I also passed the bootcamp. Does anyone know for sure if they are holding off on offers for now until this COVID stuff is over or does it mean I am not getting an offer in October for sure and may get one in the future?
The last communication we’ve received is that there is a temporary freeze. You can imagine with the downturn of aviation, which Nav relies on to get its revenue, that they are setting up to save as much $$$$ as possible. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, I’m sure it will start again eventually.

Will be interesting to see how long the wait is. I passed the October bootcamp along with 4 other people from my day. One got a VFR offer, one an IFR and the other three of us are just waiting. Sounds like the VFR course was just getting going in March and then started doing things remotely for them, no word on if they are still training or on delay. The IFR course was supposed do start May 4 but is on permanent hold.

It will be interesting to see how things play out. They have more than enough people who passed bootcamp available for training, but who knows if they just keep adding to that pool or put hiring on hold and just shift people into training.

Who knows, I would assume hiring will resume prior to full recovery of airline industry as the demand will lag for a bit after and the aim is to be staffed in time for when traffic requires it...

We have 18 months from the date we attended bootcamp to receive an offer, I feel that either it will time out, or be close to the end of that period before offers come out. The list is always growing and that is part of the frustration I remember from my last time through the process, because you never know how many people or where you are in relation to them. I have heard that as everything is now on hold indefinitely, that anyone who had assessments scheduled after the date I went (March 2020) have had them all postponed, so they will not likely be adding anyone to the pool until hiring resumes.

Probably a stupid question but you guys seem like a great community! I applied for Air Traffic Controller - Flight Service Specialist role in January 2020, and wrote the online exam they posted. I haven't heard anything back in an email or otherwise. When I check the candidate home page I see the application as "Status: Assessment". I suppose everything has passed by me by this point and I did not pass the online exam, but I figured couldn't hurt to double check with the experts here. Thanks everyone - stay happy and healthy out there!

The Status: Assessment means you passed the online test and have to wait to be contacted to take the FEAST. However now no one knows when that will be :(. Myself I passed the FEAST in February and am now waiting for the next step.

If your 18 months has expired in the last 3 or so months I would suggest you contact recruiting to see what your status actually is. Lots of Nav Canada staff have been working from home and lots of things are up in the air right now. It may take a bit of time to get an answer, but it's worth checking into.
