    Lost PR Card before Oath

    The first thing they ask for when you check in for the oath ceremony is the PR card. Follow the instructions in the link about lost or stolen cards. Have the right paperwork in lieu of the card or you’ll have a problem taking the oath.

    Citizenship test FAILED. Consequences? Steps to follow

    I saw people struggling in my test group. It’s truly scandalous for anyone to fail this test as it is very easy. Application should go to back of line in such cases.

    To add, the ceremony room is big. There are two sections for visitors on either side of the room and the middle section reserved for those taking the oath. Each seat in that section is assigned to specific people taking the oath.

    A friend of mine did his interview last week. The officer wanted to know why he renewed his home country passport and travelled on it. It can become problematic because when you get protected status you become the responsiblity of Canada and technically your home country isn’t supposed to know...
