2013 Mississauga

Hey all was looking at Mississaugas website and it said possible recruitment in early march or April 2013. Any news breaks?

They just finished interviews for a class that is supposed to start April 1st. Once that class is running then they will likely post for a new recruitment and create a new list. Names will be taken off the new list for a class probably in the new year unless a lot of people retire, but right now I've heard they aren't planning another class this year. No one really knows but that's what is floating around. Good luck to everyone that just had interviews and to those waiting to apply.

When I talked to HR last week they told me more like June or July.

Swimming proficiency

Postby Holmsie88 » Thu Mar 21, 2013 1:22 pm

I was wondering if anyone who has gone through Mississauga's recruitment previously could shed some light on a question that I have. I completely understand why they have "be able to swim proficiently" as a requirement for the job. What I am wondering is do they use York's swim test(where once you have completed it, you do not have to complete it again) or do they have their own adaption of what they want for a swim test? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It was: a certain amount of laps, no time limit, any style. Pretty easy.

The swim test at York is 8 lenghts of the 25m pool, any style, and take all the time in the world, if you need it. (I did!)

It is supposed to be good for life. I have no idea if Mississauga accepts that portion if you have it, or not. They don't accept previous fitness assessments.

Mississauga's site has been updated to state "Firefighters - our next recruitment campaign will take place as early as September/October 2013." I guess the wait continues.

Probably due to the changes with the Province going to the NFPA standard, and the likelihood of a centralized recruitment process...
