one thing i learned during my interview was how spoiled i was by CFRC Toronto by the sheer numbers of recruiters and officers available there. CFRC winnipeg is extremely efficient from the number of appointments they did in the single day and accommodating.
Got the call today. Almost 4 months from application to offer, but I changed from PRes to RegF during the process.

Just filling this for future applicants to get a some what reference point on timings. The longest waiting period I had to endure was the time between medical and security clearance. Nothing you can really do at that point, but I am just happy it was cleared.  I am very happy to be joining the Canadian Army. Good luck.

After nearly three years, I got word of my acceptance into my preferred trade. I'll be starting BMOQ on 5 September for Construction Engineering Officer!

I'm so excited for this next step and to all those out there waiting for their offer/medical/interview/CFAT/etc, keep your spirits high, work hard, and don't forget that a watched pot never boils!

Looking forward to meeting my future platoon-mates!
