How to Get Students IN  1. Register them on OnSORTS.ca 2. I will send electronic copies of the applications to the provided address, and will post them on the Co-Op and Guidance CHATT icons. 3. Have students complete paperwork, check it briefly, photocopy their identification & print an OFFICIAL Student Transcript. I will post dates shortly, to collect packages and meet with students. (I will also scan Student Identification)
How to Get Students IN  Students are JOINING the ARMY! They will become members of the Canadian Forces. The first step is to complete the paperwork, with attention to detail. The Recruiting Centres will not process incomplete paperwork, and will not necessarily let candidates know in a timely manner.
How to Get Students IN  The Canadian Forces RECRUITING PROCESS: 1.Students write an Aptitude Test – language, math & spatial ability. NO CALCULATORS ALLOWED 2.Students undergo a Medical Examination/Screening. (Family History, Major illnesses or injuries, etc.)
