Ya that makes sense. I never thought about the cost to process an applicant. I suppose once you pay an applicant according to their commute to the RC, pay to mail medical info and file to selection board and medical officers, and pay the recruiters for time spent it isn't cheap.

Ya I am pretty disappointed. I lived in Kitchener for the past 2 years when I went to college, so I was going in monthly from September 2010 to this April. Each time I went in was the same story, wait. I called in May since I moved back home (2 hours away), that's when I got the medical and CFAT booked. Why you made it so much further in the process even though I applied 8-9 months earlier beats me :-\. You must have more volunteer hours or something.

I'm still making the 2 hour drive Monday to write the CFAT

The recruiting centre called today and told me all 3 of my chosen trades are closed and canceled my medical. Still allowed to write the CFAT (which I will). Recruiter said basically nothing until April 2012. I think I'm throwing in the towel. Finished.

Maybe it's time for me to join the reserves ( I should of joined when the local regiment called in December), find a job related to my schooling and go with that. Hell, maybe in the next 2 years a CT to reg. force will be quick and simple.


Sorry for filling this page with replies, another update. They called and canceled my CFAT, saying it would cost them $200 for me to do it and since my trades "officially" on Wednesday they wont let me write it.

Jeez, they have only called me a total of 4 times in the past 11 months, 3 of which has been to cancel stuff .

I did not get the call yet. I was told I was suitable for Infantry by the military counselor. Although I still had medical papers to hand in. I handed them in the following day and now I await a response from the medical staff in Ottawa.

Ah I see. Had me worried for a bit there haha. Then your at the same stage I am. I was merit listed on May 20th. My career manager at CRFC Kitchener told me the next selection for those merited listed for Reg Force NCM Infantry is on June 15th. He said they probably won't call with job offers to the people they select that same day, but at least it means only a few weeks more of waiting before something happens. ;D

The broken leg is definitely going to make the process longer. Getting the cast off on July 4th.
If it doesn't pull through I'll just get 1 year of university or college, Volunteer, Work, play Hockey and keep good fitness so my application is more competitive.

Being told you were suitable just means you scored high enough to be on the merit list for that trade, it doesn't mean you were offered it.  :facepalm:.

Here's hoping!

Well, Ottawa was quicker than anticipated...I called back today and my medical was approved last week!  The Sgt. told me my file will be merit listed today, so now all I can do is wait.

My wife has also submitted all her paperwork for the medical, a need for a PFT (which came back completely clear and normal) held that up a few weeks longer than mine, and she is also awaiting approval from Ottawa.

I've been told to both call and email my recruiter tomorrow to make sure it's been done, so hopefully I don't run into the same issues!

The Mississauga RC closure screwed me too. Apparently my application made it through the process and I'm just waiting to book my interview and medical...for the second time. Fingers crossed.

Good luck

Congrats both to you and your wife. May I ask, what is the number at Ottawa so I can check up on my medical?

Not entirely sure if it sped up my application - but I had a job offer starting on July 1st. When I mentioned this to the recruiter I was given the direct number to the individual who processes the bookings (I assume this is why I had such a short period between my medical and my interview). I seem to have been very lucky and managed to get through the process quite quickly (so far).
