Experienced Firefighters

Postby geebsy » Mon May 25, 2020 1:51 pm

Does anyone know of departments in Ontario that will hire experienced firefighters and pay them above probationary rate?

Thanks!

maybe 1 or 2 departments do, but all departments go off of a CBA so its extremely doubtful. you'll unfortunately have to start at a probie rate (class 5 firefighter in most cities). Policing you can do a lateral move and switch departments with same pay, fire you can't.

Barrie was the only dept to my knowledge that did this. Only reason is that they didnt have a training division, and alot of full timer's applied with experience.

To todays standards, i dont know of any dept that does it in Ontario.

Thanks

From what I can find it’s mentioned in the CBA for Markham, Hamilton and Halton Hills. Seems like that not be the current reality though.

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

It happens however very rarely.
