That's 1 of 5 the MTO purchased as a pilot project. Apparently, the majority of the feedback is very good (except for the lightbar). Our powers that be are still "reviewing" the feedback but I wouldn't be surprised to see these become a big part of the MTO fleet.
No sedans.

Yeah the lightbar looks like something you would see on a highway maintenance truck!!

it's awful quiet in here lately....... any good news from the inside? it's been over 16 months since I have seen an open posting go up. without any hiring pool that am aware of currently, staff must be getting thin in some areas due to attrition and retirement, right?

on a side note, does anone know what's happening at Vineland scales? is it just a minor update and face lift, or will it become a super scale like Putnam and windsor?

This week we were told that 20-25 officers would likely be hired by June with a posting coming out late Feb/early March. This will be a provincial recruitment for all locations. Once it's determined which locations exactly will be staffed those who have been selected to continue in the process will be notified. Training ideally to begin in Sept/Oct.

New member here looking for a career change. I do not have much experience in this field but i am going to apply anyways to the recent postings. I would assume people who have experience are first priority but i have heard that people get hired all the time even though they have zero experience.I am still young (27) so a career change at my age does not seem that absurd. Always have been interested in an enforcement job but never pursued it during or after my education. How long does the process usually take, and what kind of tests are there?
Currently working on cover letter/resume to tailor it exactly to job posting

Thanks for the help/advice, much appreciated.

You can probably expect this process to be very similar to any other ON Government job posting.
There will likely be a written test, an assignment of some sort (scenario based, a presentation or something else like that) and panel interview.
The big difference between this process and the process for most ON Gov jobs will be time. Traditionally, all three components of the process are done on the same day and candidates are chosen based on overall scores. In the past they have done the testing in large groups and used those scores to screen out candidates prior to moving onto the assignment and interview portion.
In the OPS, the standard practice is to give the candidates the questions 30 min in advance so they have s chance to make notes and prepare their answers.

Expect this process to take at least 6 months

Each work location has a different schedule.

Hey guys,

I have a curious question for people that have applied. How many locations have you guys picked when applying?
