I've read lots of horror stories about how long CIC applications take, so it will be interesting to see how things progress. So far it's not too bad but I've been doing lots of following-up and being pro-active to keep things on track.

* I'm considering my application date the day on which RCSU sent my completed package to CFRC Hamilton
** Not required due to previous service/completion of CFAT, plus they don't really do this for CIC applicants anyway

Thanks for your add, Tayor dude!
I will follow your sample closely.
I wish the same trades but I am sure I will miss the next entry on April 2020, since I am applying from outside Canada (can't really show up for all face-to-face meetings since it would take many air flights).
Good lucky to you, fella!

Wow!
They aren't asking medical test to front line soldiers?
He joined as a reservist, he'll have to do the medical sometime this year.

Considering all the hassle I went through medical-wise in my CIC application I find this almost comical.

I'm sure he'll get checked out eventually, but offered a job without medical? They wouldn't even do my background check until I was cleared medically and CIC is the exact opposite of front-line soldiers.

To be more exact, I did do a medical in the past for another trade, but by the time I applied for the reserve, it was overdue and I was supposed to redo it. They told me that it would be on the same day as my interview, but bc of Covid my interview was on the phone.

It has been more than 2 years since I first applied and still waiting. About two months after my interview I got an email saying that the processing has slowed down due to the pandemic. I wonder if HQ already started processing my file for security clearance. Looks like I have to wait another couple of years.
