Though I'm pretty much a FNG with the unit, being in only for a little longer than a year and finishing up the last bit of my SQ, I'll answer any questions you have with the best of my abilities if you want any answers from me.

Hello Ducal

Thanks for the reply back.  Originally I was interested in seeing if the unit was hiring, or who I would contact for recruitment purposes.  Plans have changed since then.  Thanks for your post it is appreciated.

Hi Colt,
I'm sure all the E regiments in LFCA can use more bodies.
Here in 33 CER we are pretty short on NCOs and are always looking for new sappers - we have enough officers, just barely, and a couple of them came from 32  :)

cheers,
Frank

If that was your original question you should have come out with it earlier.... I have contacts at 32 that could have helped you.

I have been trying to get into the 32CER since August, but have had no luck thus far. I have not received any responses from the recruiters in regards to open positions, so I guess that answers the question itself  :-\

Do you have the right contact information?
How are you contacting them?

http://www.army.forces.gc.ca/32CER/2-0/uniling/recruiting/index-eng.html
Maybe they are pretty busy and expect you to start filling out the forms in that page  :nod: and send it to them with your questions (there are no obligations or commitments from filling these forms)
Or just pop in on a Friday night and talk to the recruiter during his/her info session.

Chimo!

Funnily enough, I actually went to one of those info sessions, apparently the security staff was hosting it because i never got past them. They just gave me a blank look and told me that they had never heard of an information session held by 32CER  :-\

Thanks for your help though  :), I will verify that I am contacting in the proper way, I have been emailing the address that is listed on their website.

If this wasn't the case before, you can now definitely get info and a tour of 32 CER on Friday nights at Denison Armoury. PM me if you need info on that. I am currently applying to the unit myself, wondering if any other applicants and members of 32 CER are browsing these forums? I haven't heard from the recruiters in a while, but I am hoping to enroll in the summer and begin BMQ in the fall. Apparently a number of staff will be gone on summer course (maybe this explains the delays), but someone should remain to look after the application files.

I'm a former member with friends still in the unit. The unit will most likely stand down at the end of June. This means no Friday night Parade. There will be a very small amount of staff that will continue to work Monday-Friday during the day. Don't know much about the hours of the unit recruiter but you can ask and find out. The unit will stand up again in September usually the first Friday of the month.

Thanks, I didn't know about that. Does this happen every year? I was under the impression the Friday parade runs year-round, maybe minus the Christmas holidays.

Yes, it happens every year with all Reserve units. The reason is that Summer is the time for courses and taskings so a lot of Reserve members are away from there units making it difficult to do training nights over the summer.

Guys, another question. I've heard that every year there's an exercise happening during winter holidays..somewhere, and reservists from 32 CER (possibly other units too?) can go on it. It's about a week or so long, and usually guys bring their snow gear so they can go ski/snowboard in their free time, or after the exercise, at a nearby resort. Does any of this ring a bell? Is this still around? And if so, is it only for trained personnel or anyone? Any info on this would be interesting.. Thanks.

If it's an EX then chances are you are not getting free time. As soon as the ex is over you are bused back to the unit and will begin cleaning weapons and sorting out gear. I'm guessing you may be talking about the bridging ex in Chiliwack BC as I found out that no longer happens at least for 32 CBG.

32 CER (Toronto) - info?
« Reply #23 on: March 14, 2017, 11:04:08 »
Hello all.
I'm applying to join 32 Combat Engineer Regiment in Toronto, and am wondering if there are any members of the unit around. When applying, I got in contact with a 32 CBG recruiter (his email was attached to 32 CER's contact info on FORCE.ca) and have not had any contact with members of 32 CER itself (I didn't know until joining this forum and reading around that the normal way to apply to a Res unit is to visit the unit first, and the recruiter - from the Horse Guards - has never advised me to do anything differently. My file is "almost complete" and I have completed all the necessary steps). I was told by this recruiter, during our first meeting, that I had a good chance of getting the job and an "awesome application", but I'm looking for any additional info on the unit, such as: is 32 CER hiring? Is it under-manned? etc. I know that the quality (or lack thereof) of my file is irrelevant if the unit is not hiring, and now realize that I should have visited the unit *before* applying.

I also understand that in applying, I've signed myself up for a potentially long wait for any response; I understand that the CAF doesn't owe me anything, and I'm not trying to be the "anxious applicant" who gets steadily more and more upset and posts more and more as time goes on. I just want to be as informed as possible.

Please forgive me if this is posted in the wrong spot, asking foolish questions, or redundant in any way - I've exhausted the search function and understand that similar threads have been created before but they are now out of date. If necessary I can delete and/or modify the question.

Thank you for bearing with me!

Perhaps if you ask in one of the 32 CER discussions, for those who follow them.

Mariomike,
thank you, will do. FYI by "out of date", I was referring explicitly to time-specific news about recruiting, etc. I didn't mean to discount "old" info :) Also, I wasn't sure if those older threads were in sections rarely saw the light of day, and figured posting here might be a good bet. I'm still a new member so thank you for the advice!

Hello,
Does anyone know if 32 CER is hiring? Is the unit under-manned? I've been unable to find much of any info on the unit so any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hey Canuck10,

I've sent you a PM with contact details for 32 CER's Recruiting NCO. He should be able to answer your questions.

Good luck with your application process!
