It is not about the cost, but the risks that are associated with laser eye surgery. No elective surgery is without risks, but I would take on these risks if I was given a conditional offer from the force.

My biggest fear and worse case scenario would be getting the surgery, having an adverse symptom like dry eye, and not getting an offer for the RCMP. Boy, I'd be really upset with myself.

I guess that's where I am coming from.

Thank you for taking the time to write.
So you want the RCMP to offer you a job and assume any of the risks associated with your surgery? What organization in it’s right mind would tether itself to that kind of liability for a person applying for what amounts to an entry-level position?

If you wanted an offer conditional on the successful lasik results you’re splitting hairs. If you think you’re a good candidate then get the surgery and hope for successful results, in the end there really wouldn’t be any difference, as your qualifications other than vision will ultimately be the same.

If you're still in the CAF, I was able to get the base surgeon to approve physical eye surgery as opposed to lasik which kept me off category and made the RCMP happy to boot.

If it was me. I'd definitely disclose it and just explain in detail what happened. If you're worrying about it now, you're going to be worrying about it if you have your Polygraph interview. You don't want to be worrying about undisclosed information when you're at that stage.
Okay, but I have see one of the applicant got deferred for going to a strip club. They see it as same as prostitution.
From what I've read, that sort of conduct will most likely going to get you deferred. Smoking marijuana when it was illegal will get you deferred as you are still breaking the law. There seems to be some leniency on marijuana, like for medical purposes but context matters.

Good luck.


I agree and disagree with your statement, sure illegal activity in the past will increase your chances of a deferral, but that depends on how serious it was. The RCMP are quite understanding when it comes to this as we are all human.. Having smoked marijuana 3-4 years ago at certain occasions may or may not land you a deferral as it didn’t in my case. There are way too many factors, All anyone can really say is apply, give it a shot and be honest. Everyone’s application is unique and different in its own way.

Every applicant is looked on in a case-by-case basis. It's not marijuana use that gets people deferred, it is how much; how long ago, and whether the person takes responsibility for their actions.

In this case, the person denies that it was illegal because "everyone else was doing it," and maintained that he was "forced" to go to a strip club, and was "forced" to get a lap dance. Immaturity, lack of ethics and lack of common sense is strong in this one.

Well, the Vancouver Police Department offers a mini selection for Constable positions to determine competitiveness before candidates commit to laser eye surgery.

The Port Moody Department offers the same.

I dont think these agencies are out of their mind...

Agree 100%.
I did tonnes of dumb and illegal shit before applying. Obviously it wasn't horrific things, but I owned up to everything I did and didn't try to downplay anything and I passed through my application and became a member.

Don't lie, don't minimize and don't be a greasy POS. Just tell the truth and be honest.

I'm very happy with how things have been moving along in the new year. I have a suitability interview coming up and Regina has done a great job keeping me updated by email. It's still a somewhat opaque process but the communication is much better than the CAF.

I suppose I'll dig up my service records so I can answer any questions about my time in the CAF. Can anyone comment on the questions related to Section 3 of the 1980e, "Service / Application History With Armed Forces and Law Enforcement" ? Are they looking for general dates of service and conditions of release or should I have postings and tour dates ready for the interview?
Have you looked at the questionnaire? It just has more questions for you and actually scrutinizes you a little more than the average applicant.

You'll know a few weeks before grad. You'll have an interview with staffing first.

So what? Telling you you are a competitive applicant isn’t a binding offer, and you’d still have to undergo the surgery and get suitable results before they would offer you a job. Regardless of what they tell you at your “mini-selection” you would still have to get the surgery, get the necessary results, and then be competitive enough at the time you actually apply. Whether or not you were competitive before you had the surgery will have no bearing on how you stack up against an entirely different applicant pool for a changing number of positions at some unknown point in time down the road.

No one is saying “we will 100% hire you if you go get this surgery.” If you need to get it to meet the basic requirements, then sooner or later you will need to get it and fully recover before anyone’s going to commit to offering you a job.
Don't call it a comeback...
