I just find it funny that a lot of people here assume that everyone else on here is male, there are a few of us ladies trolling around here too!

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

I'm assuming the emails all go out at once and not one by one? Or is it over a few hours that they go out? Don't quote me on this but I think people who are more Eastern Canada will receive their invites before those who are more Western. I've noticed that people in Ontario seem to get emails befor...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Generally, you can go to Rigaud with a 'basic clearance' meaning your security interview done and passed initially before the background check. However, you need your 'secret' clearance before the end of Rigaud, and if not you won't get posted to a POE until it is finished. From what I understand.

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Perhaps you'll get a conditional invite! I was told I'd probably invited to the online portion but not to Rigaud until my PARE was completed. I have other personal circumstances that have made it take forever for me to book my PARE! I'll be excited to finally get it done and get sent out for traini...

For anyone who may be interested: I just got a call from CBSA in Ottawa in response to an email I sent a week or two ago. They answered my questions but more importantly, they told me they'll be sending out the online portion of the training soon, and will be sending recruits to Rigaud shortly. I h...

They don't ask for references, no. But you will have to let them know if you left a job on bad terms.

I had an interview approx 2.5 years ago and failed, but was not confident and pretty much knew I failed before I even left the building. I had an interview t...
