It will happen. Good luck to both of you. I am not the most patient of people, in fact, a favourite mantra of mine that my other half hears frequently, is "I hate waiting". In these circumstances though, you get limited choices on waiting. I moved up my civilian Dr. appointment, but moving the RC faster is not in my power  :'(. More time to improve fitness, which I need.

Yes indeed mariomike.  And I have some experience with that particular circumstance, so I wait (as patiently as I can). ::)

I hope the process goes fast for you DJ.  I've been in the queue a year and a half now, due to some bureaucratic delays.  Today the selection board for my trade sits, so I am hoping to finally get the notice for when I leave.  However, in the meantime, I too am trying to improve my fitness.  I work for an accounting firm, and some days it's hard to find the time to exercise after 12-14 hours in the office.

It's been pretty quick so far. I only re applied back in October. My civ medical is next Thursday and everything else is complete. If everything goes smooth I could still conceivably get an offer for March 25th, however I am thinking more likely April or May. 
Finding time for fitness is tough. I work downtown in the "Big Smoke" and it takes about 40 minutes on the subway, plus a minimum half hour in the car to get to and from the subway. By the time I make it home, I don't want to head to the gym; there's dinner to prepare, kids to pick up from work and so on.
I did download an app called FitStar, which links to my fitbit. I can do short intense workouts (with instruction) in 7 to 20 minutes and burn 300-800 calories in that time. No equipment necessary and I can do it in my bedroom.  Saves me the drive to the gym and the struggle to get equipment access. Also, our gym is right beside a GO transit station, so access to the gym itself is a pain in the rear at times. As a side note, it's also WAY cheaper than the gym and I still get to choose my workout type. No annoying unsupervised children, no doofuses sitting on equipment just playing with their phone, no people who forgot to wear deodorant, no random creepy guy walking around in street clothes ogling all the women with a weird grin on his face.....

May I also suggest checking out some videos on youtube by "Athlean-X" and "calisthenicsmovement"? They have great demonstrations and sample at-home workouts that are extremely effective for all types of fitness goals. Keep it up!

Good luck with that, sincerely.

I work downtown in the "Big Smoke" and it takes about 40 minutes on the subway, plus a minimum half hour in the car to get to and from the subway.

If you commute via the Don Valley Parkway or Gardiner Expressway, after this morning's announcement from the province, I wouldn't expect traffic congestion or transit in the "Big Smoke" to improve any time soon.

Premier Wynne just vetoed Mayor Tory's plan to toll the Don Valley Parkway and Gardiner Expressway to fund transit improvements.

She says he can’t have tolls until transit is improved, and he says he can’t improve transit without money from tolls.  :)

"40 per cent of the vehicles on the Gardiner and DVP each day are from outside Toronto."

I don't take either the Don Valley Parking Lot or the Gar Damn Expressway  ;D. I live in Markham so I usually do surface streets to Finch Station and subway from there. When my other half drives we take the 404 to Steeles and over to Finch Station.
I think that tolling a road that was already paid for and, from what I understand, needs an overhaul itself, is just not the way to do it. As for improving transit; they just jacked the prices again recently and it all looks like a money grab from any angle.

Money that would have been used to improve transit.

Kathleen Wynne’s announcement of no tolls for Toronto sparked joy in surrounding communities and hammered a wedge into the previously cosy political relationship between her and John Tory.
https://www.thestar.com/news/queenspark/2017/01/29/turnabout-could-take-toll-on-kathleen-wynnes-relationship-with-john-tory.html

The Gardiner,  DVP and subway were built by Metro 60 years ago. They were never intended to carry the traffic and passenger volume of today. 40 per cent of which is from out of town.

Those tolls would have not only helped to maintain them, the money would be used to build new transit.

Metrolinx has some exciting plans, but the money has to come from somewhere.
Personally, I would like to see the Gardiner and DVP and TTC uploaded to the province.
Our city employees can continue maintenance, operations, and emergency service, as they always have.

Hopefully, you will soon be on your way to the airport for BMQ. Good luck!

I agree with you, the volume of passengers on the subway from Finch to College and back, and not even at "rush hour", is incredible.

