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.

Despite his unfortunate posting (Recruiting AND "O"), I highly endorse this answer!

And don't be the Right Marker.
I have been told so many times by members when I did my ride alongs.
Just to throw a wrench in this thought, I was the Right Marker of my troop and it was aaaawwwwweesome. I had fun as Right Marker. Sure, it’s added stress and you’re basically herding cats, but the responsibility is a great challenge and you get to tell people to steady (shut) up!

Yeah, even though I've been told not to do it due to the added stress, I would like to sign up/volunteer for it anyways due to the added fun/challenge.

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.
I was deferred in my last application at final suitability review.

Hey !
I'm an applicant from the Div E (Surrey, BC).
SP is an abbreviation for the Selection Package.
I hope you get a response very soon !

Hello,

I have recently completed my medical stage and have my psychological examination booked for Monday. Does anyone have any idea of how long a troop offer could take after my psychological examination is completed?

Literally no one knows the answer to your question, some of us have been waiting for 6 months, 8 months, upwards of a year between steps, everyone’s timeline is different.

I wonder why everyone’s timelines would be so different, other than the normal response of “everyone has different work history, travel history etc”

A multitude of reasons, some even beyond our knowledge and understanding. You’ll see applicants fly through and you’ll see applicants sit and wait and then sit and wait some more. There’s no method to the madness, just x reason for x applicant. Best advice given to me (and advice you’ll read many times over) is to sit tight, stay productive, keep yourself fit. Take the time to make yourself into the YOU 2.0, 3.0 etc..when you get that call eventually you’ll look back and realize how much you’ve improved and how much you deserve to have been given the opportunity to serve in this capacity (advice given to me by a current serving member) Good luck!

As Sig mentioned above.

It is almost useless to compare timelines. You are going to be driven nuts if you keep doing that. All you can do is live life and enjoy what it offers.

Almost 9 months from my medical stage to my troop offer, so take that with a grain of salt, if you will.

EDIT: I also would live to emphasize on Sig's mention on getting fit, I applied from BC (E-Div), and the amount of people who did the PARE workshop (and failed) is staggering. These people literally were leaving in a few weeks and they could not finish the 5:30 time required.

I worked with members over the summer and they couldn’t believe it was only 5:30 for a pass on the PARE when you arrive at depot. They called it laughable. I’m not in bad shape, but I’m also not in great shape. I have a bit of work to do I’m sure.
