If I may ask. How were you able to do your interview before the medical?
I always assume the medical assessment was always first. Thanks.

The only response you'd get after getting in the competition list is if you're getting an offer. Otherwise, nothing.

I wrote my CFAT mid January. Still waiting for the background and/or security check.
I'm Swedish, lived in Austria and England as well. Nothing weird. It just seems to take forever. I have worked Provincial and Federal jobs in the past requiring background and security checks, but none took even close to this long.  ::)

How long is reasonable to wait?

Cheers!  ;D

Based on my case, it could take as long as 1 year and 3 months. I just received my cleared security clearance and my CFAT was in January 2017. The security check itself took only 3.5 months, but many other factors that I am not aware of extended the process. The entire presec takes months to process, I don't think it could be done in less than 6 months. I suspect the restructuration of my local CFRC has something to do with the longer than normal delay. Ensure that you follow up with your file manager often. At some point I didn't follow up for a good three months assuming that things were moving forward by themselves, but hours after I had contacted them they scheduled a Reliability interview (and I suspect that would have been scheduled many weeks if not months before if I had followed up regularly during those 3 months).

Recruiting Center: Hamilton
Regular/Reserve: Regular
Officer/NCM: Officer
Trade Choice 1: Construction Engineering Officer
Trade Choice 2:
Trade Choice 3:
Application Date: November 27th, 2015
First Contact: November 30th, 2015
Aptitude Test: January 19th, 2016
I attended university in the USA so I have been waiting for an approval from the chain of command stating whether or not I will need additional screening due to living there while attending school.
I also had to obtain my Educational Assessment that proves my Masters and Bachelor degree from the USA is equivalent to the Canadian degrees.  I first paid and applied for a comprehensive report fro ICAS but that was taking forever (22 weeks from February 11th) . I had to ensure I got a full report as I was trying to get an Educational Waiver so I could apply to be a Construction Engineer with an Architecture background.
I decided to go a different route and switched my Trade Choices in late March
Trade Choice 1: Aerospace Control Operator
Trade Choice 2: Aerospace Control Officer
I figured I could try out the 3-year Non-Commissioned career first before becoming an Officer especially if my education would take a while to verify.  Then I decided to try my luck again and sent my education to be assessed by a different company that promised only 4 weeks processing (WES).  I am hoping to have that completed by the 6th of May.
ASCT: July  2017 (Did not Pass and considered alternatives) I decided on Logistics Officer at the local HMCS Reserve Unit.  Procurement is fairly close to what I do now so it should be a seamless transition career-wise.

My application process had been a process! Here's how things went down for me.

Entry route: Regular Force - DEO
Recruiting Centre: CFRC Moncton

Choice one: Nursing Officer
Choice two: HCA
Choice three: N/A

Application date: October 2014
Contact date: October 2014
CFAT: April 2008 (Did this as part of a career fair back in High School. Scored High enough that I've never had to re-do it)
Medical: Jan 2015
PLAR Initiated: June 2015
Interview: Jan 2015

File on hold due to Occupation Closed

File Re-opened: March 2016
Update Medical: April 2016
Update Interview: April 2016
TSD: April 2016 - Passed
Force Test Passed: May 2016

Aug 2016: File on hold again as occupation closed

Jan 2017: File re-opened

PLAR Results received: Aug 2017
Medical Update: Jan 2018
Interview Update: Jan 2018
Reliability Check: Feb 2018

Merit listed: Feb 2018
Offer: May 8th 2018 - Nursing Officer
Enrolment: July, 2018
BMOQ: August 2018

I write this to show that sometimes the process does literally take years! It will be almost 4 years since my initial application when I travel to St Jean for my BMOQ. This is the reality though of applying to an extremely competitive trade. Nursing and HCA both only take in around 10 DEO's every year, so patience is required. I am so excited to finally have an offer and start my journey with the CAF.
