I'm new to this website, although I've checked it out once in a while.
Did you go to the orientation? If so, you probably have all the information you are looking for. They have really changed the program.
I've was referred to the program a year and 7 months ago. My orientation was on April 30th. In case you haven't had your orientation yet, it's just about an hour to an hour and a half of information on how the program has changed. At the end, you are asked to fill in a form to either commit to following through or not. They tell you that you will get another phone call in about 2 weeks for an intake.
I got the phone call about the next step on Thursday - my next appointment is at the beginning of June - I forget which day exactly. My understanding is that it will be an appointment with a nurse, and from there the decision will be made as to what I need to do to stay in the program. It's my understanding that from there, they may or may not put you into the surgery stream - even if they do it can still be a really long wait.
I'd be interested in hearing more about your progress through the system.
