Recommendations for Applying

  • Stay informed of any planned hiring or application periods, by regularly checking this page.
  • Carefully review all the recruitment information as it contains all the steps and stages of the recruitment and selection process that applicants will be required to follow.
  • Applicants may be asked to provide the originals of any/all credentials referred to in their application at any time through the selection process, therefore it is advisable to ensure all certificates and required documents are readily available. If you cannot produce documents when required, you will not continue in the selection process.
  • All credentials must be valid and current as of the application deadline date. Failure to provide original proof of credentials when requested will result in disqualification from the selection process.
  • Should an applicant be successful in the selection process, they will be asked to submit a Criminal Records Check, which must be cleared by Toronto Fire Services before any firm offer of employment is extended to the applicant. Getting a Criminal Records Check document from your local police department may take some time. You can start this process sooner, but doing so is completely voluntary.
  • Successful applicants will be required to participate in a comprehensive medical examination with the Chief Medical Officer of Toronto Fire Services. Applicants may want to have a medical consultation with their own physician prior to applying, but doing so is completely voluntary.
