If they wanted to hire current MNR employees, they would not have posted on the public website. Postings are only done on the public website after a posting has been done internally. Remaining positions are then posted on the public website. So anyone thinking otherwise, you can be sure they will be filling these positions fairly. This is also one of the largest amount of new hires I have ever seen posted for CO's by the MNR...

Uh...where have you been for the last bit? There was a larger posting already this year. And this is the Ontario government; fair is not in their vocabulary. If you think closed door deals don't happen within the hiring process you're truly mistaken.

Those two competitions this year is the first big hire (i.e. more than 1 or 2 positions at a time) I've seen at Ontario MNR for Conservation Officer positions in 20 years. It's impressive, and about time.

Any more news from the latest posting? I checked with recruitment because I haven't heard anything...I asked for a debrief once the competition is closed and the candidates are hired. Thought my resume application was bang-on...guess not. I'll be ready for the next one. Good luck to all candidates who proceeded to stage 2.

Interesting posting for Enforcement Interns is up. Can anyone share some more information on this position? I used to think that Deputy Conservation Officers were volunteers similar to Auxiliaries. However this intern position seems to be similar to a Cadet program... but also mentions going to OPC? What's the likelihood of completing this internship and becoming a permanent CO?

Lots of questions kind of muddled up in one post but any insight would be greatly appreciated- thanks :)

Yes, Deputy COs are volunteers like auxiliaries.

Yes, the intern position is similar to a cadet position.

Yes, if you perform well you may get sent to OPC and get a limited CO appointment.

Yes, if you perform well your chances of becoming a permanent CO are pretty high.

I was an Enforcement Intern a little over a decade ago, but the hiring situation with Ontario MNR wasn't so great then, so I left for greener pastures outside of Ontario.

Great- thanks for the clarification! I suppose the DCO status mentioned in the ad implies a cross-designation between volunteers and interns... both having to be under the supervision of a CO.

I'll try my luck. Seems like a stellar opportunity.

Just throwing this out to anyone who can answer. Any info / link available for the physical fitness testing process to become a Conservation Officer?