I do hope to be on a plane soon.  Thinking April is a possibility, May is more likely, end of March is a very unlikely pipe dream as I have noticed people are getting their calls for the last BMQ in March now and I complete my extra medical requirements this Thursday. Then those have to be vetted through the system before merit list and subsequent offer.

I will get there eventually.

Completed blood work and ECG along with a general check up yesterday. Test results should be in today for blood work and Tuesday the 7th for ECG.  My Doctor's office will call me once they have faxed all forms to the RC. If I have not heard from them by the 9th, I should call them.

After that, I just wait for the med approval round trip, merit list and finally a call. I hope it goes quickly.

Good morning all,

My doctor's office phoned me on Monday February 6th to let me know they had all test results and were faxing them off to the RC. I also faxed in my optical paperwork, so all is now in the hands of the medical staff and my job is to wait patiently and keep working out. At this point I will email for an update on the 17th if I haven't heard anything. Hoping for a spot in April....

Well, I have heard something, at least. Not a job offer yet. I have to write a letter detailing the reasons why I released, what I have done to rectify the issues I had and what I have done since releasing, in regards to improving my qualifications. That will be emailed in either tomorrow or over the weekend. My process is at a halt until the letter is received and approved. I am still hoping for April. I have certainly not just been sitting on my behind, waiting to reapply for the last year and a half, so I don't think the letter will be a problem. From what I have read on these forums, it is something one has to do when reapplying after a voluntary release. I just thought it would have been requested before this point. So be it. Things happen when they need to. Forward march.

Ok, so with everything going on in my life at the moment, the letter finally got finished and emailed in last night.  It should be received by it's recipient this morning, or at least as soon as he checks his email. One small issue that I hope does not mess all things up, is that my spell check told me that re-enrolment is spelled re-enrollment. On hind-sight, of course AFTER the letter was sent, I realized this is incorrect.  Sigh. Stupid spell check  :-[ . Here's to hoping they can overlook that one thing.  :facepalm:

I wouldn't sweat the spelling of enrolment. Canadian usage is enrolment. The American spelling of enrollment is commonly used in Canada as well.

Back when I was a recruiter, that sort of thing wouldn't even merit second glance or thought.  No big deal.

It was the CVs or emails written in phone text speak or things like the proper use of there and their (especially when it was DEO applicants) that gave me pause.  Or even using too much familiarity when sending emails like "Hey, can I get an update on my file?"

Don't sweat it.

It is a rather professional letter, if I do say so myself, considering that I am working as a finance administrator already. The spelling issues are a pet peeve of mine. I usually don't even bother with spell check (I am that good at spelling  ;)). This time, my email highlighted it as incorrect, but Word did not. Therefore, my email has the double l and my letter in Word format does not. I will henceforth not worry about a word that is spelled correctly in either case and be happy that it is spelled the one way in the letter and the other in the email. I suppose. Nope. Still bugs me.  :facepalm:

Today, I have received an email informing me that I am in final processing and once granted reliability status will be added to the merit list (aka: competition list). It has been suggested that I check back every couple weeks in case of status changes. Things are moving right along  :D.

Huzzah!

Hopefully you won't be stuck on the merit list as long as this DEO candidate has been!

Congrats Deskjockey43.  This is a very proud accomplishment.  I have been following your post regularly, so though we don't know each other, I feel a great sense of pride for you today.

Please continue to keep us up to date :)

Thanks!!  I am looking forward to getting that call. I hope you get yours soon too. You have been waiting a long time!
I will definitely keep posting my progress up to leaving for BMQ. After that, it may be some time before I have time to post again.

I'm following this too!

I'm also on the last "check" through Garda as of the beginning of this week. I'm not sure how long Garda likes to take doing these things, but I'm basically just waiting to get merit listed from this point!

Best of luck to you! :)

I just received an email requesting proof that my koodo account has been paid in full or payments are being made. I cancelled/closed out that account in Sept/Oct 2016. All I have for proof is the final bill. I was not sent a confirmation of cancellation as far as I can recall, but no further bills after Oct 9 2016 are on my koodo self-serve page. I sent what I have, here's hoping it's enough.
