Yes, but the process might have changed. The Best answer for results would be to contact HR.

Medical is yes and no question and basically same as to get into policing.

It is about 12 pages long.

Good luck.

I did in fact, and was told that they can't provide any updates at this time. I was just curious because they didn't send any email confirming that I passed an interview. All I know is that references were contacted. Fingers crossed lol.

Thanks

I picked TSDC as my first choice (as crazy as it may sound lol) since it's closest to home, then Toronto east (I heard they're closing that one down), and Brampton OCI being my 3rd option

What institution you're at?

Yeah, TSDC I would try and stay away from. But the other Choices would be a lot better choice.

I haven’t heard anything about Toronto East closing. Who told you about that
