After looking into history of Winnipeg applicants, it appears to me that Winnipeg office is one of the slowest in terms of issuing invitation to oath ceremony. Despite the fact that Winnipeg office process applications quite fast until DM but at the same time it takes about 2 months from DM in average to Oath Letter + about a month to Oath Ceremony for Winnipeg applicants. No complaining just observation :)

Just wrote my citizenship test today. Got 19/20...my advice, read the book a couple time early on and spend the majority of your time working on the practice questions. I'd say 18/20 of the questions were either exactly like the practice questions or a slight reword/restructure of the practice questions. There were one or two date questions as well but moreso understanding the significance of a date, not the actual date itself. I was done in less than 5 minutes but took an extra few minutes to review my answers.

Outside of that, did the interview which had the immigration officer ask a few questions about my employment and living situation plus reviewed my original documents that I submitted. She cross-checked my dates outside the country with what was in my passport, reviewed my CELPIP results, my PR card, Drivers license (about 10-15 minutes), signed another form and that was it. She said the invite for the Oath ceremony should happen before november but I'll probably get an invite for end of summer.

Good luck everyone!

Could you point me in the direction of where to find those practice tests? Are they jut some websites on line? Thanks!
