Have any unsuccessful applicants received confirmation that they've been screened out? It's been several months since I received confirmation of receipt for my resume/cover letter and I'm starting to fear the worst.

Good luck to anyone else in the process.
Did my PBQ a couple weeks ago and it's been radio silence. Granted there were maybe 100 people writing at the same time.

Received my answer today. Unsuccessful applicants are still notified by email.

Good luck to the rest of you.

Hey guys

I passed the blended interview last week. Not the easiest interview but I'm happy it went well.
I filled paperwork after and sent the package but did not receive any feedback ..

I'm wondering if somebody has information about that ? I know they hired candidates a few weeks ago and I think they are waiting for OPC to re open before processing with current applicants like me.

Have a nice day

I applied on June 2019. 7 months after I got an invite for PBQ on January 15 2020 and blended interview was 1 week ago. I don't know why I got that timeline but fortunaly things are moving now ... just wondering if they are still processing candidates at the moment. It has been a few days without feedback but I was expecting maybe an email saying the hiring process is slowing down or something .. stay positive !

Timelines differ for everyone. You have waited 7 months to get a PBQ, atleast things are moving for you. I have just applied in March this year and yes haven’t heard. For some, the process is really fast.

I'm at the 3 month mark and I've got my psych booked for next week.

Things are still moving along. No clue what's happening after that with OPC being closed.

Congrats on making it through the Blended... I was surprised to get a reply on passing so quickly. I'm hearing the next class (assuming all goes well), is going to be another 48 officers... unconfirmed of course. Regardless, it's a good time to be in the process!

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.
