On Friday I received a firm offer email stating that all of my pre-employment conditions have been cleared, and also received payroll forms to fill out a few hours later. In the email it said at this time the start date is Monday, November 2nd and I would be receiving further information in regards to the first day in the coming weeks.
Sounds exciting my friend! Congrats! Time is fast approaching

Anyone knows about class length from past recruitments?
I assume we'll be getting that info as well as our daily start time soon. Was just curious.

Just going off the last recruit class, but I’m guessing it will be approximately 18 weeks of training (finishing around mid-March) and then 1 month at a training hall in one command, and another month at a training hall in a different command before we’re told what our actual full-time station will be... again just guesstimating around late May - early June before that happens. Let’s all buckle in and get ready for the ride! Excited to say the least. Hopefully we learn more about first day this upcoming week. Stay safe and stay healthy.

Toronto seems to be severely understaffed, big hire in the works ?

I think I just read an article about being 14 trucks short per shift and they requested more staff. As that doesn't even include retirees
But the way ofai is going there wouldn't be a big pool to pick from that are up to date

Toronto is always short staffed, trucks out of service, other vehicles less a body... however big changes in the works, exciting times ahead! Wanting to bump squads to 4 people, in addition to other vehicles like the haz and towers!

In addition to removing the 4 command structure!

only 2 trucks will be rolling to alarm calls now too with sprinklered buildings! Finally no longer will I have to hear 5 trucks screaming down the road at 3 in the morning, not a car in sight and yet sirens blaring...!
