Reserve Open House events [Merged]

I‘ve got pretty much the same decision. I know the Rileys are having an Open House/Recruiting Display at the Royal Canadian Legion, 828 Legion St.
Burlington, on Saturday. So, if you want to check them out, that would probably be a good time.

Great, thx for the replies everyone.  I really want to join the Reserves but I am torn between the Navy and to try for the Marine Engineering Mechanic or Army as an Infantry soldier.

I will be finishing my diploma in April for Mechanical Engineering Technician in Fluid Power and thought the best fit to use some of that education would be as an R312 in the NavRes' and also gain more skills while in that trade, but I wasn't sure on how pratical it would be if I'm not actually on a ship getting the experience. Plus one day in the future I would like to have an opportunity to volunteer & serve on a UN or Nato mission, but I've heard and maybe incorrectly, that it is harder to get chosen for those missions being in the NavRes' then the ArmyRes.

With the ArmyRes as an Infantry soldier I like the idea that they can closely train to the requirements of that trade every weekend required and once a week.

I'm lucky enough to have the HMCS Star and both the RHLI and Argylls to choose from.  HMCS Star is having an open house on the 27th which I will attend to get an idea and find out more info.

I heard on global news while they were reporting on this topic that the "The Canadian Army is also reducing the length of time required for a person to join the Reserve Force, to 30 days."
Any truth to this?

Yes. Recruiting has been expedited. The intent now is that two visits to the armory should suffice to join the reserves, and it seems to be going alright.
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Does this speed up the process after your medical files have been sent to Ottawa because i have been waiting for my medical to be cleared for a month now

This is for the Reserve Force only and the expedition is in relation to background checks; if there's an issue with a medical than the file still has to be cleared by the RMO.

ERC is basically a CPIC check and some reference calls. It's been outsourced to a civilian company for years in recruiting and was done in under 30 days in a majority of cases. I got my volunteering CPIC and VSS completed by the OPP in under 2 weeks, and they only have 1 person doing it for the area.

Major slowdown was the medical portion.

But how are they doing it faster now?  Specifically for Res recruits?  And why just for Res?

The big problem is still the backlog at the RMO. It's killing us slowly, of course, and there's not much we can do about it except not attract too many people who will get browned off waiting too long.

Just wondering if this nation wide open house at all the a armouries had any affect. Be curious to see if their was an increase in the number of applications to join the reserves (and thus an increase in people on the ground). I am sure somebody is looking at the numbers.
All right, they're on our left, they're on our right, they're in front of us, they're behind us... they can't get away this time.

Our regiment has had lots of inquiries and applicants have begun the process. We had quite a few folks show up in Calgary. More advertising would be beneficial. From our side it was worth it.

I blieve it's a conditional Terms of Service (I believe it's 6months); a Reservist can be enrolled while waiting for their security clearance to be returned.  If there's any issues that would make it so the person can't be in then the TOS won't be renewed.  I'm not really involved with PRes enrollments so would need to double check the policy; but I believe that's how it works.  I'll look for the policy when I return to work.

So reservists can be enrolled after their medical has been cleared by the RMO? Or shortly after?
