Unfortunately I didn't have time to ask questions as I was in a work meeting when they called. I am Downtown but appointments were towards the end of November and I wanted to get it over with, so will go to Richmond. Apprently Richmond and Abbs aren't as full, but still booked up 2 weeks ahead.
I asked the lady on the phone to book me for the soonest available appointment at any location and she straight out lied to me. She said, and I quote, "Yes, November 17th will be it, there's no other appointments available elsewhere before then". This was at 1 27pm today and now I can see others getting booked at various other locations earlier than my appointment that were called after.

This whole process has highlighted the sheer incompetence of Service Canada and mismanagement of the process by IRCC. That's the last I'll say of it as I try and remain positive and thankful that at least I have a confirmed appointment now.

Here's hoping you all get your calls soon so you can be put out of your misery!

That is the last you'll hear of me being negative, I just had to get it out!

I am very grateful that I have my appointment booked and I have my fingers crossed for you and everyone else that your appointments get locked in soon!
Thank you! I hope you get a COPR soon! :)

AOR 10 JAN in Surrey and waiting!
I can imagine the anxiety. I hope they start with Surrey tomorrow and call you immediately. This is unbelievable. There can't be that many applicants on Surrey. I say open up the online booking so we can all book
