Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Clearly this is pure speculation, but usually they send all the invites on the same day so I'm not really holding my breath for a email. On the zoom meeting for the Security and Intervention Group, the CBSA recruiter said they are going to have reduced class sizes. I would not be surprised if all 1...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

I heard from an acquaintance who is a BSO that future intakes would be switching to primarily online training and spending only 7 weeks at Rigaud. There seems to be a lot of misinformation going around though, can anyone corroborate this claim? I was on that Zoom the other day with the recruiter an...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Well I am a little sad to hear that the invites for training have gone out already. But it seems like waiting is the name of the game. Thank you to the people who said "Keep living your life", that advice was seriously critical. I have a new job and it's pretty good, I am still growing professional...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Thank you for your reply. Say for example, you choose Quebec, were you able to choose a particular land border, warehouse, or airport in that province, like Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport? Also - did you choose your preferences before the training started or after Rigaud? And...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

The demand for BSOs has not changed due to covid. No matter what the agency does, there will always be a need for BSOs. The agency is currently losing more officers per year than it is training new recruits. We were just discussing attrition rates the other day. You are correct on this. The latest ...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

I also received the Psychological Evaluation email and I completed this step in April 2019. So if they aren't recruiting until after April 2021 then my second medical and possibly second PARE will expire too. Can't wait to get off this carousel.

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Rigaud is back on June 28th. Wave A got the invite and they are going back and they graduate August 21st. Not sure if wave B or C will be at the college at the same time as Wave A. I was in wave b 5.5 weeks in when sent home. All they have told us is you will get an email stating that you are to co...

Re: Ask the CBSA!

I started my application in 2016, and just finally got the call. Some people were one and done, inside of a year and a half. I don't think it hurts to send off a check in e-mail once every couple months. It can take a really.. really long time dude. Just my opinion though. 88) What do you mean by y...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Hello, I have a question for recruits who may be at Rigaud now. Are you aware of anyone currently at Rigaud who applied as part of the Small Communities postings? If so, have they shared any information on how these recruits will be assigned to their ports? Thanks!

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

I received this same email verbatim back in November (they had only sent out the January invites at the time). The only difference was it had no mention of summer. Two months later I received an email asking me to recertify my PARE and then a month after that received an email asking to recertify m...
