Re: Ask the CBSA!

Expect it to take up to six months and then you won't be worrying. My interview was in December and I've got my reliability status but not my secret clearance and they didn't email me to tell me it had come in. I only know my reliability status has happened because of the invite email I was sent th...

Re: Ask the CBSA!

Hey all, I completed my interview three weeks ago today but haven't received any news. Should I be getting an email confirming whether I was or was not successful? Just wondering how long others typically waiting before hearing something back. Thanks! Expect it to take up to six months and then you...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

It's different for everyone. I had my security interview in November or December and I've received my reliability status but not secret clearance as of Apr. 29, 2016. I do not have dual citizenship but I have lived in a lot of places in the last 10 years.

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

I'm wondering if anyone who has previously taken OITP online can let me know what I can begin to read/study for, so I am a little bit ahead before the online starts May 30? I work 60+ hours a week between two jobs and work 730am-1130pm a few nights a week (and usually don't get one entire day off) ...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

If you have mortgage payments or an apartment .. how does everyone plan on working around that during Rigaud? I currently rent an apartment and I figure I'll have to cancel my lease and move all my stuff back to my parents house until I get a posting location. Anyone have thoughts/plans for this wh...

Re: Ask the CBSA!

Hello, I have a question in regards to overseas deployment with CBSA. I recently discovered that I am able to acquire dual citizenship with Canada and the U.K. My mother was born in England and carries a (expired) British passport.

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

I've always received replied within a week, sometimes two, through the national recruitment website. It's the only one we are able to go through. Either they didn't receive it or there's a reason they're not replying. They emailed me back a few times in response to questions or changes in my informa...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Hopeful, Have you informed the recruiting team of your situation? Perhaps they can arrange it so that you are definitely in the next intake under the circumstances. Hi happyface I've been trying to contact recruiting for almost 2 months. I've sent multiple emails to no response. Really hoping to he...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Congrats to all in 8a, well deserved! Since I got no invite today, I'm eyeing 8b and how it will work. What's odd is the 3 week break between online and Rigaud. Trying to figure out when the invites would go out? Usually they stagger intakes 4 weeks, but now if we take into consideration the 3 week...
