I’ve heard from multiple Toronto Firefighters that they are really geared towards hiring minoritys and being a white male getting in is very difficult. I really hope this isn’t the case. Anyone else heard anything like this?

This is the best rumour out there. Take a look at the current recruit class, "the most diverse class ever" and the majority are white males.
People love to spread crap.

I would think based on the past that TFS HR will contact all of the best candidates who have applied when they reach a sufficient amount for a hiring. They will then likely do a documentation check and then send out invites for interviews after prerequisites check out.

I think you meant to say chosen at random and not best available candidate. HR fully admits it’s a lottery system as they simply don’t have enough time to look at all applications

FACT! Just don’t want people to second guess their applications and beat themselves up.
