Looking for CF member and recruit experiences in regards to their wait times for archived medical files when rejoining.

Was a member of CF back in 2010 (Over 7 years out now) and wanting to rejoin Reg. Forces once again.  My recruit application is currently at a stand still while waiting on my previous medical file, which is archived in Ottawa. ( FYI "Previous medical history is clean and never had any issues")

Recruit center has confirmed my VFS already and will book my medical + interview once the medical is in. Ottawa Archives (Canadian Forces) indicated a 30 day turn around time for the request but wanted to see on a personal level what your wait times happen to be.

Looking forward to getting back into uniform and retiring as a CF member 20+ years from now.

Thanks for any input and advice. All the best

Your post / profile does not indicate how long you served in the Regular Force, but you may wish to confirm "retiring as a CF member 20+ years from now" with Recruiting.

My medical info was also archived in Ottawa, and the time from request to med appointment was about a month. Mind you, that may have been because of the Christmas holidays.

Hopefully will be about a month for myself as well.  Thanks for sharing.
