Doesn't anyone know about RCMP montreal? I want to do RCMP, But i want to know if there is a potential to be a RCMP officer in montreal or not after regina?
Why dont you apply for Montreal Police if you want to stay in Momtreal?! With the RCMP you have 100% chance of not getting posted in Montreal!!! There is not even a detachment in Montreal

Hello,

Has anyone had to re-do CPR/First Aid while waiting for security clearance? Mine expires in early October and I was informed Friday by recruiting that troops are now being filled for September and October.

I am now currently waiting for security clearance, since there is no guarantee of a clearance or even a timeline for receiving one, I’m wondering if it’s advisable that I re-certify prior to receiving clearance or to wait for clearance before re-certifying.

Thank you!

My lifelong dream is to become an RCMP officer, I do meet the basic requirements.
I entered a Justice Studies degree degree program at age 20 but then switched over to an IT diploma due to job opportunities I did end up getting tons of internships and a permanent job in the field. I have volunteered with elder people, teaching the the use of technology and will be starting at the soup kitchen soon. These days I am regretting leaving Justice Studies because a lot of jobs such as GO transit constable, and other special similar jobs require a program in law. I feel that I've wasted a lot of time by not getting a degree and gaining experience as a security guard. Would you advise me to go back and obtain a degree in Policing/Criminal justice in 2.5 years and become a guard or a degree in Digital Forensics/Cyber security from BCIT in 2 years? I know it's not required but the process for policing is long and I don't want to waste more time.

If you haven’t already, I’d recommend reading/following a topic posted by Dave Brown regarding post secondary. viewtopic.php?f=24&t=38863
Might not be an exact answer to your question but I found it very informative and hopefully more people post with their stories. I would also suggest you apply now as who knows what the application requirements could change to in a few years.

Hi everyone,

first time posting. I will be in troop 12 starting July 8th. I was just wondering if anyone in my troop or others during my time there is into BJJ. I was thinking about bringing my gi with me if I can find some people to practice with. It has been about a year since I rolled with anyone but would love to get started again. I am an advanced white belt so if you are anything above blue I will probably bore you to death but it can't hurt to practice a bit while at depot.

Probably not worthwhile to bring it to be honest. You’ll get an issued gi for your training here and while it’s advantageous to get extra training in, it’s much more worthwhile to spend your very limited “free time” to either just relax or practice the skills they’ll be teaching and testing you on.

Definitely get it re-done man. It needs to be valid for the duration of training. Mine was still valid from when I first applied but have upgraded to medical first responder and health care provider(cpr but for people in the medical field) and sent that to them when I reinserted.

I applied yesterday, I would've applied sooner but I had to wait 30 days after LASIK. Currently I am in Ontario and I know the application can take a very long time and the mean time I want to continue my education but I would have to move to BC for that. If during the application process I move what kind of negative impact does it put?

As long as there is a legitimate reason for the move, then I dont see any negative impact for your file. If you move during your application process and after you submit your selection package, just make sure you inform your recruiting coordinator, and then he or she will send you a form for the updated info.

What do you mean by ‘legitimate reason?’
People move all the time especially in a process that is so long and sometimes seems never ending.

I wouldn't listen to a bunch of applicants here, phone your recruiting centre. If something changes update them. My things changed(jobs address, refs, etc..) and I got a troop offer. Live your life.

I assume you mean from when I applied to when I was offered a troop date; it was 11 months.

Legitimate reason refers to any reason that you can explain, from as serious as a life change to as casual as you want to move around.
