    Do tests always include an interview?

    Yes everyone gets an 'interview'. However they call it an interview but its not like you imagine. They just go over your papers, ask you questions like if you work and have you ever had a criminal record and what your plans are. Mine was like in a stand up booth and he was asking me the...

    January 2017-Citizenship applicants

    You dont need to worry about anything. I had the same issue where on two of my arrivals into Canada my passport was not stamped. I asked the interviewer why that might be and he said that sometimes customs officers dont stamp them but its not an issue. In terms of documents take with you all the...

    Flying after Oath taking- please help!

    How desperate are you for your citizenship ceremony to be held on the 23rd? If your PR card still has a while to expire why not call and say you are not available that day for the reason you need to travel on the 26th. They will give you another date a few months down the line. Maybe thats an...

    Good Reasons to fill in gaps

    I don't think you understand clearly. Why are you asking other people? Everyones situation is unique. You need to be very careful about how you want to proceed with your application. If you are dishonest and CIC find out, that will get you in a lot of trouble.

    Applied for citizenship but Residency about to expire. What should I do?

    The only thing that expires is the card, which is essentially just a travel document. Your residency status is not affected by this. The only problem with having an expired card is when you travel and want to come back into Canada.

    Waiting for PR renewal so long

    Very normal unfortunately. 3 months after they received my application (April 2016) they sent me a letter saying it's gone for a secondary review. I got my card February 2017. Total of 11 months. They never requested more information and I had been outside of Canada for less than 3 weeks since...

    Email from CIC that PR card renewal needs secondary review

    I don't know but can't see it being more than a couple of days if they are just correcting what the typed onto the card

    How different are the online tests to the real deal?

    Congratulations on passing your test! I must disagree with one point you made. Although reading the book is ideal, I don't think it's key to passing the test. I did not read the book at all and just did practice tests online and I got 20/20 and finished it in 4 minutes. I think doing the...
