Regarding security forms. Are security forms granted before an interviewee passes, or can they pass without clearance. In other words, when are the security forms processed?

I dont know if things have changed since but the groups after me had to bring in their completed forms to the interview. Their forms were processed before they went to Rigaud.

You bring filled out paperwork to interview, pass interview and THEN clearance starts.
Once reliable is met, you get a seat in Rigaud (all tentatively this is only regarding your clearance)
Pass Rigaud, obtain Secret clearance (sometime while in Rigaud hopefully) start your first day at POE.

When you graduate rigaud and are posted far away and required relocation, what does cbsa cover?

Do you still get 125$ weekly pay during the 4 weeks of online training?

Having just been relocated - it's an allowance of up to 5000$ covering your actual moving costs. You are set up with an agent from Royal Lepage (or what their new name is) and arrangements are made
[ though I did mine after the fact, and got reimbursed for *most* of the expenses ] Whatever you don't get reimbursed for, you get to claim on your taxes anyways so it evens out in the end.

Thanks for the reply. Where did u get relocated? You enjoying it?

In my case I'll be moving from ontario to BC, ill be driving because I own a car.. So I'm assuming they pay for hotel,gas,food? And if you'll renting a place, the royal lepage agent helps you find a new place or?

Thanks.
