Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Thank you very much for the info! Just to confirm: the first aid/cpr training is given at Rigaud right? First Aid/CPR is a condition of employment, I.E. you need it to be employed... I.E. you need it prior to training. Unless things have changed, you are required to do the full 2 day certification ...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

The union asked the CBSA about Rigaud but CBSA has no answer at this time.

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Exactly my point : Why would CBSA pay the bill for the "unqualified" applicants to begin with, and on plus, waste more to Interview them ? CBSA doesn't need 20K applicants per year, they need less, but qualified ones. No one is forcing anyone to pay for PARE and CRFSC either, but is mandatory to be...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

can BSO's become investigators in CID? If so how long doe that typically take before they're eligible? BSOs are the "feeder pool" for positions in the Intelligence and Enforcement (I&E) Branch. I&E Branch is made up of CID Investigators, Inland Enforcement Officers, Hearings Officers, Intelligence ...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

That doesn’t change how POEs are selected. That only changes when POEs are selected. If I had to bet it’s the same exact process as it is now, the only difference being it’s done before Rigaud. I remember the small communities post which did have some applicants but if I had to guess it wasn’t much...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

The process I applied to is different. It was confirmed at interview that those in my process would know their potential POE before starting the formation in Rigaud. They also did a small communities process before, which was quite specific on the POE that would need to be filled. I don't know how ...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Let’s say hypothetically in the early 2000s the CBSA use to hire recruits regionally. Hypothetically it was great for Southern Ontario Region, Greater Toronto Area Region, Quebec Region, Pacific Region, and even possibly Northern Ontario Region. But, hypothetically, it was terrible for Prairie Regi...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

I can’t see the CBSA changing the way ports are selected. There might be slight changes but it’ll still be a luck of the draw. No one wants to work at the Lyleton Manitoba POE. The process I applied to is different. It was confirmed at interview that those in my process would know their potential P...

I can’t see the CBSA changing the way ports are selected. There might be slight changes but it’ll still be a luck of the draw. No one wants to work at the Lyleton Manitoba POE.

At which point of the OITP process did you guys get your official invite to Rigaud? During or after online?
You need an invite to Rigaud to do the online training.

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

see here some of the issues the current BSOs are dealing with, like the fact that is very hard to get a transfer, which may eventually also benefit us, the new recruits, if CBSA decides to improve the POE assignment process to match prefered regions. That way they will not increase the scope of the...

Security Clearance granted yay! Can anyone shed some light on how the relocation works when you get posted somewhere? Do they send you there for a few days to find a place to stay? Or do they have people that find something for you? Thanks! You have two weeks from graduation to starting at your por...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Does anyone have a rough guess of what would make one "fail" during their time at Rigaud? Sorry if this is a dumb question or if it's already been answered on the 1250 pages. Just curious as to how this could happen. Exams - Didn't study Scenarios - (PIL, Secondaries, etc) DFC - Can't Shoot Being a...
