Just received a reply to an email inquiry I sent to Canadian Forces Virtual Recruiting Centre, and the Master Corporal informed me that checking the status online isn't going to be possible anymore. So if you submitted your documents/application online, and haven't heard anything back from them after 3 weeks, you should be calling or emailing them to get an update and make sure there is nothing you still need to do. Don't even bother checking the "status" through the recruiting site. If you do email them, they want "Full name; Date of birth; Full address; Postal code" to confirm your identity.

Hope this helps as I keep seeing guys saying they are waiting 2-3 months between contact without an update. Be proactive guys. Anyone who has worked in an office can tell you that even though we want to get everyone's files done in the order they came in, people who are checking up asking for updates always get done first. I have accidentally pushed client files to the back and forgot about them for months and the client never called to check. It happens in every office I have worked in, so I am sure it could happen in the Forces too. Good luck guys. Hope I get a good update soon from them.

Hello,

I've been seeing a number of posts recently referring to selection dates for trades.  Should I be inquiring about this at my CFRC or is this information found elsewhere on the internet?  Any input on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Yes, you should inquire with your CFRC. Unfortunately selection dates are not posted by the CF publicly and if they are, that's news to me. The dates can be very sporadic at times depending on the occupation trade and the needs of the CF in general. Usually when a selection date is set, the CFRC will be informed after which, they can then tell you the selection date statuses you are interested in. Best of Luck  :)

First half of the medical is done, still waiting on my old documents to complete the rest. In the mean time I am getting a form from my optometrist filled out and have booked an appointment with my doctor to get a fit note to avoid any delays based on my history. Interview was short and easy, he was also very in depth into my trade choices compared to my last interview. I found out there is over 150 positions available for avs and over 75 for avn and less than 30 applicants between the two. To top it off he showed me that I will rank in the top of the merit list so things should happen pretty fast :)

So I applied this morning online, and this afternoon faxed all my transcripts and my birth certificate to the 705 area code (Ontario) fax number for the virtual recruit centre. I suppose it takes a few weeks before I'll get a response?

Do they respond by email or by phone? Thanks, everyone.

Should be about 2-3 weeks at least until you get a reply from them. The first reply will be by email unless there is some weird circumstance, but should be by email. This is generally the experience of most people on this forum anyways. If you don't hear from them in 2 weeks, it wont hurt for you to call or email them, and just ask if there is any update on your file and to double check they got all the paperwork they need from you. They have had all my documents for 11 days and the only response I got from them was just to wait im in the processing queue, first come first served. I will update when I get a reply, so that should give you an idea how fast it was.

I have been going through the application process for rotp close to 6 months. I was told that my file has been sent to Ottawa 2 weeks ago. What is the next step and about how long until it happens. I'm just curious if anyone else has experiences similar to mine. Oh and I haven't had an interview yet.  I appreciate all input thanks in advance.

What have you done thus far, then I can probably answer your question better?

I have done my cfat and my medical so far. I have handed in my reliability forms long ago as well.

It is always difficult to say how long it will take, because it is dependent on many different factors. For example, for your medical, once you are done your physical testing such as hearing, visual acuity, medical history etc..., your local recruiting center will send your information to Ottawa. There are specific personnel who review all medical files of CF applicants. They have to determine whether or not a person is medically fit and suited for a specific trade or trades. It usually takes 4 weeks for the medical to be returned back to one's recruiting center. If Ottawa has issues with your medical...they may ask you to give more information or signed doctor's approval of specific aspects regarding your medical fitness.

The CFAT is a general test that usually 'weeds out' those people who are not suited for specific trades (the one's the applicant has applied for), officer candidate eligibility, and/or the CF in general. This test is usually done first, as it would be a waste of time to grant someone an interview, or medical review or reliability screening if they can't pass the CFAT.

Reliability screening depends on many factors. First off, it is done usually once your CFAT and medical are done, your local recruiting center will do an initial assessment and then send it on to other CF personnel who may look deeper and check other information. Is your credit ok? do you have a criminal record? ... information of past history and experience also come into play. Bottom line for reliability screening is, don't give them a reason to look deeper into your past history. Issues during this process can cause unwanted delays in your application moving forward.

Despite the fact your have handed in your reliability forms early does not necessarily mean they started the screening process at that time. Like I said, they usually start it after your initial testing of CFAT and medical.

Some people have been waiting a lot longer than 6 months. The most important aspect in your application is that it is moving forward. You don't want to see your application process become static in progression. ROTP can be competitive right now due to the positive benefits one receives for joining that program.

In terms of your original question of how long exactly - no one can say for certain...keep active in your application process and I wish you luck!

Unfortunately I do have a tarnished past. My credit is ok now but I do have a criminal record from seven years ago. I have been honest and upfront with the recruiter. I had to get fingerprinting done and hand them in to the recruiting center about 4 months ago. I know that affects timeline and chances of being accepted. I was told that I scored very well on cfat and that my app was "favourable"(but that was months ago). Thank you. I do appreciate your input.

I think this is a fake account from what I saw on another thread, so the info he stated is BS.

Concerning next BMOQ for DEO, you have the dates on the CFLRS site: http://www.cflrs.forces.gc.ca/menu/cfc-ecc/dc-cd/index-eng.asp

It is really sad that there are people who have so called 'fake' accounts. As a DEO MARS hopeful who is honestly using this site as a primary source of information to aid me in my application, It is disconcerting to know that people would intentionally mislead me on this forum (or possibly mislead).

Thank you to whoever banned the person above...I hope that all my future comunications will be with honest people who genuinely know there information well and also, who genuinely want to help people like me achieve their goals in the Canadian Armed Forces!
