At this point, yes. The ROTP campaign has only just kicked off. Some Recruiting Centres received ROTP files early, thus a limited few have heard from their local CFRC.

If you submitted your application to the CF and are applying for ROTP 2014 (ie; RMC) prior to, for safety sake, 1 Oct 13 and you have NOT received the "valid" link to the RMC Portal, which is needed to upload your documents and Questionnaire, then you need to contact your supporting CFRC right away to obtain the new link.
To make it as simple as possible for people to understand, this is the application process for ROTP 2014:
Step 1 - Submit your "online" application to the CF through www.forces.ca and select "ROTP" as the "Entry Plan"......(your on your own for the rest)
Step 2 - You will receive an auto-generated email, which is standard for "everyone" who applies to the CF, don't worry about it for now, but print it/save it and keep it handy...;
Step 3 - Within 48-72 hours of applying ONLINE, it could be slightly longer in some cases, nevertheless, you WILL receive a "follow-up" email from Recruiting which provides you with the link to the RMC Portal which includes further instructions on how to procced. You need to READ these instructions and do EXACTLY what the follow-up instructions are asking you to do!!! Do NOT go back to "Step 2" <------- or you won't get past GO and collect $200.00. This is the "critical" part of the process!!!;
Step 4 - Follow the instructions contained in the follow-up email at Step 3 to a "T" and then like everyone says, sit and wait. You will NOT receive any further confirmations beyond Step 3...
After you have reached Step 3 and if you haven't heard anything from your "local" CFRC within 14 days, you need to contact them right away. If you have not gone beyond Step 2, you need to contact Recruiting in North Bay.....
I can't stress the importance of taking your time filling out these applications! It is NOT like applying to a Civilian University. My recommendation for what it's worth.......print the applications, if you can, do them in "draft" and then do them again, have someone else review them and then when you feel it is your best effort, "hit" the send button!!! You are "selling" yourself, so sell the CF your best self because that's all the CF tries to buy!!!
Teen_Cadet said:Oh okay! Thank you so much DAA. I will wait for that email!
Paul_Ontario said:Hey DAA, I applied for RMC ROTP 2014 and mailed in my files to CFRC Northbay, now the files are transferred to CFRC Hamilton. Should I be expecting a email with a link to the RMC portal or should I call my local CFRC and ask them?
ZeiGezunt said:Wait, you can submit more than one application? I sent mine off in a bit of a hurry (I'm excited, what can I say) and there are a few revisions that could be made.
Also, how competitive a trade is Armoured or Infantry? Like I said, I think my application is good, but it might not be good enough.
t.robichaud said:Can someone please give me some advice and who I should talk to? Some members of RMC should be at my school this week with the traveling mini-University fair.
t.robichaud said:I have called my recruiting center multiple times (CFRC Hamilton) and have been informed that they have received my application from North Bay, but because RMC is a low priority for them right now they are still waiting another week or two before calling people to book aptitude tests and medicals.
