I received the email for my test this afternoon test window is from Sept 13th to October 5th. The update on my account still shows Sept 13th to October 3rd.
Congrats, I think the email was sent a day later, so they are compensating for the missed day.

So she got it but you haven't yet?

And how was the decision communicated? Did you receive it by email/tracker/ecas?

And what about the Oath date?
For me, decision was made in July 2021 ( I m July 2020 applicant). There is no communication for "Decision Made" it appears on E-Case where as everything get completed on new tracker except Citizenship ceremony.

Hi All,

I got a note from IRCC that I need to provide a Police clearance certificate since I spent more than 183 days in another country during the past 4 years from the date of application which was in February. If we take the current date and calculate 4 years back from now, I would not have spent 183 days in another country (since I have spent another 6 months within Canada from February to September). Do I still need a PCC? Also I see that while IRCC has requested for PCC, Background verification has been marked as Completed in the online tracker. The current application status shows as "we are waiting for information from you".

Update: Background verification Completed on (Sept 15 2021)
Should I be prepared to take the test in a few weeks?
My timeline is same as yours. We both should receive test invite soon. I heard the citizenship test status will go in progress and 5 days later will change to scheduled for test and you will get email before your scheduled test day.

They consider from the day of the application. Its better to provide PCC ASAP.

too bad, I know Commissionaires in Canada do international service https://www.commissionaires-ottawa.on.ca/pages/services-en/fingerprinting-background-screening/international-fingerprinting/, might be worth checking with them. You probably need to wait for the email though. It should come in soon.

Ah ok, hopefully things improve soon!

Congrats! No one can predict when we will get the test invite :(

Some people get this request, so it is normal. The email should come in soon.
Thanks for the advice!
I reached out to commisionaries and they were extremely helpful! No need to head back to Canada!

So background verification is marked as completed but they still requested a police certificate? This is strange. How are your other things moving? Can you post your application timelines?

Yes, I am not sure what that means as well. My timeline is below
Online Application submitted: Feb 15
AOR: Aug 10
Additional Information (PCC) Requested: Aug 31
Background verification marked as complete: Sep 2
Application marked as Waiting for your information and no further movement. So I assume they will resume processing only after submitting PCC
