I'm in the same boat as you and I already had a Secret Clearance earlier this year elsewhere. Also did you get a Security Update email yesterday? I doesn't say much more than I already know.

You had the security interview already too?

They didn’t send me an update of any sort yet. They sent me two prior to my security interview. And yeah I have a previous valid Secret Clearance as well so I was hoping this would be streamlined but that was wishful thinking lol.

My clearance took over a year! Had to redo my medical last week.

Hopefully I heard something soon!

I am not sure if this has already been asked, but is it true that the PARE is valid for 18 months now?

According to their website , it says the PARE results are valid for 18 months so I would think so. Are you also Vancouver?

Hey Everyone,

I read a few pages back that when your medical expires they wont ask you to renew it now until they know you have passed your security interview. I had my security interview in September but have heard nothing back. Late last week I was asked to renew my medical clearance which had expired in October. Now I don't want to assume my security clearance is done but at the same time I'm hoping this is a good sign. Does anyone know if this is the case or was it just someones assumption?

Thanks Everyone!

Last month I was told that I was granted my clearance and they scheduled me for my Medical. My medical expired back in March. When I found out my clearance was granted, they were actually just responding back to my email (I had inquired about my clearance). It doesn't hurt to email recruiting :)

Goodluck!
