Any updates on the fall class after the budget cuts? Any info is always appreciated. Thanks!
Everything is up in the air. Current information is that the start date for the August class may be postponed due to budget and not being able to do medicals. The doctor is booked with NHL players. (He is the doc for the Leafs and another team now.)

This is the current thinking, nothing is for sure but it appears it could be the path.

If a large number of retirements occur then a class could be set for early in 2021.
Also, the budget is the other huge item. If you live in the city of Toronto call or email your local councillor and express your concern over cuts to the fire service.

You can be a part of the team ahead of being hired!
Keep your heads up and let's ope for new developments !!

BUT WAIT!

As I have said many times things can change on a moment's notice with any department recruitment.
Stand by for a possible and I say possible announcement about a Fall class, (moved from August) and new recruitment.

Fall class will be those who are waiting for a medical.
Recruitment will be for 2021.

This is all tentative but is being discussed.
