What does my status mean?
During or after the completion and submission of your application, you may see different statuses assigned to your profile. These statuses, and their meanings, are found below.
Application in progress: You started the on-line application process, but did not complete it. Make sure you click the “Finish” button before printing your application.
Application submitted: You have completed the on-line application and submitted it electronically. Please also print it and send the hard copy to your provincial or territorial coordinator, along with all supporting documents.
Candidate missing documents: You have sent in your application, but there are one or more missing or ineligible documents. Please contact your provincial or territorial coordinator for more details.
Application submitted after the deadline: You sent in your application after the deadline, or your application was postmarked after the deadline. Please note that as long as your application is postmarked on or before February 28, it will be accepted, even if we receive it after the deadline.
Candidate waiting to be interviewed: Your application and supporting documents have been received and are in order. Your provincial or territorial coordinator will contact you shortly to set up an interview.
Candidate absent at interview: You were invited to an interview but failed to appear. If you wish to apply again next year, make sure the e-mail and postal addresses we have on file for you are kept up to date so that information will reach you in a timely fashion.
Application transferred to another jurisdiction: You sent in your application, had a successful interview, and your file has been transferred to the coordinator of one of your chosen jurisdictions. This does not mean that you have been offered a position. The coordinator of the jurisdiction to which your file has been sent will review it and make a decision sometime between May and August. Each jurisdiction receives more files than it has positions available, so if you are not offered a position, you will be placed on a waiting list.
Candidate on host jurisdiction waiting list: You sent in your application, had a successful interview, and your file was transferred to the coordinator of one of your chosen jurisdictions. However, since each jurisdiction receives more files than it has positions available, your file has been placed on a waiting list. If a position becomes available in the months ahead, the coordinator will contact you.
Candidate on home jurisdiction waiting list: You sent in your application and had a successful interview. However, your host province has received its maximum number of candidate files, so your file has been placed on a waiting list in your home jurisdiction.
Application accepted: You applied, had a successful interview, and have been offered a position. Congratulations!
