your time lines are pretty much the same as mine. Could i ask when you got the call telling you about it? Congrats and good luck too
I got a call on Sunday, 2 days ago
I thought we will be contacted through email to schedule integrity interview. Isn’t it?
I thought that it was to be an email to, however it is a different part of the CBSA that looks after this so a phone call might be the case here

Same here, I received a letter in the mail a few weeks later confirming that I had passed and that Health Canada was allowing me to proceed with the hiring process.

If anything like the interviews that's been mentioned here in the past, it should be just a bunch of situations and show them how well you can demonstrate the 6 competencies. Search up their definition and think of ways on how you can demonstrate them. There are going to be some intense moments but you just have to stay calm and handle the situation. If you've worked in customer service before, you should do well.

so, i did my medical about 2 months ago and just sent a follow up email since i never heard back about my result. this is what i got from health canada "We don’t inform the candidate of the result unless it is asked." i got a pass but still kind of weird :/
