And without going political; military, LEO and border security are easy, acceptable cuts for those who vote for the current governement.
I'm happy to get political.

Imagine cutting LEO/Border Security budget while simultaneously spending billions on a legal gun buyback :pistols: :sniper:
I am happy there's a few legal actions already in the works, even saw today : "Saskatchewan Justice Minister Don Morgan says he’s prepared to challenge the feds gun ban in court."

The "less than 40% of the votes" PM may face some reversal of this dictatorship style order.

Hi all,
I’d like to thank everyone on line who contributed to my questions by answering them over the last several months. I was looking forward to possibly going to Rigaud in July but covid put a halt on that, as we all know to well. I’m likely going to accept a federal government job offer in Halifax with the department of national defence that was closely related to what I did in the Navy. I wish you all the very best in your training and your rewarding careers.

Congrats and good luck at the new place !

Another loss for the CBSA ...

In their website they state clearly that the selection process lasts up to a year. If they have kept that, you would have been at Rigaud in January.

The remaining candidates with usually no other better options are stuck waiting for CBSA to process their files ...

In a way CBSA takes many of the "left over candidates" at some degree as no sane person will wait for CBSA for 2-3 years if they have better options.

I wonder what they say on all these Job Fairs they hold - that takes 2-3 years to get to Rigaud or they lie in the face of the candidates telling them it's up to 1 year (as on the website) ...

In my case, liessss. Though my primary choice was MP Officer in recent months and they supposedly weren't going to be hiring until 2021 earliest and that was before the pandemic and impending public job freezes hit...I'm thinking a third degree for a different field might be necessary for me sadly.

Realistic no, but they need to streamline their internal hiring process. Heck I know some people deferral which is done with other agencies and still haven't got a answer

Thought I had finally found a place within a 3-4 hour drive for the PARE, and noticed both July and August testing dates have now been cancelled. Original deadline was May 29 - hopeful that things will resume in the fall.

I'm in Windsor. The Windsor tests that were scheduled for the summer were cancelled a while ago so I was going to do one at Sheridan in Brampton but their summer ones have also now been cancelled. I've been able to continue working out during the pandemic with my Peloton bike. I have everything completed except the PARE and the medical.

Good day all,

I was just wondering if anyone had any news re the 2019 intake process since the Pandemic hit?

As many, I currently find myself awaiting further instructions re the next Calgary region SLE and would greatly appreciate any information regarding this please.

Stay safe & remain vigilant!

All I heard was the same as last time a generic message to monitor my email. You can email them as well to find out further updates. As far as I understand rigaud training centre is closed but this may change with movement restrictions being lifted slowly across the country

Just did my CAT III assessment on the 19th this month but still haven't gotten any news. I was suppose to do it at a Health Canada office in Toronto but because they're closed for the month, I had to do it at a clinic in Hamilton (as per instructions from CBSA). Should I wait a little bit more or should I contact them now? And who exactly do I contact if that's the case? :ponder:

Thanks :D

Hello, I would consider waiting a tad more as everything seems to be pretty slow nowadays. You can always reach out to recruitment and ask for an update regarding the cat III. When did you get an invite for your medical? Thanks

Hmm.. that's what I thought. I'll give it another week or two then. I got the medical invite early February this year. I wanted to book it earlier but the next available appointment at the time was May :? Oh well :D
