Does anyone know when OITP is sent out for feb and march and when schooling starts in march?

Also did anyone else receive an email nov 26 regarding their clearance and hear anything after?

Thank you!
I’m in the 13B intake, online starts in a week, and Rigaud is Feb 11th. I’m not sure about March though. I actually received an email stating my security clearance was approved and I should be recieving an invite for 13C or 13D (lol) shortly after I’d already confirmed my attendance for 13B.

That makes me think they will probably be sending out 13C invites soon, best of luck.

I'm from Alberta as well, Did my Interview yesterday.
Awesome! How did it go?
I feel like I nailed some aspects and did terribly on others. Looking back there was a lot I would have done differently. But that's the idea, I was nervous and there was a lot riding on getting this interview right. Hope I don't fail, Today is the 8 month anniversary of my application

I don't wanna violate my non-disclosure agreement but everyone who gets invited to an interview will see there's a roleplay. I just won't give any details about the role play but I really dropped the ball since I couldn't take my roleplays seriously. Having a professional interview environment for an hour and then trying to play a role with the interviewers was too hard for me and I even ended up laughing.... So I guess we will see soon :((

Also unsuccessful in Calgary. :(
The only thing I was unsuccessful at was Personal Integrity - which is super disappointing because I consider that one of my biggest strengths.
Also confusingly, I think I know which roleplay was demonstrating that competency and I thought I did super well with that one. C'est la vie. :((

The interviewers told me which roleplay/situation was assessing which competency. I also did mine in Calgary, wonder if we had the same people and questions. (waiting on results still)

Hmmm I don't recall them mentioning which roleplay dealt with each competency. Maybe I am mistaken as it was a few weeks ago.
I was interviewed by Brian and Kelly.

I recall reading somewhere that you can request the notes from your interview...might shed some light. Doesn't hurt to ask.

^ Good point. But the email with the results are pretty much adamant that no further feedback is to be expected. :( Oh well. Like I said, it was an exciting process and I will reapply in 2019.

As this is an external advertised selection process, additional feedback on your interview will not be provided.

As this is an external advertised selection process, additional feedback on your interview will not be provided.

At this time, your application will no longer be considered for this process but you are able to re-apply when the next selection process is advertised.

Thank you for your interest and participation in this selection process with the Canada Border Services Agency.

They also interviewed me. They did not tell me which question was for which competentcy. Honestly the whole style of the interview took me off gaurd so I am not surprised I failed it. But now I know for next time I guess.

I haven't got my results back yet from the interview but I definitely did not like the style of interview as well. Role plays are weird since both parties know they're not real so how can both parties act like they're real?
