Anyone who did psych evaluation hear back from HR? I have York test scheduled for June 27 just wondering if I should still go or not.
Same here, still haven’t heard anything back yet.
"No Thank-you's" are going out.
Good luck to all.

Any idea when they will open the new recruitment?
Nothing firm. Lots of discussions. Also when provincial and city of Toronto restrictions are lifted.

Could be soon or could be later was what I was told. They are not being coy, just simply unsure during these times.

Re: Toronto 2020

Hey All,
So the latest update. July start date is no longer. Possibly mid-August. Numbers will be dependent on the ability to run an actual recruitment including interviews, medical etc.

As usual, hang in there and keep your heads up!!!

Re: Experienced Firefighters

Markham has done this in the past 20 years. Once I know of, possibly twice.

It happens however very rarely.

Re: Toronto 2020

Opinion:
With everything going on I would predict a class even just 60% full is what the next class will be but possibly later than originally planned.
Again - just an opinion.

Really don't see a new recruitment opening for some time now.

Stay safe
