A constable from the detachnent you are trying to join is assigned to do the background.
When I joined in 2017, the PC doing mine met with my last 5yrs of employers in person. Called a few more. He came to my home for an hour.
It can be extensive. I don't know too much about the process now since Orillia took over the process. It use to be that the units ran their own intake processes and updated Orillia. Now Orillia runs the show. They just tell us that we are interviewing applicants. We don't know who they are.
Someone said you go to OPC for training I believe. You do not. Training for Auxiliary takes place in Orillia. You'll start on a Friday and graduate the following Friday typically.

Thanks for the detailed reply subbie,

At my LFI they mentioned that they were hoping that I would get in the October class (back in May) but i can see that this will probably not happen. Im ok with that, gives me more time to get in better shape!

Hey.. check with your detachment. I got the phone call today. Moved on to pre-background questionnaire. Off in the mail by Monday and hopefully I'll be approved for the full background investigation.

When you mean phone call do you mean to let you know you passed your interview? I submitted all my background information as well as my other documents (eye test medical etc) already. Is there more documents to fill out after that ?

My process is moving completely backwards compared to yours. I had my interview at the detachment first. Then fingerprints and then PSYCH. Now Im onto background followed by a home interview. Then they told me that they'll be requesting vision/medical tests.

Nice, I have been in the background for 3 months now. Not sure what is the hold up? Wondering if I should email them to see?

I have been in the background stage for about 3 months as well. Maybe soon you will hear something? If not maybe E-mail the general Auxiliary account, they were a big help.

I’ll wait a bit more, knowing that I’m not the only one indicates that this is probably part of the process.

Well emailed them couple weeks back and now I have a home interview schedule for after the holidays. Pretty pumped!

Celi Lomb how did your home interview go? Any tips?

My interview went well! Just be yourself. I was pretty nervous but they make you feel comfortable.

I got my Email saying I was successful and now just waiting for my class date.

So happy. Good luck, don't worry:)

Same here, did mine Wednesday. Went really well. Still did not do my psych but they told me I should hear back soon for an date and time to go do it. That’s the only thing left. My bgi also mentioned the next class is in March.
