I’m starting to wonder if the provincial cuts to Toronto services like child care, education and public health will mean that the city will need to look for cuts elsewhere, like fire services. I wonder if it will affect recruit classes...
The 2019 budget has already been approved. All the cuts will probably affect the 2020 budget. And with nearly 90% of the budget being for front line staff and operations, cuts will most likely come from either hiring freezes, loss of job through attrition, or collective agreement bargaining. But the 2019 recruit classes should be safe. That's just me speculating though.
Yeah, you’re right. Will be interesting to see how things change for future classes if this continues though

Usually about a week or so, but they've done it in years past where they send out an invite literally the day before. Hopefully invites this week

How long after applying do they send out the Doc request. I applied a couple weeks ago. Or does the posting need to close first.

I applied in January shortly after the posting opened and got the doc review request in April.

They've sent out doc requests before while they were doing interviews, but I'm the same as Medic....applied the day they opened in January, doc review April 2nd. And now many anxious weeks later still waiting for an interview invite
