****************************************
I thought I would post this on a couple forums that I visit related to the Canadian Forces.

I am sure that I am not the only one interested in this info as I see posts all the time asking "how long does it take?".

I thought I‘ld post my application process as it proceeds and invite others to do so. As well as those who have completed the process.

All I ask is the following:

- try to follow a standard format to make it easier to read for others

- edit your post to update the info rather than adding more posts

- limit posts in this thread to related content (please limit discussions to keep thread size down)

- not all info is needed only provide that which you are comfortable giving

Post format could be something like:

Recruting Center: Edmonton
Regular/Reserve: Regular(great addition by a user on another forum and good to know)
Officer/NCM: NCM(Another good idea from a user of this forum}
Trade Choice 1: LCIS TECH 227
Trade Choice 2: SIG OPS 215
Trade Choice 3: ATIS 226
Application Date: June 19, 2003
First Contact: June 21, 2003
Med, aptitude completed : July 25 for July 31
PT Test completed: Aug 8, 2003
Interview completed: Aug 14, 2003
Position Offered: Sept 11, 2003
Basic Training Begins: Sept 30, 2003

Thanks all and I look forward to seeing how the rest of those hurrying up to wait are faring in the process.

Good Luck to all other applicants.

I am anxiously waiting for my medical to come back from Borden. I was told that there are currently 1700 medical files waiting to be reviewed. Am I crazy for thinking that it‘s taking a very long time?

There are actually two physicians in Borden who review all medical files for the Reg, Pres and CIC. At different times of the year your file may change in priority due to other programs such as ROTP or PRes Summer Training. Just a note, the more letters you needed from your family physician, the more research will be required on your file by the Medical officers. Some other delays could be caused by the shear volume of files at the particular time of year that your file went in. I had a file submitted in Aug 03 and they were still only in the May files for replies in Jan 04.

As for why you don‘t just get an offer once your file is ready: the CF only has positions and salary for so many people (60,000) once we are over that number then you will have to be applying for a distressed occupation before your file would move in priority. We are currently floating around 61,500 active Reg Force members. The PRes are not interested in paying a soldier to parade for 5 months prior to training commencing as it takes money away from exercises that trained soldiers will go on.

Just some answers...
