Assuming you wrote your psychology, how long did it take to get your results? I finished mine October 1 and I’m still waiting :(

Did anyone got an email today about filling out personal health self-declaration form? I got one, also in the email, it stated that my medical is extending from 1 year to two years. The good news for some of you is that it states that testings and assessment a are resumed. Good luck!

Hi all! Just wondering if anyone has heard much about medicals/CAT III? Mine expired back in March and right when we were rescheduling it, COVID hit us and there have been no communications since. I am also wondering how we are expected to get our PARE tests done when there are no centres open? The only one I can see is in Ottawa, which is over 15 hours away from me.

Thanks!

Hey guys, do you know how I can determine which selection process I am in?

Last email I had was for the psych exam invitation:

15-BSF-EA-NBSO-FB-5555/16-BSF-EA-NBSO-FB-006/18-BSF-EA-NBSO-FB-007
Check your interview invitation email, it shall states your selection Process Number.

Where did you have your Psy exam?

btw is there any private chat group created for 16-BSF-EA-NBSO-FB-006?

I wish to join~ :wave:
I'd be interested in joining a 16-BSF-EA-NBSO-FB-006 group if anyone has set one up too.

I wouldn’t mind being a part of that group as well. Seeing as how the timelines are quite the same, doesn’t hurt to get know each other.

Thanks in advance
