Hi all, I.got my secret security clearance day before yesterday. Does anyone have an idea how long it usually takes to get an OTIP invite after the clearance?
It took me about 8 months to get invited after I got my clearance, but it varies person to person. About a 2.5 year process for me so far.
Thanks Treeego and congrats for making it through despite the long wait! I hope mine comes sooner than later. It depends on the queue ahead of me too I guess.

Hey guys, first time posting in this thread. Does anyone know if the agency pays for your move to your POE after you graduate the college? Thanks
Yes, they do, but not to the same extent as a full-time employee ($10k). You will get $5k, however, will have to provide proof of everything aside from meal allowances and gas/mileage and they're not the fastest at getting it to you between the 2 weeks of graduation and reporting to your POE.
5K? Do they expect you to pack and move yourself with a rental? I am asking because for me it would be a switch from the CAF and the CAF provides movers who come and pack/load and transport all your belongings and you just make sure you get to work your first day/

The CAF is hurting for people (in some trades), the CBSA is definitly not. They could probably give a $100 for moving allowance and there would still be 20,000 applicants per year.

Supply and demand: Endless supply of applicants means they can get away with more.

Yeah I got confirmation today as well via email. Called and provided my sin number as well. Also think there should be a place on the acceptance letter for applicants to put sin number instead of calling. I don't understand this logic.

Maybe it'll help make payroll stuff get processed quicker? Since it's already been said on here it can take up to 8 weeks after you start working before you start getting paid, which is ridiculous.
