did you have to translate any of the stamps in your passport?, also do you have to send travel stamps before and after citizenship application or just the ones prior to your application?...
they tell you the time frame they want in the request letter. But yeah, some of my stamps were not in English and yes I had them translated and I sent the translation with my photocopies. and YES, it's important to translate the stamps. actually, that's all they care about.

It's just getting ridiculous! I had my test updated on July 19 and got PP request on Sep 3. Since then-just nothing. People from June 2021 are getting test invites and some people from 2019 are still waiting let alone us-Dec 2020 applicants. The whole process is so disorganized and bluntly unfair and all this bla bla crap about afghan refugees and covid is a BS- a futile effort to justify IRCC's incompetency and general disregard of basic humanity and fairness. Just better to try forget about the whole freakin process and focus on something esle. Sorry for negativity but I'm really tired of this crap.

I totally understand and fill in your shoes as I am also on the same boat but try not to think too much on it, I check once every now and then and do get discouraged so that’s why I don’t do it too often. This is for me actually the first time since I came to Canada that I get this much delay. Is just like they care more about bringing refugees than people who is already here and paying taxes ‍:(:mad:

@tgman, I completely understand how you feel. The whole process shows the height of incompetency in the Canadian Immigration system. The latest I heard is that IRCC wants to return to their 1yr processing time. Hence, applicants between say between Nov 2019 - Nov 2020 are tagged as COVID impacted applications. If that is what they want to do, how can you change it? Its bureaucracy!!! Moving forward, you have Dec 2020 applicants still waiting for their application to be completed whereas a March 2021 applicant already has his Citizenship certificate. What the hell?

Nowadays, I can't even focus on doing any productive job. I wish I don't work from home......hence, every other minute, I am checking my online tracker. This is driving me nuts. I can't even for sure say when an update is coming as the haphazard processing has made it difficult to understand what next to expect!

God, please come to our help!!!!

I've just got an invitation to take the test today, but anything else still "in progress". Anyone in the same situation?

Thank you for sharing. This state of uncertainty, endless waiting and anxiety definitely takes a toll on mental and physical well being.
They tell us to be patient. We have all been patient and resilient all these years starting from PR application. Like they know what is it like being resilient, getting everything for granted and thinking that immigrants can be treated as they please to. They don't have a clue how hard it's to get and education and work experience to become eligible to immigrate to Canada, how many years spent away from families and friends. WTF. Don't say nobody invited us here. Canada needs people.
It's not that we are not willing to wait. But there should be some basic fairness in the process. If COVID and Afghan have so much effect on IRCC processing why in the world march 2021 applicant got their certificate and people from 2019, 2020 are still waiting. Why not to finalize the earlier applications and move on. The truth is they just don't care about citizenship applicants prioritizing PR and refugees. Because Canada needs immigrants as a labor and people who rent to keep its housing bubble from bursting.
