Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

If you were given an option to work min/med vs max institution what would the majority of you applicants pick? Just curious if there is a benefit at working at one Vs the other. Any input would be great. If I were to make a recommendation, it would be that every new officer should have to do their ...

Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

Got an offer for Drumheller, training to start in PEI April 21. Tough decision because that’s a 1 1/2hr commute for me and I also have an offer from the provincial govt. But then again the provincial govt in AB is surely heading for big cuts so it might not be a secure job. For reference, my last c...

Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

Is the Phoenix pay system really as interesting a story as it seems to be? In my recent use of the google machine to look up as much as possible I keep coming across what appear to be nightmare stories about the pay system. Any chance a few active COs could give some first-hand perspectives?

Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

It's 1800 here in Calgary and I'm able to logon fine. I was on there earlier as well. Maybe go through your PC settings and lower them for the site. I was a bit concerned yesterday but figured it was a site maintenance issue when none of my devices could login. I already lost a couple of assignments...

Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

Is anyone else having issues logging into CTP2 training today? The site just won't load for me...constantly spinning circle on a pretty much brand new computer.

Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

I count on myself and my teammates more than any manager. All I can do is hope.that if the day comes that I need their support that I will have been a strong enough officer to have earned it. Nothing expected, only earned...just like trust.

Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

I asked my kids about moving to Drumheller yesterday (we live in Airdrie) just to gauge interest. It's only an hour away and that's not a challenge for them to still visit their mom. Nope. A big negative on the response...so we will definitely stay here and I'll commute. What kind of experience do c...

Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

I need advice and hope that some experts can guide me in the right direction. I accepted an email of interest last week and I am so excited and ready to start planning for August 22nd training in Kingston, but I don't want to jump the gun and move too fast. Should I be waiting for further confirmat...

Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

Just over a month ago I received an offer for the Saskatoon institution. I had to turn it down for family reasons. I explained myself via email to recruiting. All I could do was hope for another offer at an institution that I could work at (Bowden or Drumheller). Today I received that offer. CTP 3 s...

I know some classes started on the 30th of Ma. ..but is there any idea when the next set may start?

I am eagerly looking forwar...

Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

We lost 2 Correctional Officers to suicide in the last week. All you folks that are applying or have been accepted need to do some soul searching and ask yourself if you are prepared to accept the possibility you may suffer a mental health injury due to your career choice. CSC has become more pro-a...

Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

Okay...I received a letter of interest for Saskatoon Psychiatric Institution today at noon. It said I needed to reply by today. I can't do Saskatoon. Beyond the fact that I think it is not the place I want to raise my children; I was under the impression that the 2 selections I made for location pr...

Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

Security interview is done. Now I wait for the results of the report. Fingers crossed. Nothing in there I hadn't already told them and I've been completely open.
