Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

The problem I see why everyone asks about accommodations and relocations/1st postings is because recruiting doesn't want to talk about this nor do they want to advertise or put an emphasis on it. It is not an attractive topic. Not everyone who is applying know of this site. The career is being adve...

Re: *** ASK AN RCMP RECRUITER ***

All applicants, or those thinking of applying, to the RCMP, repeat after me: - I understand that the Force will post me WHEREVER it wants to THROUGHOUT my career; - the Force does NOT need to accommodate me or my family on my first posting after graduating from Depot; - if this is a problem FOR me, ...

Can you share where others ended up? Did everyone primarily went West? Thanks


Primarily west to BC. Two went east


No one went to Ontario or do they tell you upfront not to waste your 3 chances? Did anyone go to a specialized unit/assignment or all went to GDs?

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Unique81, thousands have been in your boots before, sold houses while at Depot and made it work, if you get there and pass you will too. RCMP staffing doesn't care if you own a house at any posting, they provide housing in the less than desirable postings for rent and discourage members from buying...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Heard RCMP does not like members owning a home as it is difficult to relocate them; especially new members. We own a home in Ontario. I understand that upon graduation, a member may have a week to come home, pack and sell the house (to be moved to most likely BC) and start work. How is this possibl...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Does anyone know how much time you have between your last day at depot and your first day at your detachment? It depends on a number of factors, but if there is no move required (returning to home area) and if the shift schedule aligns just so, a new constable could graduate on Monday, fly home Tue...

Re: *** ASK AN ONTARIO RCMP RECRUITER ***

Question for Depot Web: Can you break down current percentage of postings by province? Do the requirements change weekly? What, if any, consideration(s) are given to a cadet with a family and kid(s)? I've read everywhere: "RCMP does not hire your family". But realistically speaking, happy...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Does anyone who is applying to RCMP have a current pension from somewhere else? I'm reading that pensionable years are not really transferable to RCMP. One still needs to serve 20-25 years for full pension.
