Hey all, I'm sort of new to the CBSA chat. Just wanted to know if anyone has any idea about placement after completing the course. I would like to know how the process works and if you are to select the area/region you want to work in?

Thanks!

Hello ,

Been awhile I’ve been lurking on this forum and finally decide to post something! I have finished all of the steps, only thing missing is my security clearance. Integrity interview has been done in February 2019 and no news since then ! I’ve contacted recruitment by email and they told me that I’m in the security process without much info. Only thing I had to redo was my medical evaluation a month ago .

Is it normal that I haven’t heard from them in months ?

Is there a way to contact them by phone and ask them specifically where is my file ?

Btw Congratulations to all those who now have an invite to Rigaud !

Quebec applicant
Yes it's normal not to hear from them for months. I submitted my Sec Papers in Jan 2019 and have not heard back about it. Last I heard in May was that it was still in process. Sent another email on Oct 2nd and did not receive a reply in regards to a status update. I've already received a (Secret Level II) clearance with the Fed Gov in 2017 which is what makes the process more confusing for me personally. I get it, its a long process just have to have faith and hope for the best. I would not put all your eggs in one basket with the Federal Government though. Look for other opportunities as well because you never know how long it will take.

Same here , already received security clearance in 2018 from the federal gov (secret level 2) don’t understand why they have to redo it

To be fair, I blew out my ACL and meniscus which required reconstructive surgery and delayed me some. But there was still a year alone for my clearance. Then when I redid my medical someone inputted my name wrong and so they claimed they never received my results which resulted in me getting passed up on three rounds of intakes.
So essentially just a series of really unfortunate luck.
Here's hoping you'll get in January. That's the best intake anyway.
Yeah basically! Thanks, I'm hoping for January as well but I've yet to receive my results from my psych renewal. We'll see!
Hi there, when did you first pass your psych int/test? I got my sec clearance recently but my psych was done back in Jan 2018. I had to redo the medical and PARE. I guess they had to resched the psych for you right?

New to the forum, although I have been recently keeping an eye out for winter invites.

I noticed several people asking when invites for winter 2020 are expected. I assume this week or next would be likely due to an email I received in September. Recruitment asked me to renew my PARE and ensure it's submitted by October 15th to be considered for the winter intakes. I imagine that they would currently be assigning seats for the next intakes in Jan/Feb. Obviously speculation but for those interested I hope that helps.
