I completed my Board Review in March 2022. I've received no communication since that time. My Online Employment Application portal had not been updated since before the Review. I requested information, in writing, SEVEN times since then (twice at the CBG recruiting email, twice through the form available at Contact Us | Canadian Armed Forces
, and the other three email have been sent to three different individuals with whom I've been in contact during the application process). The response? Absolutely nothing.
I contacted the CAF Ombudsman who suggested, two weeks ago, that I write again to get the status of my application- this time, CC'ing his office. I wrote again- yet no update was sent to me. The Ombudsman then suggested I contact Canadian Forces Recruiting Group Headquarters. They reached out to the CBG on September 22 directing them to update me. To date I've receive no communication from the CBG.
Well, with this information in hand and access to my file, you now know who I am. Perhaps I should have just let the process continue on like this, and not post on Army.ca, but, if the Ombudsman and the CFRGH has gotten involved and it results in no action, I figure I have little to lose by posting and I'm sure I can't be the only one this has happened to...
If you believe that applicants are not being ghosted, you're mistaken. I've attended a few of the CBG's online information sessions. People have written in the chat asking why they've not heard back from the CAF in one year- even two years (the Moderator's response was to reach out to them again- uh-huh.).
This is incredibly unprofessional and unacceptable. If you don't want me or anyone else in the Reserves- have the decency to say it.
