the competition list for DEO Pilot. I was told by CFRC Montreal that there was supposed to be a selection sometime last week. Any information on DEO pilot intakes for the upcoming (read May) BMOQ courses? Or would the August course be the more realistic loading? Thanks for your continued information sharing, it's been a real boon throughout the process.

seeking wisdom here Buck,

So i feel like im not the only one on here but here it goes Ive been on the competition list for infantry officer for over 4 months, I havent heard of any selections since last summer for this occupation !! All I have heard of from the recruiting office has been there are no BMOQ dates or spots left.  If someone can fill me in (Buck) as there are dates for BMOQ set up till september. As far as im concerned this occupation only gets selected once every summer ? I only state this since i havent heard of anyone in this occupation get selected since last summer. If that is the case there is aug 27th BMOQ and a september one two weeks later.  Do selections happen 2 to 4 to  6 months before or like years in advance or am I just in wonderland here?

Aloha-Synuclein,

Reading previous comments from Buck,
I can para-phrase:

During the time you are waiting on the Competition List, there will be other candidates added to the list, for your trade. It's very possible for your name to be bumped lower on the list and this will affect your selection to be loaded onto BMOQ.

As an example: If there are only 20 Infantry Officer positions open on the course and you are number 60 on the list, you would not likely not be selected for the course and would continue to wait. While waiting on the Competition List, it's very possible for your name to be bumped lower on the list and this will affect your selection to be loaded onto BMOQ.

I totally understand its a top to bottom approach in terms of competition list, Im specifically asking about infantry DEO officer selection dates have not occurred since last summer.  Im aware new people are added on weekly if not daily, Im just wondering is there a specific reason why Infantry is always left for the summer... is it because infantry school dates begin in december post BMOQ etc.  My other specific question is on selection itself how many months before a bmoq date is set does one get selected not as to how a competition list is crerated or selected.  Just wondering how far back candidates are selected for a specific BMOQ.

thanks !

Hi Buck,

I noticed that the '2018/2019 Paid Education Intake Numbers' thread has still not been updated in terms of SEELM Physio -- does this mean selection has not yet occurred for that entry stream? I was told to wait until the 18/19 FY to begin to be selected, but have yet to hear anything (ie. no replies to emails or calls).
