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

    Canada doesn't have universal healthcare - it's a hybrid public/private system that is extremely broken. EI isn't socialism, it's insurance, with premiums that are deducted from our paychecks. UBI is the state interfering with and attempting to control the means of income and production...

    Nothing. The office went quiet again. Now with new masking mandates, they'll have more reasons to sit around at home doing nothing and getting paid for it.

    All I can say is that Edmonton office is the slowest office in all Canada. :(

    For everyone who thinks that mandatory vaccination is "da bomb" and going to make IRCC function better: you do realize this is going to cause mass firings and wrongful dismissal law suits? This is going to clog up and slow down the process even further. Files shuffled all around the office as...

    I'm still thinking of going down there. Tracker now shows test and background completed. No action since July 13. Someone can take a few minutes and push a few keys on the keyboard. :mad: I'm thinking of being downtown Edmonton at Canada Place this Thursday from 8 am to 2 pm with a banner.

    I would suggest checking the old eCAS system at https://services3.cic.gc.ca/ecas/introduction.do?app=ecas to see if your application status is either "In Process" (might still need an interview) or "Decision Made" (oath ceremony next).

    No updates from me. Fingerprint report should be on its way to IRCC Vancouver - I sent a status update request to RCMP to make sure. My Citizenship test score hasn't been made official yet either. :(

    Here's another pro tip: telling someone who's concerned and curious to "not be concerned" about their application seldom helps. Information does.

    Oath updates? No. I'm hoping that they'll resume soon. I now passed my Citizenship test (20 out of 20), and fingerprints will be done in a few minutes. Hopefully we'll all get an oath ceremony soon

    Can you look at the email address the test invite came from and verify it was Edmonton office?

    You should probably call IRCC to verify that.. Some people have been getting similar notices in the new tracker but no email.

    I'm planning on going downtown within the next couple weeks to sit outside the office with a banner. I don't know if that will help, but maybe if there are a few of us the media might notice?

    Well, that's more info than ECAS. But still disappointing. Only "Background Verification" done, and it's over a year old.
