Hi Everyone,

I am working on my Citizenship application and planning to submit it by 1st week of January. I created this forum as I couldn't find one for the 2019 applicants.

If there is an existing forum, I would request the Champion members to guide me there.

I have few questions and I am looking for someone to help me with them:

1) I landed in Canada on 20Jan2015. My eligibility period starts from 2014 Jan and I was in India waiting for my PR then.

Do I need a Police Clearance Certificate from India for this time?

2) I came here on spouse PR so never wrote a language test. Though my PGDM/ MBA degree and mark sheets are in English (it didn't state that the medium of instruction was English).

I also have my High School and Higher Secondary Certificate which is in two languages( English and Hindi) and it mentions that English was my subject and my scores in exams.

Will all these documents suffice as proof of English? Do I still need a letter from my college stating medium of Instruction was English?

3) Do I need to submit my Notice of Assessment for Tax Years to speed up my process?

Looking forward to your advice :)

I am also planning to submit my application on this Jan 2019.

What I understand from CIC website/other forum that:

1) You don't need PCC if you were not visited outside of Canada for more that 183 days after you landed here

2) Not sure about that!

3) You don't need your NOA

For question 1: you will need a police certificate if you have lived in country other than Canada for 180 during your eligibility period. In your case, it seems like you have spent more than 180 days in India during your eligibility period. A police certificate is required.


For question 2: I am not sure but seems like your medium of instruction was English, then its not a problem

For question 3: NOA for which tax year? your question is not clear. In your case, you will need to have NOA for 2015, 2016, and 2017.

Hello folks,

I am also planning to submit my citizenship application in January. Need some advice:

for Q13: I was a student in Australia. Which dates do I need to mention under effective date and end date? My visa was issued in April 2008 but I landed in August 2008. Visa expiry date was March 2010 but I left the country in December 2009. Super confused what dates do I have to mention?

Thanks!

Hey January applicants!

A new tracking spreadsheet has been created for 2019:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1V2kMI1QtzlMj8k4shG0IBLnS8GqOhoJDkem5HloNe0I/edit#gid=1316748968

If you'd like to monitor your cohort and update for everyone please let me know on CaCitizenship@gmail.com and I'll grant you access. If you just want to be added to the sheet, post your information in this forum.
Hi CaCitizenship,
Thank you for creating this new tracking spreadsheet. Will you grant a 'view only' access to the public in the near future? It seems to be a closed link at the moment. Thank you.

Hi pillow, I noticed your physical presence is 1095 days. Is your eligibility period January 2014 to January 2019?

I am about to fill up an application for the same physical presence. The eligibility period is January 2014 to January 2019. Arrived in Canada September 2015. So January 2014 to August 2015, still in home country. That is more than 180 days outside Canada within eligibility period. Did you get Police Clearance Certificate?
