If you got a request to submit that then yes. They need to see the blank pages to confirm that there are no missed stamps.

My wife and I did the test on Feb 17 and passed. We were asked to submit a translation of the non-English and french stamps on our passports.
I did that early this week.

Today, I got a letter requesting finger prints for me.

I hope this doesn't delay the process by much!

It depends case to case. Normally after fingerprint file can be delay 15 days to maximum 3 months. Good luck.

I wrote the citizenship test today. It was uneventful and straightforward. The whole commitment took a little over 3 hours because I was one of the last to be called for an interview. The test itself didn't take long but there was a long wait between the test and when they called me for the interview.

The test itself was much easier than the practice tests on prep sites. There were no trick questions. There were a couple of true/false questions and 18 MCPs.

In the interview I was asked to produce originals for the documents I had included copies for in my application. All the originals were verified. All stamps on my passport related to my trips outside Canada after becoming PR were verified.

My children's documents were not asked for nor verified (my children are under 14 so they did not need to go with me to the test), however, I had the originals for their documents with me in case they asked to see them.

Perhaps my application and paperwork was uncomplicated, therefore, most of the interview questions required me to say 'yes' or 'no'.

At the end I was told that I will receive an invite for the oath ceremony in about 3 weeks.

FYI: The last status on my ECAS still says that they started processing my case on Jan XX, 2017.

I received the test invite in my mailbox on the 26th of January. I don't know why my online status is not updated. I just turned up for the test today according to the date on the letter.
