Good Day. I passed my initial interview at the recruiting center in April this year. On July 24th I got this email

"Dear Candidate, As a Military Police candidate, the attached Employment History and Police Application forms must be completed, TYPED, and returned to the following email address MPRecruiting@forces.gc.ca for inclusion in your file.Once these documents have been returned to the Military Police Selection Cell, your file will be reviewed. You may be contacted at a later date for an interview and further processing, if you are deemed competitive. Returning these forms implies consent for the Military Police Selection Cell to contact you directly for an interview via the telephone or the email address provided on your documents.  Until these forms have been properly completed and returned, no selection decision can be made on your file. Questions can be submitted through the MPRecruiting@forces.gc.ca"

I obviously filled out all the forms and sent them back. Within two weeks my references on those documents were called and everything seemed to be going smoothly. Not a negative word was said about me (according to my boss at least). Since then, absolute radio silence. I have been to my local recruiting center (ottawa) multiple times to ask about the progress of my file and I have contacted my file manager multiple times only to be told that we were waiting for MPAC confirmation.

Am I correct in assuming that at this point it is too late for me to be accepted for the October MPAC (since it is already October) or is there still hope? Will I also be contacted if Im not deemed competitive or will they just never get back to me in that case?

Thanks for the help!!

I am currently on my QL3, and there are guys here on course with me that found out days before the MPAC that they were on it.  So don't lose all hope!!

Edit for typo

Hi GermanWolf,

I’m also waiting to hear back on MPAC. Hoping I get a call before mid-month to book flights. It’s not going to be easy to suddenly try to get that time off of work though.

My CFRC has told me that the next step would be just to book flights, but I have yet to hear back from booking staff. Good luck.

Yeah that was also a worry of mine. In the worst case scenario I will just have to call in sick. Let's hope we both get on this October for MPAC! At least your recruiting center has told you to book flights, I have heard nothing from my CFRC and I feel like they are getting slightly annoyed with me checking in every month :p

I am hoping this is the case as well! Nerve racking process so far but I am trying to make the best of it. Remain in shape, advance at work (recently made it to a supervisor position) and spend time with my girlfriend.

Hey everyone just got my call for BII today slated for the 27th oct. 18 I am  assuming it is going to just be an interview my email said I would only be needed for 2hrs and it is just one interview. I was just reading some of the threads saying the process was going back to the MPAC model ?.  Wondering if everyone else going on the 27th 28th has the same info in there email?

That's exactly what my email said too. Two hours and you get to go back home right after (gonna enjoy my 5 hour drive home at 5pm  ::) ).  I guess we will just have to see what happens and prepare best we can for a 2h interview.

Wow, I’m getting super nervous that I might not get an invite in time for the 27th 😕 I’d have to fly in from Victoria. I’d appreciate more than a weeks notice. Fingers crossed🤞🏼

I hope so. My interview is in the 3pm slot on the 27th. I am also supposed to be staying the night of the 26th to the 27th at CFB Borden (according to my travel claims package). I guess it is a good thing to be well rested before the interview.

I wish you the best of luck! If not this time around, I bet the next MPAC is no more than 6 months around the corner. If it is any condolences I started my application process 1.5 years ago and the wait has felt very long.
