Anyone else get called for troop 121 in the fall yet?
I know of one person who accepted in the gulf region. Don’t know specifics of dates or location

I still have not received any further update since completing my video interview in May (Atlantic region). Based on the fact that many others have moved on, I guess I simply did not make the cut. Any use in continuing to worry or am I wasting my time??

With RCMP Officers potentially seeing a pay increase of 23% I'm curious if they are going to reevaluate the DFO officers pay scale. :ponder:

I believe the union and treasury are currently negotiating a new collective agreement as it expired in June.

Has anyone had a medical performed by one of the Drs appointed by DFO, and what does it entail?

Based off what I can find/read the medical health information gathered for the fitness for duty assessment includes:
- a clinical health history
- a physical examination
- lab tests

DFO will be checking Vision, Hearing, Coordination, Physical health & Mental health. There's more details on the link below.

https://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/career-carrie ... ce-eng.htm

I'll also attach the RCMP medical exam URL since it'll most likely be very similar.

Glad to hear more people are moving on! Best of luck to everyone, and to anyone still waiting to hear back, just have patience, they’re pretty backed up due to Covid. Keep checking your emails, especially your junk mail!
