    Citizenship Ceremony Leave

    Depends upon your job. Some unionized jobs do provide it but only for half a day and you are obligated to return on active duty after the day. If unionized, check your collective/bargaining agreement otherwise talk to HR to find out.

    Changing name after recieving citizenship

    It is tough to say because you updated your Driver's license already and that was one piece of ID I provided when going for my CDN passport. If you can satisfy all the requirements for the ID, I do not see why you cannot apply. If you should or not, is a separate question.

    OCI will be made upon the basis of your CDN passport because it needs to match since your CDN passport is your travel document not OCI. Hence, it needs to match. You will need to get a provincial name change done --> get a new citizenship certificate from IRCC --> update your passport -->...

My timelines seem to clash for travel but given surrender certificate comes early i.e. in 3-4 weeks and OCI takes more time, I might just bite the bullet and apply for visa 2-3 days prior to departure...
