there are too many variables and is done on a case by case basis and how backlogged they are. My suggestion is just to live your life without reading too much into it.

because "someone" is not the same as "someone else"

possible reasons - processing delay or "someone else" has some red flags in the picture.

Patience is the key to getting at Rigaud but sometimes it is failing with high waiting times. I stay positive and can't wait to be there. I hope it will be soon for many of us here

As someone who was at Rigaud and sent home because of covid 19. I try and be as transparent as possible. We haven’t heard anything about going back as of yet. You hear a lot of people recruits that is speculate but nothing is concrete. I understand rcmp depot goes back soon but for us nothing as of yet. I say as of yet because our time will come. Everyone stay strong, healthy and your time will come. As for right now take care of your self your mental health and your loved ones as best you can and things will be better.

Hey guys, hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy out there. I know everyone is very anxious, but hopefully we'll be back on track soon enough. Personally I've been going through the motions of being two weeks away from going to Rigaud before training for 15D was postponed, so I'm very much getting antsy to get going again. Hopefully with the country slowly starting to ease restrictions, we may hear something in the coming weeks! Stay safe, take care and all the best to everyone 🙏

My guess is that some training will resume in some form in around July this year, but yeah, for many the intakes will be in 2021 and up.

At this time there are no plans to restart training at Rigaud. There is a Initial planning for going back to the workplace, however it will be a gradual process, occurring in phases. They may start with a limited return to the workplace. To be clear, that there are no plans at this time to bring anyone back to an office setting in the near future.

Would you be able to provide us with a update regarding candidates who've completed all the steps if they are pausing the assessment process?

Thanks

It is very sad to read this as I am someone who was sent home from Rigaud in March 5 weeks in. I have been doing online training with the online staff since being sent home and based on what they have been saying which nothing was ever said about going back next year this is disappointing. I know nothing is guaranteed just wish this would have been communicated to us better and literally last week being told by 3 different people that we would most likely be back in July or August no later than September.

Thank you for the update none the less time to look for a job once the economy opens up more.

I think it makes sense the training to resume in some form after July. Time will tell.
As you mentioned, some things can be definitely done online I guess, at least at some level.
Maybe now is the best time the training to be adjusted a bit to the new reality, and who knows, maybe for the better,... hopefully.
