Squad 54 started two weeks ago. Have heard any other squads have been put on hold until the next promotions process is completed and more retirements occur. Up 10-12 firies on all shifts with another 24 from the current squad coming online in May. A liberal government won’t let the MFS hold onto any more surplus firies.

Anyone know where things are at these days? When does the next squad start or when they are interviewing next?
Thanks

Keep a look out if you got the “Stay fit” letter.
I haven’t received anything yet, but my friend just received an email saying they are no longer in the “Stay fit” pool.

I got a letter saying my application is not progressing today too. At the very least I can stop putting alternatives on hold now!

Are you allowed to reapply when (if) they reopen applications mid this year as previously advised they would?

I too got an email saying my application will not be progressed, they specifically state this result remains valid for 2 years and will expire in July 2020 at which time I can reapply again.

So even if they do reopen applications this year those of us receiving this email are ineligible to reapply.

Sorry to hear guys.
I'm in the 'stay fit' pool and still haven't received anything.
Not sure if that's a good thing or not!

You may be in numbers for 3rd squad depending on how many suitable applicants they get in July......

Is there a 2nd squad scheduled to start after the completion of the 1st squad, which should be finishing in early May?
