My problem wasn't with the questionnaire or if I was require to go through Pre-sec. When I called in I was told I had been deemed "Required". I knew I was required but nobody was contacting me for the information to actually send it to Ottawa so I basically had to pursue the issue myself and bother them enough until they sent it. Thank you for the time range, I'm gonna take your advice and just call in once every 6 weeks or so to show interest.DAA said:It's pretty simple. After completing the Pre-Sec Questionnaire, you wait. If it so happens that the response to questionnaire results in you being subject to the Pre-Sec process, then you submit the 330-60. Your CFRC submits that to Ottawa and then the waiting begins. Wait times vary and can range from 2-24 months depending on the country(s) involved."
DAA said:The questionnaire that you filled out, will be sent to another office in Ottawa who will decide whether or not you will be subject to a full Pre-Sec.
Bartan said:I'm a little confused, which questionnaire are you talking about? The only thing I have filled out and submitted was my on-line employment application. Am I supposed to have already filled Pre-Enrolment Security Clearance Pre-Assessment Questionnaire or do I wait for them to tell me to fill it out? On the Forces.ca website under "Apply Now" they talk about the Pre-Enrolment Security Clearance Pre-Assessment Questionnaire under step 6 and I'm not even done step 2 yet because they haven't asked me to contact my local recruiting centre.
Thank you for the reply by the way.

In the very near future (if not already in some area's) a new company has been contracted to perform the background checks.
Trades always reopen in April, but the pre-assessment takes 1-2 years anyway - longer than annual selection cycle. I don't know if change trades could accelerate the process (from LOG to NCMs, anyway the pre-assessment is unavoidable).Buck_HRA said:If you've applied for an occupation that is currently closed for processing, you won't be seen until the occupation opens again. If you've applied to a CFRC that is at maximum processing capacity at the moment and you've applied for an occupation that isn't identified as priority you won't be seen until the CFRC is able to process more files. You should contact your particular CFRC and ask them how long of a wait you should expect before having your appointment.
