I applied, received a confirmation letter that my application has been received.. but have not heard from them ever since... it has been almost 10 months now. What should I do?

:alright:

Although a cheap shot that will likely get deleted, I have to agree.

Funny. I had my 3 hour interview with her and another man hater and waited 4 months for a PFO letter.
But oddly enough my interview for Prarrie Region took 45 minutes and I was hired on the spot.

Cheers to you Ontario Region Staff College. :drinking: :thumbsup:

Heard Ontario region wants to start a CTP in Dec. and one in Jan. Also heard these might finally be the first ones to run the online portion for the first 4 weeks.

I'm torn about that. On one hand it's 4 less you are going without pay(assuming you have a job while doing the online part). And in hindsight, I'm not saying you learn a ton those first 4 weeks in class. But on the other hand the instructors give you alot of help in preparing for the K1 exam. And there is alot to be said for the off the books stories the instuctors can give you that you don't get online.

Guess either way I'm just glad I got through it and therefore not my problem.

Hey folks, I've been reading all of the CSC material on here with great interest. I've just applied for Agassiz, BC, and had a question I'm hoping someone might know the answer to. Can anyone tell me how many references they will ask for? That is, assuming I get that far! Just trying to plan ahead as much as possible...

Thanks in advance!
