    To be honest, I don't remember. If yes, then nothing very specific. Once again, as long as you are truthful there is no issues.

    August 2019 - Citizenship Applicants

    I did not update address, since I own the house and rest of my family lives in the house IRCC had the address for in their books. From the link above: "We usually only mail letters, notices and other documents to addresses in Canada." Based on my experience and instructions from IRCC, I don't...

    Yes a flew back twice. There was less than month between the flights and not much lead time either. Cpouple of weeks lead time if I remember correct. I didn't explain being abroad and it's not forbidden to leave Canada during application process as long as you have valid PR to the end of the...

    I actually left Canada after I had sent my application and returned to do the test and oath. Because I'm still working abroad, after oath I had to get Canadian passport to be able to return to Canada, since during oath you have to give up PR including card. I just made sure I'm able to fly back...

    I never received an email for oath. Paper mail only. I don't know why, but probably because oath had two different colour papers. Blue and pink based on which side you go on oath at Scarborough.

    Oath Ceremony experiences?

    They watch you move your lips and nothing else. No need to be able to speak the language at all. The oath is done both in French and English. I'm pretty sure most of the people don't know both and it is still not problem at all.

    I honestly read it half way day day before and rest of it while sitting on taxi on my way to the test. I do encourage to read it twice before the test so there’s less stress. But to be honest, the test is really easy and I would have passed it easily without reading the book at all. Read it at...

    After you have Canadian citizenship you can even move to totally another country for rest of your life and you will still keep your citizenship. For rest of your life. You never lose citizenship. If you wouldn't be allowed to leave the country, for what would you need passport in the first place?

    November 2018 - Citizenship Applications

    Did the test today. I read the booklet once yesterday. I actually think I skipped some parts. 18/20, so if you aim for better score, better read twice or concentrate. Doesn’t really matter, because it was enough to pass. I was a bit surprised that they asked for landing docs, which I didn’t...
