Re: Oakville 2019

I don't know for sure if there are more invites going out or not. My opinion is there could be. Many departments will review applications as they come in and start a list of those they are considering for interviews.

Re: Barrie Fire Recruitment- 2019

Heard rumors that it went internal ... dispatchers Good on those who were hired, Barrie is the dream. Any idea if there is validity regarding a Fall recruitment? I had heard rumors of that earlier in the year, but I'm unsure if this was put to the side due to the current recruitment going on longer...
