Did mine this week.
Have you heard back after your Psych? I did mine yesterday and it's so hard to say how I did. :ponder:


Haven't heard back regarding my psych results.

I believe I'mn the final steps of the BGI.

No news is good news.
How did you know the BGI commenced ?? Has any of the investigators visited your house yet?? This whole process is much different than I remembered. Have you done the fitness? Thanks for your feedback! :)

I was contacted by my Background Investigator. I'm not part of the recruiting team so I can't really comment on whether it's standard practice.Your Recruiting Manager would be the ideal person to contact.

As for the fitness requirement, Police Fit has created a Certificate of Performance for those that do not have their PREP( I wasn't able to get my PREP before the pandemic).

Hope that helps!

Awesome. Yes, thank you! This helps a lot. I was just curious about the BGI and how they go about it..

as for the fitness, I have a consultation with Police Fit this coming week. I will also have to get the certificate of performance. It's tough. I've tried the prep a few times in the past and haven't been successful on it but I'm determined that I'll get it this time around when it's time to go. :alright: ..hopefully. (I've been mastering the videos that were posted)

The best of luck to you!

Good luck!

The certificate of result is obtained two weeks after the consultation once they assess your results and put their stamp of approval.

Based on the current information that is subject to change, you'll still be required to pass the PREP and shuttle run before attending OPC.


Train hard and you'll do great!

How long after submitting your documents did you wait before invitation to psych ?
Hey Leo Mtl,

not sure if your question has been answered yet.. but for me, I got an email for my Psych assessment and interview the same week I found out that I passed the blended.

Got an invite for blended this morning, it’ll be through google duo video, pretty cool! I applied January 5th and this is the first time I have been contacted regarding the next step in my application.

Also waiting 14 months now just for my security clearance alone from the RCMP, I applied April 2018, now waiting and sitting at the final stage for 14 months I was happy to see movement in my municipal app.

I’m wondering, does submitting an application with OPS automatically mean an invite for the blended interview? Or is there some sort of vetting in between initial application and further steps?

No. I know people who were deferred after submitting application. In the job description, it says that being succesful in any step of hiring process doesn't guarantee an invitation to next step. Good luck for blended interview. Follow the instructions. Know yourself and you'll do great. Have a nice day and please give us some feedback about your process !

Good luck on the Blended! The OPS Recruitment Team does a great job at communicating with its candidates.

If you don't have a valid PREP, do yourself a favor and start your registration with Police Fit for Certificate of Performance.
