Unfortunately the holiday season just fell at a lousy time ;D. Need to get my training back to where it was pre-chocolate and massive turkey dinner season ;).

Hello all. I will be joining you in St. Jean on the 16th. Coming from Woodstock with London as my CFRC. Going in as a Pilot under the CEOTP entry program in partnership with Seneca College to obtain my Bachelor of Science in Aviaton. It's been a long year of interviews and aircrew selection but it will be so worth it. Looking forward to meeting everyone

Was just curious with the ceremony. Coming up soon and I have some questions.
- how should I dress ?
I know I should dress in nice clothes not gross and dingy . And perhaps not to over kill it . what about a nice polo and dress pants. 
- do they do a recheck on like credit or anything . maybe taxes owing or and speeding tickets ? I don't have any thankgod and hoping it stays that way. The last thing I need is them to regect me at the ceremony!
- last I've been training with the physical test for about a month now. Seem to got it down. Can run 2.4 km in 11 minutes . etc etc. Anyone graduated bmq can give me tips ?
Much appreciated guys !

If you want my opinion, wear a suit.

Your family will mark this occasion as a milestone akin to a graduation, and this is the first of many ceremonies you will attend in your career; in which ressing down is a massive faux paux (or extras ;) ).

Your Attesting Officer will most likely be in DEU 1A, which is on par with semi formal wear. Might as well look smart and proper than worry about "over doing it"

Just some food for thought.

Swearing in soon but no details?
« Reply #637 on: September 18, 2018, 09:07:29 »
Hi everyone,
I'm kind of panicking right now, I was just accepted into the Reserves last week and my recruiter said my swearing in would be this Friday, and he said he would send me an email with all the details last week but I didn't get an email from him. I tried emailing my recruiter and he is out of office, I haven't gotten a response from the email the autoreply had, nor from my file manager, the CBG recruiter, or the CFRC. I don't even know what time or where it's happening much less what I'm required to bring. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do?

Have you called your unit? Left a voicemail or spoke with someone?

Have you emailed your unit? Check your Spam filter for any replies?

Have you gone to your unit during working hours (8am-4pm) ?

Most Pres units will have full-time staff who process the daily administration.
One of the roles of these staff is to support the unit and assist it function.
The person you are trying to reach might be part-time. 
If you call / visit your unit’s Orderly Room (OR), the staff there
should be able to answer these simple questions, or
direct you to who should answer your questions.

The email you received, was it similar to this:

Well then, do as informed earlier to confirm with either your recruiter or unit's recruiting staff, but until you get an email of confirmation/offer of enrollment you do not yet have an official swear in date.

99% of the time yes.  If you are set to enroll the OR has already seen your name on their desks as there is a great amount of background work to enroll someone into the CAF (even the PRes).
Worse case scenario they say they don't have record of you yet, but they might have insight as to who you can speak with while you're waiting for your recruiter.
