What’s the verdict with TPS? Will they be sending recruits to the winter class? Are they going to open up the application process again? Are they going on a freeze? I keep hearing different things.
Hiring is on a pause. Refer to their Instagram page.

Hiring is on a freeze. Refer to their twitter page.
Hi. Just wondering exactly where you saw this?

The TPS recruitment Twitter page at the very top says “we are HIRING NOW”.

I know they stopped taking in applications about a month ago but they were still interviewing those who had applied already.

I was not able to find anything on Twitter stating they are going on a freeze. So I don’t know. What I do know is I just did my Psych test and interview about a week or so ago. But haven’t heard anything since. So I’m just waiting.

I just got my offer of employment by TPS. I did my medical on Thursday (after signing the offer). Should I be expecting an email stating whether or not I passed or failed?

I would imagine they’ll notify you. But then again no news is good news.

When did you submit your application?

I thought so too. Considering I go in for my uniform fitting on Wednesday lol. I’m just a little impatient and want to make sure I passed everything before giving notice to my current employer lmao.

I applied back in January. I made it through most of the process at that time and then got placed on hold due to Covid

Just to verify.. you are referring to parking, not a PC position correct?

Hello Dear Applicants and Recruiting team.
I finally got an email invite for Phase 1, and to complete a Pre-Background Quest. along with the written Local Focus Interview next week.

I would like to ask around if anyone can give me more info on these two tests.
What should I prepare myself for?
I have three days to prepare and study before I take the test.

I really appreciate your responses and emails.

feel free to email me as well: khusheva@live.ca

The PBQ is all about your background and history. Know and study your past including any tickets you’ve gotten, interactions you’ve had with police, past and current job, and etc. The LFI is going to be based on the answers you give. They’ll ask you brief questions about your past and the answers you’ve written. There is no test during that phase, just your background history. Good luck!!

-Yes sure, sorry I applied to too many forces and I cannot include them in my signature below, but ill give it a try when I have time.

But to TPS , I applied in May 2020.
This is my first email I got from them in Oct 29,2020.
So if you are also waiting, be patient as they stated on the email that they now have resumed the hiring process.
Hope this will enlighten your concerns.

Applied as lateral transfer in Feb, finished the interview and psych interview, got assigned a BG officer, then Covid hit. No one on my reference list or my current employer got called. Got a 1 year deferral email in August, anyone got any insights on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
