is it possible to be sent to the same detachment that a brother is already located at?
Highly unlikely to No. There are so many variables that it makes it impossible to give you a positive answer. To sum it up; It is based on mostly operational needs.

How long has your process been? My security clearance took almost 8 months so it’s normal, some ppl I’ve seen take 11 months.

My recruiter told me the average time for security clearance is around the 3 month mark, but it is situational and depends heavily on other factors.

That's good to hear, yes I find my application has been moving along quite fast so far. I'm very fortunate for that because I've seen people wait as much as 8 months for their RMAQ call after submitting their SP.

Can anyone comment how often applicants are deffered at the security clearance level? I recently finished my medical and my doctor said I should be good to go. Only step is the final clearance.

Im waiting for my medical clearance currently, I am hoping that I receive it pretty soon as it’s been just over a month. How long did yours take?

I actually haven't got the official go ahead yet. I was told today everything has just been forwarded to Ottawa and it needs to be reviewed still.

It happened to me on my last deferral. It is all up to recruiting to make the final decision on your file. You can pass the polygraph, you can pass medical, and you can pass security, they will still do the final review and either defer you or give you a troop offer.

Morning,

Just wanted to add my two cent's worth of comments to a couple of messages here. I do continually read this forum just as an FYI.

There was a question about being posted to the same Detachment of one's brother. Someone responded with ultimately posting are done with operational needs in mind, which is correct. I've had questions as a recruiter before regarding being posted to same detachment as a family member, or close friend. I've sort of suggested maybe you want to forge your own path in this career, especially going to your first post. Learning the job is difficult enough you don't want to get stuck with having to be continuously compared to a family member. Just a thought. Plus even if you're posted to a neighbouring Detachment, its not as if these two places are 100's of KM apart. One side of a dividing street might be Detachment A, where a family member serves, and you're posted to Detachment B right across the street. This way you're in the same location but serving in different Detachments. Best of both worlds :alright:

More recently there was a question about how often people get deferred at the security clearance or final suitability stage. The answer posted was again accurate. There is no set number or percentage. Each individual's file is looked at separately. So is it possible to be deferred at this late stage, absolutely. Things come out during an in-depth background investigation or review of a person's medical records. Just stay positive, get fit and be patient.
