hi there,

I hope you managed to move forward with your application.
Could tell me who specifically deals with applications from overseas? I am based in France and plan to apply to teh CAF soon

Thanks for your help

Best regards,


Just apply online and the OUTCAN recruiter will contact you once application is received. Busy  going through the process now.

Hello. I am very interested in the idea and the process of joining the Canadian Forces. I am doing quite a bit of research and I am finding these forums to be quite helpful.

My main concern is regarding myself and my double citizenship. I was born in Canada but shortly after our family moved to Russia where my parents and ancestors are from. I have both Russian and Canadian citizenships, and I have lived in Russia in the past 10 years for a longer time than I have lived here in Canada, second year going forward. I am fluent in both languages which can be a bonus for my career's future. I was wondering how this will affect my Application and Recruiting process. How will it affect it time-wise and will it directly change the chances of me joining the CF?

I shall thank all of the responders in advance.

How will dual citizenship affect application processing time

If you have ever lived outside Canada or have an immediate family member who currently lives outside Canada: You will be asked to fill out the “Pre-Enrolment Security Clearance Pre-Assessment Questionnaire”.  You should be prepared to provide adequate, verifiable information for the last 10 years. This information is used to determine if a Security Clearance Pre-Assessment is required, especially if you:
•have dual citizenship
•if you lived, worked, studied or travelled outside of Canada in the last 10 years for a total of at least 180 days
•if you have a child, parent, step-parent, spouse, in-laws, brother or sister (half & step) living outside of Canada

If a Clearance Pre-Assessment is required, it can take between 6 to 18 months to complete.

Reliability screening: the reliability screening and security check will take longer if you lived in another country or if you have a criminal record.

As always, Recruiting is your most trusted source of information.

I am going through the process now. Here are the steps so far for anyone interested:

Day 1 - Applied online and received confirmation e-mail almost immediately
Day 2 - Received an OUTCAN confirmation e-mail with some basic questions to fill out, which I did
Day 3 - Received an e-mail stating I am not eligible for a CF funded trip back to Canada to go through the steps (fair enough! I certainly wasn’t expecting it!). In the e-mail were instructions to e-mail CFRC Toronto for an appointment. Having done the CFAT somewhat recently (I bottled it on my application in 2015) I don’t have to do that again.
Day 15 – Waiting for a response. I am back to Vancouver to visit family in August so ideally I’d be able to do my interview and medical then. If not I can go to Toronto for work pretty much anytime and just stay an extra couple days to go through the steps.

If anyone knows a direct number to speak to anyone in the Toronto office that would be helpful as I haven’t been successful in getting through on the numbers they provided. Feel free to DM me.

Cheers
