Re-apply or re-open file?
« on: October 29, 2016, 08:08:01 »
Hello everyone,

I am new to the site and just had a quick question.  I am finally going to pursuit my dream of being in the CF.  I applied last year and got to the point where i was going for my medical and interview, but had a family emergency arise and could not continue the process.  I am finally able to go through with it but don't know what would be the better route.  Re-apply? Or see if they can re-open my file. 

Any input would be greatly appreciated!!

From a CAF Recruiter,

If your file was closed last Apr (ie; Apr 14), then there is NO requirement for you to reapply online again and your CFRC can just "re-open" your file and continue on where they left off.   The ONLY time you have to reapply online, is if your previous application to the CAF has been CLOSED for more than one year.  Anyhow, once your application is reopened, they should be able to pull your file and tell you what documentation they require to continue the process.

For reference, perhaps,
