I’ve completed all that I could so far in regards to the CX1 application process.
Initial testing done
Interview done
References contacted
Fingerprints done
Security screening done
Pre-Medical done
CTP1 with formal test done
Psych written and follow up interview done

My biggest concern is that in my initial application I put in that I only wanted Atlantic region. After reviewing most threads through this forum it seems to be that CSC is only hiring for the Prairies region. Not sure if anyone could shed some light on this. I have tried to google and reviewed many many years of threads but unfortunately cannot see any clear answers for if CSC does have new recruits for Atlantic region. Also I speak a little French but not fully bilingual. Thanks

I am in the exact same situation. I chose Atlantic only. I heard that they are getting the new training facility in PEI ready for June. I am hoping that is where they will be sending the recruits from Atlantic Canada. The silence gets tough at times but hang in there! Good luck
I’ve also read up on that. That would be a great option. Possible that Prairie region received first option on partially l qualified candidates. Fingers crossed that this will be the situation. Good luck to you also.

Whoever has an interview coming up should ask how many officers are needed/required for 2019. How many for what regions as it can be a good way to ensure you choose the right region when prompted too. That way we'll all find out.

When I had my interview back in Oct. 2018, I asked the same question.. They mentioned they need 29; just over 12 for Atlantic Region, 9 for pacific and the rest for central.. but don't quote me on that.

Thanks for the insight on numbers. If that’s the case for numbers hopefully that email/call will eventually happen.
Time will tell. Thanks and good luck.

Those numbers make absolutely no sense.

So I had my interview yesterday and thought it went pretty well. After reading lots of the responses on here that their point of references are contacted immediately after and the day of the interview.

My contacts didn’t get a call or email. Did I not pass the interview then or do the references sometimes get contacted later?

Give a day or two. On top of things, contacts are supposed to keep everything confidential and are not even supposed to tell you they received the reference package (but not everyone follows rules). However, if they do disclose they received it, then you'll know you passed the interview.

When I had my interview, I mentioned to the officer at the end to only contact my employer if I passed the interview. Long story short,my employer received the email two days after my interview - full 48 hrs after I had the interview. he only disclosed this information as he was planning to transition me into a different role.

Hope for the best and good luck!

Fair enough. I was just going off what everyone on here has been writing, that their references told them they got contacted and no one mentioned of “do not diclose that you’ve been contacted to you’re employee” to the references. Thanks for the info!

As well, at the end I was chatting with the interviewers(awesome guys btw). They were saying that the one training site in the Atlantic region may not be ready just yet.

LOL, well, I guess it depends if the question was asked regarding a CTP3 class. That would make sense. However, regarding needs for FTE’s nationally for 2019 that would be a completely different story, and those numbers would make absolutely no sense.

An instituition in the Pacfic region has held two open houses to garner interest for potential candidates. I can’t think of or have heard of any other institution or region doing this.

Thanks for the info. Looking to see if anyone else chose Atlantic only for their choices. I have a buddy who we’ve shadowed the same process and he is being sent to Summerside PEI this June. He on the other hand choose all regions applicable.

Does anyone know/have applied for EI (Employment Insurance) for CTP3?

The last bit of info I found is from 2015. Not sure if things have changed?

Thanks,
