Merit list and delays
« Reply #250 on: April 11, 2016, 15:44:13 »

Hello all, i am done my medical and also my interview since Febuary, both went great. I had to wait for courses to be accepted since i was in the reserves in the past. They are approved although i do not know if all of them or simply my basic was approved. I am now waiting to get merit listed and selected since March. I call my RC every two weeks for a status update and always the same answer `` final processing``. What are the usual delays for that and merit listing?? Anyone know??

Thank you very much in advance, Cheers

From the READ FIRST stickied post on the Ask a CAF Recruiter forum at http://army.ca/forums/index.php/topic,115341.0.html (you did read that first, right, in that whole minute between registering and posting?):

"Welcome to the “Ask a CAF Recruiter” section. The members tagged as "CAF Recruiter" are official Canadian Armed Forces recruiters. They will identify themselves with their rank, first name and the Forces.ca avatar. In order to best answer questions, there are some rules that need to be adhered to.

"This section is for persons who have questions about joining the Canadian Armed Forces, occupations, different enrolment programs, and prerequisites. Much of the information can be found at Forces.ca, or the Recruiting FAQ and wiki section of this site. Before you ask a question, you should be searching the forum or the Forces.ca website for these answers.

"We will not answer questions about technical difficulties with the application process, or the website.

For reference,

Merit List Timing 

How long does it take to get put on the merit list after your file is cleared? 

Good Day,

Once Headquarters is informed that your file is ready for the merit list, the length of time varies for actually being put on the merit list.  If you are trying to get into a trade that is full for the year you will remain in the pre-Merit List category until that trade opens up again.  As long as you are applying for occupations that are still open it normally does not take long for your file to be placed on the merit list though.

Best Regards,
Sgt Laen

'Twould be to your benefit to learn to help yourself. There is a Search Function here, and a method of using Google to search the Site. Increased familiarity would help, as well. This topic is, like many others, stickied at the top of its sub-forum to further aid people in finding it. Take some time and read through older threads, especially the stickied ones, as they are the most popular. By doing so, you will learn much and likely find answers to other questions before they even occur to you.

Lastly, you do not have a unit yet as you are an applicant. Please correct your profile.

Hello all,

I got a call a few days ago saying that I needed to go in to re-do my medical (since it expired as its been more then a year).... after I JUST re-did my refrences and clearance checks as those expired as well.

The fellow also mentioned that I WAS merit listed for Armour Officer.

What exactly does this mean? After I re-do my medical, does it have to be sent back to Ottawa rubber stamped then sent back and THEN I start the wait process again before I MIGHT get the call for basic?

And Am I right in thinking that I have until March/April of 2018 before my application and medical expire again?

Been going on 2 years now, I just want the job already, haha.

Thanks!

Hello,

As for the medical going to Ottawa, it would depend on if there was something specifically that needed the RMO's approval for your application to continue.  You should pose this question to the Medical Staff who did your medical as they're the only ones who can tell you whether your file needs to goto Ottawa for medical approval or not.

You are right in thinking that in March/April 2018 should you not be selected by then that you will need to redo your application (minus CFAT / TSD as they're good for life).

Hi All,

I've been in the extensive process of applying for Pilot over the past 2 years and have finally been merit/competition listed. My recruiting centre mentioned I "should hear back soon but no guarantee as to when", can anyone speak to when the selection dates are for Pilot? Is there a possibility I wont be selected at all? My RC is making it sound like it isnt a matter of "if" but "when" which is encouraging. Ive been waiting for about a month now.

Sincerely,
