    For how long should someone be canadian citizen before being eligible to be guarantor for someone's canadian passport application?

    Folks, I am applying for a canadian passport too. Regarding the guarantor, the person knows for a lot more than 2 years. But he has been a canadian citizen himself for less than a year. Is that an issue, or can he still be my guarantor?

    No update from IRCC on citizenship oath ceremony. Next steps?

    Same situation here. Exam passed and in DM status since Feb 2020. Got an oath invite that got cancelled in March. Since then, nothing. When I call IRCC, they give the COVID delay reason. I feel it has become more of an excuse lately, than a legitimate reason - not to mention that they talk...

    Virtual Oath Ceremony - Scarborough Office

    Is there anyone here who received an initial oath invitation in March 2020, then got cancelled and are still waiting for the next invitation? I am wondering if I am an extra special case, or if I have company. I even applied for GCMS notes earlier this month, but no progress on that too.

    PR Card renewal amid COVID-19 scenario

    Agreed. But the process to apply for PRTD is also slow in the first place. And then adding the COVID induced delay to that, makes it even worse. No good options here. :-(

    PR Card renewal amid COVID-19 scenario

    I noticed the same thing today too. Its sad but understandable at the same time. I wanted to get the PR renewed quickly since my citizenship oath ceremony is getting delayed, and my PR is expiring in August 2020. Now with almost a 6 month processing time, neither the citizenship nor the PR...
