Also,

Once you begin at one of the Toronto facilities as a CO 1, how many hours can you be expected to get during you part time probationary period? Can you expect to reach 40 hours weekly?
At the Toronto facilities you will receive 40 hours right off the hop, every week. That's not a problem. If for some reason you are not scheduled for 40 for a particular week, all you have to do is let the Shift IC (sergeant in charge of the shift) and they will fill the void to make sure you get your 40. When I was a casual, that happened to me once (I got scheduled for 13 hours that week) and by the end of the week I had my 40 plus 8 hours of overtime. Don't sweat it. If you'll be serving in Toronto, you'll be fine.

Have either of you heard anything either way yet?
Nope, nothing yet. What's your timeline like?
I have not heard anything either. My first choice was Hamilton and my second was Niagara. I wonder if choices have anything to do with who gets a call and when? I hear no news is good news, so I am keeping my fingers crossed.
Hi Recruit20, have you received the offer?

Hello everyone,
I just started the process of becoming a corrections officers but I have a question. I just had my wonderlic test it was due by May 16 and I realized that I submitted a different email then the one I applied with. I guess I just used the auto fill and kept filling out all my personal info. I realized only after that it said to use the same email as you applied with I didn’t see that part Unfortunately, however my name and addresses was the same as my application of course. I emailed recruiting but I am still waiting for a reply do you think this will affect me? Will I have to re take the test or could they adjust my profile? Thought I’d ask here to see if anyone knows more.
Thank you in advance.

Hey everyone,

I was just wondering when you received the invitation to do the NEO. Will they only send it after completing the security clearance? Also, are the references checked separated from the security clearance?
My timeline is currently looking like this:

Ontario Corrections
Application - 2020-07
Wonderlic - 2020-09
React - 2020-11
Fitco - 2021-01
Interview - 2021-02-19
VSC Mailed - Received - 2021-03
Security Clearance - pending
References - pending
Neo - pending


The last update I received was o May 09th, when I was contacted to update the signing date on my security clearance forms since I completed them in 2021-01 and they are only valid for 90 days.

Sounds like you were on it right away through the e-mail.
I would strongly suggest though calling them at 1-855-927-CSRU (2778)
Good luck!

I can't give you a yes or no answer on the checks. Maybe somebody here can.

I will say that I only had references inform me when they received their reference forms to complete. Stay on top of your references ensuring they did their part.
The security background I want to say you passed if you received the Neo. That was my understanding.
You will see numerous different timelines from candidates throughout this forum. It really does help keep your mind at ease knowing that you are just in the waiting game at some points.
Good Luck!

I’ve been sifting through the forums to see that many people are waiting just like me, anyone else with the same timeline? Riding the “no news is good news” mindset till I hear back. Fingers crossed.
