Just what we need.     ::)

Well, if you need them, I could try to email some of them to show up more often when you're here.

Sure!

Let them come in and fill in files that will be put in the incomplete........."Dead Files" bin.  If you have a fireplace they come in handy to get the logs burning on those chilly nights......very romantic/soothing with some soft music and wine.  Just what the doctor ordered after a week on the assembly lines.   ;D

On a more serious note:

To all thinking of joining the CF, Regular or Reserve, ensure that all your documentation is filled out.  If your documents are incomplete they will sit in a pile until such time as you complete them.  It is up to you to ensure that all documents are complete, not the CFRC.  The staff do not have the time to deal with incomplete files and chase after applicants for missing information.  They are more concerned with those who have provided the complete documentation required and ambitious enough to follow through with further testing in their application process.  I do believe that files that are stale or have sat idle for over a year, are discarded.

Remember that you must pass the CFAT, Medical, and in the case of Reservists, the CF Fitness Test.  Your Security Checks usually won't start until after those tests are completed, as they are very 'labour' intensive and there is no need for one if a person fails the previous tests.   It is up to you to ensure you provide all the necessary information and show up for all your appointments a few minutes in advance. 

Remember that if you have any priors with the Law, or have lived outside of Canada for a prolonged period of time, your security check will take longer than most.

Actually you're wrong, very wrong, I was given the option to cancel and informed it would probably be best, now that I'm looking into it that information may be fallacious therefore I might do as Liam says and end up doing the trio now rather then later, just need a couple more details first.

Well personally I don't give a flying f$%k what happens to you but I was basing my comment on your post. So next time state that you were given the choice not Found out that I need a minimum of one year of university for Res. Officer, therefore everything is postponed until May.

Application Date: October 2007
First Contact: November 2007

Interview: December 2007
Medical: February 2007

Merit listed: I'm still not merit listed because of my enhanced background check
Position offered: N/A
Basic Training: N/A

Can anyone tell me why My background check has taken 5 months? I first filled the form for the background check along with my application in October 2007 and it still hasn't gone through. Mind you i have no criminal record, never gotten a speeding ticket, have no debt except OSAP ;D (I've searched the forum and they say ERCs take 2-3 bussiness days if you have no debt or criminal record). I've left the country for vacations during christmas and i wasn't born in Canada (but have been living here for about ten years now), could this be it?

More than likely, although 5 months is not a long time.

Maybe you should go and ask the CFRC, maybe that part of your file got misplaced.

Also they might be checking into your history prior to coming to Canada and are having delays in getting the documents from your former homeland (wether it be cause of translation or just a slow working government on the other end. BTW this is not meant as a jab at you or your former homeland.)

EDITED TO ADD

After looking at your profile I think (and take it for what its worth) the delay might because of the need to translate the documentation into english.

I'm going to call the recruiting center tomorrow to clear up weather it's the ERC or the pre-security clearance (which could take up to year apparently). But being a med tech would i need security clearance right away before I join? not only that my dad works as a aircraft technician for the Canadian Government and he passed his clearance. I just really want to get this done to go to BMQ/SQ this summer but at this point I dont think it's possible....

To start I think you only need Enhanced Reliability (to make sure you aren't carrying debt loads for say deliquent loan payments or credit card debt) for BMQ/SQ then not sure if Medics need a higher security classification. Can someone please confirm this.

well called the recruitment office again today and now it seems that it's not the ERC that im waiting for, they now say it's a medical thing, the officer said it's quite possible that the Medical PO forgot to give me a form to fill out, thank god the recruiting office is open on family day, so I'll be there on Monday to try to clear things up
