Quick question about Troop Availability. I know everyone is different and would require a different amount of time but just curious what everyone else responded for that? I myself did 3 weeks.
2 days. My job is fully aware of the RCMP and have informed me that if needed I can leave tomorrow should I receive the call. Everything is already packed and ready to go :). Just waiting for medical clearance (did the psych already, medical is on Feb 12th) and then security.
On that last point, are you provided a kit list by recruiting once your troop offer has been granted?

Nope. Just the “what to bring” section on the website

No sorry, as in “before you get here, this is what you should bring” I was under the impression that a list of things to bring was provided but someone had already mentioned it’s on their website

There is a list on the website, but honestly, don't over do it. A lot of things you can pick up on the first weekend when your big brother troop takes y'all out

Morning all,

In regards to questions about what to bring to Depot, #1 less personal clothing then you think! you will be uniform the vast majority of the time, and likely eat a lot if not all your meals in uniform. Cadet's should be provided a "what to bring list" although I saw that it includes "pre-paid cell phone" which I thought was hilarious!

As a complete aside, one of the funniest times I had at Depot was that Saturday where 32 of us brand new Cadets showed up at Walmart and ran around raiding it for everything! Members will understand what I'm talking about. For some reason I still have the receipt from that day and I look back at it sometimes and laugh :D

If you have a Depot date and from Ontario, feel free to contact the recruiting office and speak to a recruiter. I would suggest the same for the other provinces as well. We recruiters are always there to help and provide advice.

10 months is a long wait for Security clearance. I hope you hear something soon!

I just received my Security clearance 2 weeks ago. Just waiting for that troop offer now...

Goodluck to everyone in the application process.
Just wondering how long or if you got your troop offer yet? I was told my security clearance passed yesterday and now I’m ‘patiently’ waiting for my call. 😂

Hello recruiters,

I misread question 19 in the RMAQ and did not include the few instances I used marijuana. I took the question as asking if I had used illegal drugs and since I did not use it until it was legal I did not include it. when I applied to the army I did not have to declare it so I thought it might be the same way.

I did not mean to falsify my application and I'm stressing quite heavily over whether this will compromise the prosses. if I was to email my recruiter notifying them on the mistake would I be punished and/or deferred or is this a common mistake that won't have adverse effects on my career.

the RCMP has been a dream of mine for a while now and I know I fit the lifestyle well. I have heard recruiters are lenient with things of this matter but I want to make it exceedingly clear to them this was a mistake and not an attempt at deception.

I have a question about generation cautions.

I know prostitution is illegal and not allowed to be a police officer in Canada.
However, I have been to a strip club and had a lap dance because my idiotic friend kept asked me to go and he said he is gonna pay al for it. I rejected offers from all those strippers to go out and couldn't even look at them. I finally accepted the offer when someone kept begging for it, when she sat down on me I said don't do it and let's just cuddle and have a conversation.

So should I put yes if they ask me if I had any sexual service?
If it is negatively affecting my application, then I am gonna unfriend my friend.

Calm down, they misspelled marijuana as marihuana. Just tell them you don't know what marihuana is.

Jokes aside,

Email them and ask if you can update your RMAQ.

You will be updating your RMAQ a few times as your application progresses through. Memory works funny that way. Obviously you want to be as honest as possible the first time you fill out that document, and the more amendments you make the worse its going to look. However, simply email your recruiter, list the section and question number you want to add and there you go. It sounds like you want to be honest about your past. Don't sweat it.

First of all, don't blame your friend. Take responsibility for your own actions. You made a conscious and deliberate decision to go to the strip club.

Lap dances have been legal in Canada for 20 years, ruled on by the Supreme Court. Buying sex is illegal. How that affects your application I don't think anybody can tell you until you put it down and see how things go.

I had something similar to this happen to me, I simply contacted my recruiter and I was given an opportunity to amend my answer/s and life moved on.
