They don’t really say. Here is the info. Basically it says to join and go through the testing. Because afaik it’s not just mental testing but there is physical testing that they would want to make sure you could do. My daughter graduated from cadets and just in that they marched around for almost 4 hrs straight and then they would do outdoor survival stuff camping in the extreme hot or sleeping in cold. Kids fainted all the time, my daughter fainted once. Health is number one thats why they want to test you. Send in an application it’s worth a try if it’s something you really want to do. Good luck. :)

I presume you are asking about the Canadian armed forces. Adults with unmedicated schizophrenia would most likely be refused from any armed forces. Even if medicated, such persons are likely to be unpredictable under stressful situations.
