Hey guys, I'm new here. But I have a few questions that I'm hoping someone knows the answers to, and figured it would go best in here.

Alright guys, so I'm going to try and keep these questions and the explanations behind them brief. If you need more information, ask and I will provide you with what I can! So I started my application in April of 2015, and let it fall through due to personal issues. I had done my aptitude test, but nothing further. So I decided that no time will be perfect to join and that this is what I wanted to do, so I went to start up my application again on April 10, 2017. I was told that I would have to start a new application, as it had been over a year since my previous application had been actively progressing. That's alright, so I went and re-applied the same day. I got my automated email on April 12, 2017 that said that my application was chosen to be processed further, etc. So I did as the email said on the same day and emailed the Edmonton detachment to keep the process in motion. But it seems as though they had a different plan, as everything has halted (or so it feels), as I haven't heard from them since I sent the email, other than when I called to make sure they got it (as technology sometimes sucks, and I wanted to make sure they did get it). So, to get to my question... How long does it normally take to hear back to continue on the process after your aptitude test, and from what the website says, that would be to the Medical portion of the process.

Second question is, does anyone know what the time frame to get to BMQ from basically the start of your application right now? Just a rough estimate would be awesome.

Third question is, about my references. I'm 22 now, but I have lost contact with literally everyone I used to work with at a job that I had for over a year, I'm not a religious person so I don't have any ministers or clergymen that I can go to, and at the time I worked out of town for 21 days and was only home for 7, so I didn't play any sports or anything. There's two entire years where I can't fill in with my references (the company was absorbed by the sister company and nobody that was there, is there anymore). I also did a Facebook search for all of my foremen and even their bosses, as well as sub-foremen that were there, and came up dry there (most of them were older so I didn't expect any to have a Facebook, but I had to try). They say that they want 4 references who have known you for the previous 5 consecutive years. Will this be an issue, even after I have exhausted every avenue I can think of to rectify it? I only helped my Grandparents during 2013 and worked for the previously mentioned company for all of 2014. So I don't have professional references for either of those years, and there's really nothing that can be done about it unless they will take references from my family or my wife's family.

Thanks in advance for any answers that anyone can provide. It is greatly appreciated.

First link basically says everyone is different, which is true. But there should still be an average and that's more what I was looking for, but thank you for pointing me in the right direction. The second link was very helpful. It seems like most people are clocking in at about a year before BMQ start date from first contact.

This thread, since my question on this part is so specific, I haven't found anything that is similar, which is quite alright. Kinda figured I would have to call in and ask the recruiting center, but I figured I would check here first since I was asking a question anyways. Thank you again, Mariomike for the link and the help.

There is a waiver / stat dec process for cases like yours but it's on a case by case basis.  Have your Recruiter/File Manager engage the CO/MCC of your Recruiting Centre to discuss your specific situation.  Although there is a process for situations like this, again as I stated it's on a case by case basis.
