    Elections and Voting

    Does anyone know how long it takes for Elections Canada to update? I took my oath 2 months ago and I'm still not registered.

    October 2020 - Citizenship Applicants

    Winnipeg is also hosting ceremonies for other cities. My office was Vancouver yet my oath was with Winnipeg, so it seems they're shuffling cases around at least.

    In breach of RO, going on vacation to Canada in May

    I've entered Canada using only my US Passport while having Canadian PR numerous times and it usually goes like this: CBSA: What brings you to Canada? me: I live and work here. CBSA: Work visa? me: PR CBSA: okay welcome home

    Virtual Oath Ceremony

    You're not sure why they are validating identity for something as serious as legally taking an oath?? Literally no one does anything of this magnitude without verifying ID. I work for a local govt and we won't even issue a business licence without seeing valid proper ID.

    Virtual Oath Ceremony

    Realistically it takes longer than a month after you get the certificate to apply and receive your passport unless you request Urgent/Express processing and have a valid reason for it.

    Virtual Oath Ceremony

    1. What is the EDT (Canada) time zone. Is it Eastern Daylight Time ? Yes 2. Can my spouse attend the ceremony together with me, or should it be separate? Does the spouse need to login on a different machine and do the process? You can log in on the same machine assuming you both have a 'seat...

    Question Regarding Language Requirement: Application for Citizenship

    You are fine. I have two degrees from the US and never once specified it would be in English. The officers really do apply common sense to things like that.

    Canadian Passport in person timeline

    I had an 11:00 appointment this morning in the Vancouver office. Got there at 10:50 and walked out at 12:10 for an urgent processing (I fly next week). The lines are ridiculous and security has no concept of how to triage or stage people into lines. The officers are also quizzing everyone on why...

    Post Oath and after receiving Canadian Citizenship Certificate can US Citizen Travel to US and then back to Canada

    You can- I have had this confirmed by CBSA and the Passport office. Take your certificate with you-- if you don't have your certificate by then, you may run into issues because you have no paperwork proving you're Canadian. However if you have NEXUS, do NOT use it until you can update it with...

    Did ATIP request but no news since October

    Same. I did get an email saying they had extended the deadline a few months ago, and then nothing since. I assume since my file is closed out now they'll never send them.

    That's what I figured. That's a highly convenient way for them to make sure they're able to charge the higher fees IMO.

    Canadian Passport in person timeline

    Has anyone had an urgent passport request for Vancouver, Surrey or Richmond? I'm flying out the 28th but the earliest online appointment is May 17. Online says the three aren't accepting walk-ins, but online also says to walk-in for a faster appointment if you're flying within a certain amount...

    Update citizenship in NEXUS

    I'm a NEXUS member and recently got this email: Dear NEXUS Member, We are pleased to inform you that NEXUS interviews will resume at enrolment centres in the United States (US) on April 19, 2022. Applicants wishing to schedule interviews can now do so at their nearest US enrolment centre...

    Citizenship Certificate After Oath

    The Winnipeg office sends an auto-response every time. I think the easy answer here is it's IRCC and they do what they wish when they wish.

    Citizenship Certificate After Oath

    Update on my certificate. I emailed the IRCC office a few minutes ago to inquire when/if the certificate had been mailed and explained again it is urgent. I received the standard "we will not reply" auto-response, but then received a second email that had a weird txt file. They actually replied...
