Those receiving interviews this month, did you all apply in the original recruitment that opened back in January?

Yes, I applied somewhere in the middle of their "open period" between January - April, and I had an interview last week. I was told I'd hear back in 2-3 weeks.

They had such a high volume of applicants that I heard they were only processing the first few weeks worth of applicants for the most recent class.

They had some applicants that they liked in addition to that class of 96, they also got offers, but are waiting for this next class to start.

Now, they're processing and interviewing the remaining applicants.

These current interviews are from that recruitment. That has been the only recruitment for 2021

From the original posting and noted in the current posting:

For all st"ages (1-3) of the OFAI CTS tests, TFS will accept tests that applicants have passed on or after January 1, 2020, regardless of whether or not it has expired.
Should a successful candidate not possess any of the required OFAI CTS Certificates at the time of application, as a condition of employment, the candidate will be required to obtain a valid OFAI CTS Certificate at the candidate’s expense within a deadline as determined by TFS.
First consideration for hire will be provided to those candidates who have all stages of the OFAI CTS tests passed on or after January 1, 2020"

If your certificate met the requirements at the time of application you should be fine or will be required to get it before you start if successful in this recruitment.
I recommend booking times at OFAI now. Once Toronto re-opens booking at OFAI will be difficult.
Hope that helps
