I did the exact same thing and got the same answer...I then contacted the Personal Psychology Centre with the same question, but they just forwarded my email back to CSC and they responded the way they did with you. My coworker is in the process for the CBSA and he did his MMPI/interview in the same day and was told that he passed before he left the session and received the official results soon after...go figure, eh? Oh, Canada... :)


Wow. Yah now what I'm wondering is when I'm actually placed in the "pool of canadiates" is it once I get actual confirmation that my psych results are good. Or when I finnished my online training?

My S1 completion email said I would be placed in the pool after all the requirements (psych) were met.

Quick question for you guys. How long between when you confirmed your intent and when you got your Conditional Letter of Offer?

Thanks a lot for all the awesome info on the site.

Took about 1.5 months for mine, but I never received the official results...just the offer...but then again I was never told that I passed my interview or medical either ;)


I still don't have any of my results (medical, psych, interview) but I leave for Regina in 5 days. :D :D :D
Stick to the rule of "No news is good news". I was told that as long as you are progressing, you passed.

Best of luck to everyone still waiting!!!!

I am hoping that I will not be the only FNG heading out east.

are you a Maritimer by birth? If not..then there has been an admin error and you will be terminated! :mrgreen:


It's not like he's stealing a Maritimer's job though. Corrections is year round employment, not 3 months on 9 months pogie and CSC doesn't involve fishing boats :sniper:

When you start as a new cx how much leave to you start with and when does it go up..... After 2,5, 10 years and what does it go to as your time in accumulates?
I also heard if your are comming from another govt agency you can transfer your years of service for leave purposes only!

Any truth to that....


Thanks
