Hello members, Happy Friday! Any idea on the average time frame to receive the AOR from the time the application is received by CIC?

For question 12, did everyone include the tax year 2019? Asking as we cannot yet file taxes for 2019?

So, do I start from 2018 and go backwards?

Or, start from 2020, 2019, but check No for the 'Required to File' and 'Taxes Filed' columns?

I actually started from 2018 and went all the way down to 2015 (they asked for previous five years, so 2015 is the fifth and final previous year) and I stopped there.

Filed my taxes from 2015 to 2018
That's 4 years of tax filing

But now I'm worried since I did not even include 2019 in that question.

Can anyone please confirm if this is ok??
I hope they just look at the fact that I filed for 4 years and understand that I cannot file 2019 at the moment.

In retrospect, I should have just include 2019 and done "Required-YES" and "Filed-NO"


CAN SOMEONE CONFIRM THIS FOR US PLEASE?

I called IRCC helpline for that and they told me to include 2019 and answer no to filed. As long as you have 3 out of the last 5 years filed, you should be ok.

Based on the spreadsheet, it's looking like 3 months from the time your application was delivered until you'd get an AOR
if you look at the spreadsheet for January applicants, it seems Jan applicants received their AORs sooner than the applicants from other months. Last year In 2019 it was 53 days I believe, while applicants from other months had to wait a lot longer.

The agency is approved by RCMP. I do not have any relationship or personal interest, I am just letting know if anyone needs any help with fingerprinting service in future. Contact details are :

Hello everyone

I am working on citizenship application forms and planing to submit coming Monday.

I need ur guidance regarding question 10a (5 years eligibility addresses).

I hv completed my 1095 days in 4.5 years and I became Permanent Resident (landed immigrant) 4.5 years back.Should I write down my all addresses since the date of my PR till signature date on the application (that will become 4.5 years) or

I should write down 5 years address history ;altough I was not PR 4.5 years back and was in my homeland.
Waiting for your response.
Thanks
