    Applying on Canadian passport by post

    This is stupid. They send passport by Xpresspost (why not put the certificate in that envelope too). Why mail separately ?? Not only an added expense but also very stupid to send such a document in ordinary mail. Anyway please keep a copy before sending original by mail, or wait and apply...

    yeah but this is canada and those unionized govt employees don't really give an EFF about immigrant applications. Not gonna happen unless corruption involved and some big money contract to some private corp owned by some politician or family/friend etc

    Permanently leaving Canada just after submitting my citizenship application

    No, just make sure you can get here in time for test/oath......but those seem far away at the moment, probably will take several months or yrs. Make sure you provide them an email address and a physical address too as sometimes they invite by mail But i think u have alot of time before it would...

    Applying on Canadian passport by post

    Maybe attach a certified copy (by notary) instead of original...........dont want it to get lost......getting a replacement would be a pain given delays at IRCC. Attach a certified/notarised copy if by mail. Or try apply in person thru Passport Office

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

    Testing should be scrapped anyway, specially in pandemic. Just check the documents, make sure people are eligible, and give them oath or even scrap the oath and just give them citizenship. That's easy. CommonSense. Seriously. Otherwise people will be stuck waiting months and years without PR...

    210,930 Citizenship Grant Applications PENDING - including 42,000 awaiting citizenship ceremony and 87,000 awaiting citizenship test (as of May 2020)

    IRCC needs to make some covid19 laws, and simply GRANT citizenship to those who apply. If they're too scared to do any interaction with public, then just approve/accept/grant the applications and send the certificates to the applicant's home There is absolutely no sense in making people wait...

    SPOUSAL Sponsorship PAKISTAN @ London Visa Office

    VFS offices in UK does not have anything to do with applicants from Pakistan....they only deal with uk residents. For people in Pakistan, they would need VFS in Isb, Lahore and Khi to be open (which I doubt right now). Even if CHC-London opened and processes applications, you still need to...

    If you have their contact email or phone #, send them email or call them to inquire. Ask them if they have mailed it out and how long it would take to receive certificate and whether its been sent as registered or ordinary mail. At least they should've sent/emailed an electronic copy too
