    Civilian Medical Records

    You really should not be lying at any point of your application and hopefully in your career as well (assuming you are selected for your preferred trade). As stated above, there are repercussions if it was somehow discovered that you were untruthful.

    Competition List Questions (formally called Merit List) [MERGED]

    Hi Roger123, I was in the same situation as you since my interview, reliability status, and my medical examination had expired after the one year period. I had the same concern as you and it was explained to me by my local CFRC that I would remain on the competition list. Essentially, you are...

    Selection Dates 2013-2018

    Hi SomeCodingNobody, I agree with you 100%. Finding something else to do in the interim would be very wise as you are not guaranteed a job. As a conservative approach, I would highly suggest that you assume that the CAF will not be selecting you and that you continue to live your life as though...

    DND: Opportunity to provide information.

    I knew someone with a similar situation like yours, but this was a long time ago. In the end, the individual still got accepted into the CAF (although it took a little over two years). I've lost contact with that person; however, I will do my best over the next few days to see if I can find this...

    Basic Training - Mentally Demanding?

    Similar to the previous poster's saying of "embrace the crap", former UFC fighter Chael P. Sonnen also had a great saying of "trying to find comfort in discomfort" or "getting comfortable with discomfort". I often used this when I ran in preparation for BMOQ (and still continue to do so) in...

    Selection Dates 2013-2018

    Hi Mahbub9803, Firstly, it is my pleasure to assist you. I was once in your position as a new applicant without much knowledge about the CAF and the application process. Many members on this forum helped me out with my questions, so it is only fair that I return the same favour to others...

    BMOQ 2018 - Regular Force

    Hi all, I was browsing the CAF subreddit and I read the following comment from someone who was in BMOQ: "I saw exactly the same thing happen on my BMOQ last month, with no repercussions for the instructors. The staff also told us "if you get injured and ask to go to MIR, it's possible you'll...

    Hi Buck, Concerning your statement that "for fiscal year 17/18 positions, you must be enrolled by 31-March; although you might not start training until later in the year. This year 31-March is a Saturday and 30-March is Good Friday (a stat); so the last day to enrol for FY 17/18 is 29-March"...
