INTERVIEW EXPERIENCE: Just completed mine. Used MS Teams in Chrome (opens on clicking the link in the interview invite). Try the link a few minutes before time (like 5-10) just to check everything is working. I was told you can join again using the same link if you get disconnected during the interview. The interview took only around 5 minutes. The immigration agent was very nice and friendly. I was only asked to show the ID's and documents submitted with the application, along with confirmation of some information submitted in the application. Was allowed to ask questions in the end, so I asked two:

1) When can I expect the oath?
Sometime in April

2) Why I can't check the application status online?
Online applicants do have this issue. They are working on it.

In case anyone is wondering why some online applicants (like myself) have had very fast processing - I was told a few very early online applicants were chosen and their applications are being expedited through the new process to test it out. The speed for these test cases should not be compared to those who applied before and after.

My timeline:
App submission - 4th Dec 2020 - Online (Toronto) [Not Urgent]
AOR email - 3rd Feb 2021
Test invite email - 24th Feb 2021
Test taken - 2nd March 2021
Interview invite email - 16th March 2021
Interview - 30th March 2021

Good luck everyone :)

Yes, I checked the spam folder and I also called IRCC. They mentioned that there aren't any applications in their system at this moment and that I should wait until next month.

Even after AOR they can't find their application in their system. It looks like online system is not connected to their main system which is common for any new software/application which is still in testing phase.

In case anyone is wondering why some online applicants (like myself) have had very fast processing - I was told a few very early online applicants were chosen and their applications are being expedited through the new process to test it out.

Damn I knew this would happen. Which is exactly why I was killing myself to submit the application but it simply wouldn't submit. But that's life haha

Congrats mate! Glad to see the early appliers rewarded for their haste.

Thank you :) In my case I was already reading all the rules and filling my paper application in early Dec. I had completed most of the app but with the process being so much time taking, I was doing it in parts over a few days when I stumbled upon the online app, which seemed a lot easier to fill and submit, so I just went with it haha

@CCAI2021, nice one going for you.

I just have a quick follow-up question based on what the IRCC officer told you about the quick process for early applicants. Just to be sure, was her statement borderline clear on the early applicants? If so, can you speculate on how early is early? I meant was it Dec 1 to Dec 4 or Dec 1 to Dec 15 or 30? Is this quick processing time for the 5,000 applicants used for the pilot project? Am I am expecting an exact response from you cos you wouldn't really have them. So please feel free to speculate from what you might have garnered from your conversation.

Thanks
