The RCMP Union is finally here. Might take a few years before a CBA is agreed on with the federal government.

Hey Everyone,
I am excited I found this helpful resource and I hope to one day meet some of you at Depot! I'm coming off of a 3 year deferral which I got in the PEP. I learned a valuable lesion to try to chill out and not be nervous for my next time around. I'm currently in suitability, waiting for the RMAQ review and the RFI. I'm excited to finally be in this waiting game again and reading through this forum has brought me some closure knowing its not just me who finds it difficult waiting.

I also had a question regarding marijuana now that its legal. I know my friend whos a RM said that an officer cant consume within 30 days of a shift which essentially bans it. I've never done any illegal drugs (including marijuana) and I was interested to know if it still carries the one year clean requirement as it was stated in the FAQ page. Does it still carry the automatic rejection or is it viewed more like alcohol where as long as you aren't abusing it, its okay?

My PEP Examiner viewed it as alcohol, so long as you aren't abusing it you are fine, provided that you are honest.

My PEP examiner just stated that you had to be clean 28 days before your PEP. I don't smoke (haven't since I was 16) so I didn't really get into the subject with her. Best of luck to you!

Mine just made sure that it was within the RCMP policy of 28 days. I also haven't smoked since I was a teenager and they passed me, so don't stress, don't lie and good luck.

Hey everyone ^_^.

Passed the test and just waiting on suitability. Was told by my file coordinator that suitability has a bit of a backlog.

Just wanted to say congratulations to everyone who got a troop and I’m really looking forward to my call in the future (despite the fact I’ve probably got atleast another year of waiting haha).

Neither did I until I got the email for it. I unfortunately can’t tell you about the test at all. First thing everyone is told is “if you reveal the contents it could basically make my application forfeit”. I found it easy personally but I can tell many had issues with well... heavy breathing across the room.

It may be something new they are doing.

Wish you all the best :)

I actually just joined a new gym, fitness battalion in Mississauga. They have classes designed more for law enforcement. People in the classes are police officer applicants and even RCMP (so I’ve been told). I asked the trainer there and he is willing to make a PARE course if there’s enough demand and we would practice it. Again, I just joined but so far the gym has a solid foundation and will definitely assist me when I get to depot by conditioning my body.

Thank you for your prompt response, where abouts in Mississauga is this gym? And is there is a drop in class available? How many people do you have in class so far, how do i contact you?

I recently signed up to the gym here in my area in Richmond Hill, they do not have any law enforcement trainings classes however; for extra fee you must hire a trainer who trained a few police officers as he mentioned.

Hello,
I see your process is about the same time as mine, I also applied in Dec/Jan 2019, but I haven`t done most of the process you have, is there possibility that the application process/time can vary/differ for each province differently?

I heard that processing time for applicants depends on where they are located provincially, however it also can vary on Regina & Ottawa since all the information needs to pass through your Recruiting Analyst (Which most likely they are based in Regina) and Ottawa (They double check/confirm the information from your Recruiting Analyst).

Most often than not, there is a backlog of files either at QAR or Security Clearance if you have seen the recent posts.

Short answer, yes! Tack on an infinite amount of other reasons as to why process/time can vary/differ, you’ll realize soon that it just doesn’t matter and you’ll never be satisfied trying to make sense of it, just sit tight:)
