When the board software was switched this year, this FAQ list had to be duplicated to match the new URL's. Most of those links have been duplicated in subsequent posts in this very thread. However, if there is something that you're looking for that hasn't been linked in this list, let me know and I will try to find it.

This FAQ list in reality is more of a list of things that it's occurred to me have been asked more than once. It's nothing official and you're likely to still have to use the search function ( http://actuary.ca/actuarial_discussi...um/search.php? ) for most searches of the board.

You're too quick for me! I was just about to go edit my post with a "I guess I should read the entire thread before replying."

Actually, one question that I still have is - how long does it typically take to find a job? For a "zero-prior actuarial experience, only 1 exam" chum like me? Range of months, I assume.
