Hi, my sister and I went through the process through our degree and certificate attached on the application. But a separate document from our University was attached, clearly stating that all the courses we have finished to get the degree were all in English. I believe the document was called, "English as a medium of instructions."

It would be risky to just send your wife's diploma and TOR, as they may just not review it. When I reviewed my application package with an expert for Citizenship application, she mentioned that it should "explicitly say that English was the medium of language."

Hope this helps. :)

:) Or look at my timeline.. I guess they are busy processing Malala's extended family papers !!

BTW has anyone tried GCMS for their citizenship application?
No I haven't. It takes a month to receive it. I thought I will be done before I need to order one :(

I applied for a Canadian Citizenship Certificate in January 2017. Pretty uncomplicated, my mother was born in Canada.
It shows my application was received January 27th 2017. I just received my citizenship certificate today in the mail.
So quite a bit faster than the 5 months they estimated it would take.

Legalcitizen and Sa3Sa3, my timeline is worse than yours. I mailed my app at the end of December and its been IP since the 3rd week of Jan. I expected the FP request to push things out a bit but not so much :(

there is no premium processing for citizenship applications.. so IMO all applicants should receive same service... if some office receives more applications then CIC needs to increase staff or open more offices..look Mississauga office applications, they are delayed by at least three months when compared to other offices..
