    Citizenship test: Collective action required, or expect endless delays, years. Example of the effective lobbyng of people awaiting spousal sponsorship

    Do people forget that it was the Harper government who brought in Express Entry which was a huge improvement on the previous system? All major partys (except maybe for BQ) accept that immigration is key to growing Canada's economy. The biggest change I would see with a Conservative government is...

    Can someone apply Citizenship after completing eligibility and leaving temporarily for abroad?

    Don't forget you have to maintain PR status until you become citizen, which means meeting the RO.

    No update from IRCC on citizenship oath ceremony. Next steps?

    I get asked "Do you have the legal right to work in Canada?" or "Do you require sponsorship and/or visa assistance?". Once I tell them yes I have the right to work or no I don't require sponsorship, there is generally no further questions about that.

    How long is taking to receive or to accept the citizenship application?

    In normal times it would take 2-3 months to receive AOR (so as late as July in your case). Since COVID, they haven't issued any AOR since around March 15th and that was for January applications. There is no way to get update on your application before AOR is issued and it seems now that it's...

    so many questions...

    TN visas do not allow the spouse of the holder to work. But they are relatively straightforward to get once the occupation of the job offer is on the list. I agree with other replies, you should decide if Canada or USA is where you want to settle and stick with that. Trying to keep one foot in...
