Canadian Pension Fund Private Equity interviews

Does anyone have any insights about Canadian pension fund (Teacher's, CPPIB, OMERS, CDPQ) interviews for their private equity teams? Would particularly like to know more about how many rounds should be expected, type of questions asked in each round (behav, case, paper LBO, excel LBO - how long?), and any other relevant info on the process! Thanks fellow Monkeys
