I just want to make sure that currently the CBSA is NOT hiring? I've been checking the Government of Canada website since the beginning of March and nothing has opened up.
Recently, administrative positions and a Forensic Facial Examiner has appeared. Am I looking in the right place?

Cheers.

Jean Francois passed his interview in December and is still waiting for the next step... which is Psychology testing.

Buckle up.
What is better? To be born good, or to overcome your evil nature through great effort?

Yes you will get another chance just read the email properly it says everything in there. Just email them and tell them that why you cant attend the interview with PROOF like medical certificate, paid holiday etc

So true @ tornelco!! When I received the psych invite last month, the subject in the email was
"16-BSF-EA-NBSO-FB-006/18-BSF-EA-NBSO-FB-007 - CBSA Psychological Assessment"
I applied for 18-BSF
This just made me think that they still have a lot of applicants to process from the 16-BSF posting.
But who knows!!
CBSA Application:

Applied: Sept, 2018
OTEE: Oct, 2018
PARE: Nov, 2018
Interview: Nov, 2018

Pscych Evaluation: April, 2019
Security papers sent April 2019
