No one has given any tests since COVID hit from what I can see. Only oath ceremonies have been virtually held. Not sure why we cannot do the tests virtually too (added costs I am sure)

Proctoring will add costs obviously for each applicant. We need to pay per hour for them . If you have in one room need only one proctor...

Hi! Could someone advise. Do I need to renew my home country passport as it expired this month while awaiting my Canadian citizenship as I have already received my AOR?

Only if you are planning to travel or may be traveling in case of emergency.

My status changed to “In Process” on Oct 23 but the extra line about In Process has not been added to my status, any ideas?

Yeah I saw how universities are doing it now. Literally have to turn the webcam on and let someone stare at you the entire duration haha. To be fair, at this point, I am willing to pay the hourly fee to CIC to do that, but dont know if they have the tech or systems in place. So we all have to wait till they can do tests in person. I think it is still possible in a socially distant manner with some creativity

Quick newbie question - Is there a way to find the latest date that the citizenship is granted, till date?

Looking at the 2020 Citizenship applicants spreadsheet, on the 'Processing time comparison' tab, I am seeing no updates other than 'AOR to IP' after Sep 2019. I was wondering if this is where I should be looking or some where else?

Thanks!
