Fast processing
« on: March 09, 2016, 19:38:25 »
I applied to the Canadian forces January 20th, did my FORCE fitness test the night after, and the final step in my application process was on March 2nd.

I was expecting the process to take at least a year, but I've completed it in less than 60 days.

Has anyone else been pushed through the process this quick recently?

I have never quite seen an application go through quite as fast as your describing for Reg force...

typical time line for a new recruit is 181 days from the first time they set foot in a RC to when they are getting kitted out in CLFRS , I am currently a re-applicant and its been around 80 days for me to have gone from online application to being placed on the merit list..... now that there are no further steps to take the waiting is driving me nuts ( hence my lurking on this site )

Seems you have applied for the reserves? Since you have completed your FORCES test already. I don't see that being a super quick timeline for processing seeing as it is a Res F Position. Now if you said that was a Reg F timeline then I would say yes, it is very fast.

Then it's up to your local Unit or Brigade Recruiter to "drive" your application.  If they want or need to hire you bad enough, they will push to have it processed quicker.
Got a question that you're afraid to ask online?  PM me with an email address!  I don't bite........

Yeah, my understanding is that is very fast. I would have taken just over 60 days. They had my enrolment ceremony scheduled,  everything was very fast. If it wasn't for a problem with my eye sight, I would have been at my unit in 90 days. When enlisting they told me the typical wait time for the reserves is 120 days up to 1.5 years. I ended up taking just under 9 months, and after talking to everyone at my unit, 9 months seems average if not on the faster side.

Let's be clear, you've been on the merit list since Jan this year. You being medically unfit in 2014 is not the CAFs fault.
